Reader's Diary #1905- Gary Beck: The Audition

Gary Beck's "The Audition" is a timely story of an awkward audition. I say it's timely as the director spends too long leering at the actor's breasts, but let's face it, this would have been unfortunately timely ever since males have been directors. But at least now more people are more loudly calling bullshit.

While the director's behaviour may be typical, the rest of the audition is anything but. Told from the actor's point of view, we hear her confusion and doubts but she nonetheless is unflappable and acquiesces to the odd requests. Will it be enough to land her a role and would she even want one?

"The Audition" is a quick but interesting piece with a rich voice.
