Alma – Ten Minute Character Piece for a Female Actor

$5.50

A ten minute comedic piece for a female actor with offstage/audience voices thrown in sporadically throughout as she addresses them. Alma, a Jewish woman in her sixties, gives a blow by blow account of her life, from her dead husband, to her grudingly supportive brother in law – who likes her to support him in more ways than one, to her liposuctioned sister in law, to her tattoo, which she’ll happily show you.

The piece is meant to be performed by a younger actress, dressed up as a sixty five year old woman in a belted dress, large boobs, small waist, old woman’s shoes, knee high stockings, a wobbly wig and a purse under her arm. She is full of sass and doesn’t take no for an answer! The pice can be performed as a monologue and would be ideal for comedic auditions.
