Rehearsal and character information for The ForeignerBy
For those auditioning for The Foreigner, Bruce Pilgrim, the director, has provided these descriptions of the characters in the show:
Catherine: Female lead role. Age: 20-28. Friendly, energetic, emotional at times, and very concerned about her future marriage to David.
David: Leading man type. Age: 28-35. He plays most of his responses in a straight style. A Preacher who appears honest, friendly, and open, but holds a dark secret.
Froggy: Career British military: Age: 35-45. A man with responsibility. Brave, polite, and must react with surprise at the twists and turns of the plot he helps to create.
Owen: Great character part. Brooding, scheming, uneducated, dirty, unsophisticated, mean, but a true coward at heart. Owen can be aged from 25-55.
Betty: Older woman aged 50-70 who owns the fish camp. She is worried about the future of her business. She is loud and brass and makes herself known whenever she enters a room. She is quite brave and game for an adventure.
Ellard: Younger brother of Catherine. Age: 16-20. He is just a little odd and out of touch. Some might think him stupid or dimwitted, but he is just awkward. The actor playing this role must have a great sense of comic timing.
Charlie: Lead male role: Age: 28-40. Charlie is quite shy around others but opens up by the end of the play. He is the Foreigner who pretends not to know English. He must be able to portray great facial expressions and have a great sense of comic timing.
