‘The Boy I Paid For’ is a minimalist comedy-drama that looks at the ramifications of our obsession with youth and beauty.

Socially awkward Keith hires beautiful escort Beau for an evening of companionship one Christmas Eve. Keith has no idea what to expect and Beau is treating this like just another job, but as the night goes on, both men realise they have to confront their own truths... and need one another to do it.

Please be aware that this play features a number of intimate scenes that involve touching and kissing another male. While nudity is written in the play, no nudity is required for this particular production. Writers’ Block Theatre values integrity, and makes your comfort and safety our priority.

‘The Boy I Paid For’ is ideal for actors who want to challenge themselves and develop their skills on a number of levels. Please read the character descriptions for more details and only apply if you meet the criteria. You will not be booked for an audition otherwise.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Auditions will be held in mid-late July 2019 for the roles of Beau and Keith.

You will deliver a two-minute monologue that showcases your ability to handle sensitive material. You will also cold read selected scenes and the director will go through some of the more challenging components of the play with you.

The two successful applicants will then be required to attend regular auditions from October 2019 until showtime. (There will be a break over the Christmas/New Year period.)

Beau (Lead)

Beau is a beautiful and charismatic escort. His perfect exterior hides not only a troubled backstory but also an unsettling truth about his life now. He sees his job as a way of helping people become more comfortable and confident with themselves… but he’s never had a client quite like Keith before.

Beau has a number of lengthy monologues, so it is vital that you have experience in performing these as well as being comfortable with intimate scenes.

Keith is a socially inept hermit who hires Beau to mend a heart that has no right to be broken. He is beautiful in his own way but his quirky appearance has led him to believe that he is unattractive. Filled with anxiety, he displays a range of emotions.

He has a number of lengthy monologues, so it is vital that you have experience in performing these as well as being comfortable with intimate scenes.
