Upcoming Non-Equity Auditions
for VERDICT by Agatha Christie
OSA is holding Non-Equity OPEN AUDITIONS for their upcoming production of Verdict by Agatha Christie
Directed by Elisabeth Cooper
Show runs Oct 13th through Nov 5th. Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 3:00pm. All performances are at OnStage Atlanta
Info on show and production:
Karl Hendryk, a brilliant professor, attends to his wife Anya, an invalid suffering from a progressive disease who bitterly regrets having been forced to move to England. When Karl's cousin Lisa moves in to assist in caring for Anya, tensions rise and feelings are quick to develop. The situation is further disturbed when a rich young student, Helen Rollander, takes on private lessons with the professor. Often misleadingly described as a murder mystery, the murder in Verdict happens on stage in clear view of the audience. The story becomes an intriguing exploration of motive, a whydunnit, rather than a whodunnit.

4 women, 20s-60s
