“Reputation is only what your worst enemy thinks!” ~ Tillie Petunia
On Strivers Row is a comedy about a wealthy black family in Harlem in the 90s. The play takes place over the course of one day during which the matriarch of the family, Dolly Van Striven, is trying to throw an elaborate debutante dinner for her daughter Cobina. Unfortunately, her social enemy, Tillie Petunia, has a plot to ruin the party, and it is only made easier by the arrival of unexpected guests who seem to have no understanding of the etiquette that is expected on the Row. All hell breaks loose as the cast of family, friends, enemies, lovers and lottery winners all try to make it through one nice evening at the Van Striven residence.
Because this is a comedy and much of the show consists of quick rapport, please either choose one of the scenes below to perform and someone will read with you during your audition, OR bring a short comedic monologue (no longer than 1 minute).
**Director’s Note: Colorism is an important theme in this show and may be taken into account when making casting decisions. HOWEVER, please do not let this discourage you from auditioning for a character you are interested in.
