Project Main Details
This is an audition for "Elizabeth Burroughs," who is a white, female with a Virginia twang about 59 years old. It is a dinner conversation of a white family that Booker T Washington would be overhearing as a slave. It takes place in the late 1850s, early 1860s at the dawn of the Civil War.
It would be in an object theater in a museum. Please read MRS. ELIZABETH BURROUGHS lines only. Please pronounce lines with correct Virginia twang, keep in mind the tone of the conversation, and the age of your character.
Thank you! We look forward to hearing your record!

Lord, it is hot today! Booker, pull that fan a might harder. Gotta, get these flies out of here.
Sound of fanning begins and continues throughout.
Here, pa. Drink some water.
Thank you, Frank.
What do we have here, chicken again, Ma?
Oh, hush now, Billy… there’s sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, corn, ham, salad, hot biscuits ... If war comes, who knows what kind of food we’ll be able to get!
Now, that’s enough of that. Eat up. With the grace of God, we won’t go hungry.
The conversation stops for a moment, leaving the sounds of eating and fanning.
James Burroughs (continued)
But war is coming… the North appears bent on that, seems clear enough.
The Yankees want to free all the slaves. So what’s there left to talk about? I’m ready to fight! What about you, Frank?
You bet, Billy. We should be able to decide for ourselves what we want to do. If we want slaves, we should be able to have slaves.
I can’t imagine Virginia without our people.
It would destroy all that we have worked for. Anyway, I don’t know where they’d go… We feed them. We care for them. Where would they go without anyone to look after them?
If fighting does start, I just want us all to stay safe. You never know what can happen once the bullets start flying.
I just heard at over at Holland’s post office that our boys already started firing on the Federals in Fort Sumter in South Carolina.
So it’s started?
Don’t know, Billy. Could just be another rumor.
Enough talk of war. Let’s have some of these ginger-cakes, shall we?
I love ginger-cakes!
I know it’s your favorite, Frank.
Me, too. How could anyone not love these?
Sound of fanning begins to slow (as the young Booker T. Washington’s mind turns to the ginger-cakes…)
Booker, pay attention, don’t slow up on that fanning.
Sound of fanning starts up again and fades out.
