GABRIOLA PLAYERS AUDITION CALL
For the Production of Psychopathia Sexualis
A comedy in two acts by John Patrick Shanley
Lucille and Arthur are engaged to be married, but Arthur has a problem. Actually, he has three problems: he has a fetish for his father’s argyle socks; Lucille does not know about this fetish; and Arthur’s psychiatrist, the evil Dr. Block, has stolen the socks. Arthur enlists the assistance of his best friend, Howard, to retrieve the socks. Howard meets with Dr. Block, but is foiled and humiliated in his attempt to retrieve the socks. Ellie, Howard’s wife and Lucille’s best friend, spills the beans about Arthur’s dilemma and Lucille decides to confront Dr. Block.
