Scratching at the New York International Fringe Festival
Produced by The Skeleton Rep
By Britton Buttrill
Directed by Ria T. DiLullo
Sex, drugs, and illegal tattoos collide in the New York premiere of Britton Buttrill’s Scratching. Set in a nameless blue collar town in the Deep South, we open on the trailer of Brianna, a smart girl dumbed down to stripping for a living. Her boyfriend, Christian, is trying to scrape out a future giving illegal tattoos after a cocaine-induced slip of his hand blacklisted him from licensed parlors in New York City. Brianna and Christian’s meager lives begin spiraling out of control when Christian’s ex-fiancé–– New York actress, Tracy–– arrives with a new ring on her finger and the desire to get Christian back. It is then that Adrian, Christian’s brother, enters the mix with a bag of MDMA that promises financial stability. A doomed circle of unrequited love unfolds between the four of them, causing Adrian and Christian to confront the past, the present, and ultimately each other.
- FEMALE (NON-WHITE) for the role of Tracy.
We will be auditioning by appointment only until July 1st.
