Poster of Role Plays: Cornered and Home Free

Role Plays: 2 One-Act Plays”Cornered” by Robert Patrick”Home Free” by Lanford Wilson”Cornered” is a charming, poignant one-act about a young married couple and the juxtaposition between their very active and playful imaginative lives, and the more tangible and impending difficulties that they face in the real world. It is set in the mid-1960’s.”Home Free” is a moving and memorable one-act about a young couple and the similar attempts that they make to juggle the worlds of reality and make-believe. However, due to the constraints of the circumstances and the characters’ own inherent limitations, their efforts yield very different, and quite devastating, results. It is set in the early 1960’s.Roles:She (Cornered) - This role has already been cast.He (Cornered)Lawrence (Home Free)Joanna (Home Free)Audition Info:Male: Please read sides for Cornered, or for Larence from Home Free.
