Project Main Details

Lillian Blackpool 
This is a comedy that's usually pretty light, though it gets dark sometimes. At one point, it's pitch black. It's about a recluse who finds an antique telephone in her house shortly after her husband dies. The telephone can call two places: Heaven, and Hell. The show has an old radio sitcom feel, with episodes bookended by encouraging phone calls with her husband. For the bulk of the piece, though, Lillian is world-weary.

Lillian Blackpool is about 70, though flashbacks in our show feature her in middle-age as well. She is Jewish, but this is not necessarily reflected in her accent or mannerisms.

(The brief monologue provided as a side is adapted loosely from The Romantic Woman by Gregorio Martinez Sierra and has no commercial purpose, being only for use in our audition process)

Script Details

I was jealous of every woman my husband looked in the face ... and he was a portrait painter, do you remember? My second husband always felt tortured by his own jealousy ... of your grandfather. That was prophetic. Your grandfather was our neighbor in those days, and he used to stand and look at me from his balcony. And then he was always jealous of my second husband, who was dead by that time, God knows, but that only made it worse. Well, they're all in Heaven now, and I'm almost sorry I worried them so. Looking back, I know I was a good wife.
