Pillow Talk Auditions
Written and directed by Andy Payne
Pillow Talk is a tragic comedy about life, love and the promises we make. Written specifically for community theatre, this show calls for a strong and dedicated cast capable of nuancing characters with a light comic touch combined with sincerity in the darker moments.
In act one we follow the development of our leading couple, Henrietta and Harry, who have stolen an illicit week together, escaping the monotony of their respective marriages to find passion and eventually love in each other's arms.
Act two sees them happily married with grown-up children but facing an uncertain medical future. Visits from Cassie, their daughter and Justin, Henrietta's son from her previous marriage, complicate the family dynamic. The play references the Victorian Assisted Dying legislation, the choices we have and the meaning of love.
