Auditions for two new plays.

Website URL FRT_STL First Run Theatre

We produce only new plays by Midwest writers

First Run Theatre is holding auditions for two new plays to be produced at the Kranzberg Black box later this year. These are new, unproduced plays and are a rare opportunity for actors to develop a character for the first time.  We hope to have direct input from the playwrights.


Intellectual Property
by Richard Lyons Conlan Directed by Phil Gill
Production dates August 12 – 21, 2022
Available Roles:
Victor Pagan- Male Presenting (30-50s) A published novelist but with almost no books sold. A confirmed misanthrope.
Guy- Male Presenting (20-30s) A guy. A blogger and fanboy of Vivien’s. Earnest — likable in spite of that.
Vivian Langford- Female Presenting (20s-50s) Quite possibly the biggest movie star working today. A successful writer before her acting success. Takes no shit.
Richonda Baines- Female Presenting (20s-50s) Victor’s agent. Ready to cut ties.
Claire Shephard- Female Presenting (any age) Founder and publisher of Pauper Publishing. Keeps her niche publishing house going out of a pure love of literature.
