Approximate Playing Time: 20 minutes

The stage is empty; actors set in the audience; auditions for A Streetcar Named Desire about to begin. The Director arrives, bullhorn in hand, warning all that he feels like he hasn’t slept in 48 hours and he has not had his Starbucks. Cranky and arrogantly argumentive, the Director shows little tolerance for a scrawny young man who insists on reading for Stanley Kowalski. To shut him up, he gives him the directive to audition for the role as Hitler. Five tall, hairy apish men in their late 20's, all reasonable candidates for Stanley, join him in a bizarre German rendition of "Anything Goes". Oddly impressed, the Director offers him a role in the play, but not as Stanley. Unable to wage an argument, the young man accepts the role of “The Young Man." A young woman arrives carrying Starbucks, apologizing for being late, that she can’t "do nothin' without no coffee." When the Director asks for which role she is auditioning she replies, "Stanley Kowalski." $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $20 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
