Text Samples for Audition. The first scene is mainly action and internal dialogue. The second is a dialogue driven scene among three friends.

SCENE 1: The scene is the discovery of the body on the beach by Daniel, accompanied by Vincent, a collie:

It was a body.
The body of a man.
For a moment he forgot to breathe, then he let out all the air in his lungs in a single burst. It hurt when he moved, walked, let alone ran, but Daniel began covering the distance quickly. It also hadn’t escaped his notice that this part of the beach was where the rainbow was pointing. And there it was now, also ahead of him. Its colours seemed stronger and truer than ever, the closer he drew. In fact, was it his imagination or did the rainbow actually end at the body? The base of the thing showing both him and Vincent where to find the man.
Daniel seemed to move slowly and quickly at the same time, wanting to reach the body but not wishing to see it at all. Vincent never stopped barking in all that time and when Daniel caught up, he crouched to put an arm around the dog. “It’s okay…” he lied, knowing it was nothing of the kind.
The prone figure laying there was only a few meters away now. He was dressed in trousers, a shirt and a jumper, but had no shoes on, only socks. And all of these clothes were dripping wet. His thin, dark hair was also saturated, plastered to his forehead. His eyes were shut, and a streak of red was running from one of his temples across his face.
He’s dead, Daniel said to himself. That man’s dead. Washed up on shore from some kind of wreck, like Robinson Crusoe. Only this guy wasn’t quite so lucky. No camping out and Man Friday for him; just a bash on the head followed by drowning.

SCENE 2 (Daniel interacts with Jill and Greg, his teenage friends at school):

“Hey, Daniel,” shouted Jill, waving. “Hey!”
He pretended not to hear, all the time watching the pair approach out of the corner of his eye. The next thing he knew, Greg was there, giving him a playful punch on the arm. “Oi mate, you deaf or something?”
“I wish I was,” he replied.
“Look who got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning,” Greg said to Jill and they both laughed.
Daniel said nothing.
“We didn’t see you yesterday at the hospital,” Jill said next.
“Didn’t know I was invited,” Daniel replied without missing a beat.
Jill frowned, puzzled. “Invited?”
“Practically the whole of town was in and out of there yesterday,” Greg told him. “Even reporters from the Shorepoint Echo. That’s guy’s pretty popular, I can tell you.”
“They were looking for you Daniel, actually,” Jill pointed out. “You’re a bit of a hero.”
Daniel folded his arms. “I expect they got enough quotes from you two for an article or several.”
“They did take a couple of photos of me and Jill with John,” Greg announced, proudly.
Daniel’s face soured. “John,” he said, that name again like a fishbone in his throat.
“What IS your problem?” asked Greg.
Daniel turned to face him, but Jill stepped between them. “Come on, you two. It’s Monday morning, a school day. There’s enough doom and gloom in the air without this.” She stared at Daniel. “So where were you?”
“I was at the police station,” Daniel informed her.
