The Catskill Community Players are holding auditions for all interested in acting to fill the roles in The Real Inspector Hound, a one-act comedy by Tom Stoppard. This is a hilarious award-winning comedy that calls for 3 women and 5 men, and a radio voice.

This one-act play, actually a play within a play, involves two theatre critics reviewing a play who get caught up in a murder-mystery with the on-stage actors. A dead body is found at Muldoon Manor in Essex, the radio announces a madman is on the loose, and soon Inspector Hound shows up at the scene of the crime. But is he the real Inspector Hound?

Diana Friedell, a veteran director and actor from Oneonta will direct and produce the show, which will be shown at the Wieting Theatre in Worcester, preceded by a special theatre dinner at the Worcester Inn across the street, on November 11th, 12th and a matinee showing on Nov. 13th .

The roles called for are Moon and Birdboot, the two theater critics (middle aged or so), Mrs. Drudge (the Maid), Simon (the mysterious handsome visitor who both Cynthia and Felicity fall for), Lady Cynthia Muldoon, (the very proper lady of the Manor) Felicity (the young friend of Lady Cynthia, Inspector Hound (Parody of a Scotland Yard Inspector), and Major Magnus Muldoon (the wheel-chair ridden elder relative, obviously disguised).

Selections of the script can be read at or in its entirety by searching on-line. Auditions are open to anyone interested in acting, experienced or not.
