Auditions - Howick Little Theatre “The Pink Hammer”
By Michele Amas
Director Patricia Wichman

The play is set in a "well-loved builder's workshop - a shrine to masculinity". Four women turn up looking for Maggie Taylor’s promise of empowerment through basic carpentry skills, chiselling away the stereotype that "tools and building is a man’s job". Only, someone forgot to tell Woody. It’s his shrine, and now he finds himself up against four very different women demanding the service they paid for.

- Woody (30-40s): a recently made redundant carpenter; empowerment sounds like something you plug into a wall socket – wants to build an exit for these bloody women!

- Annabelle (40-50s): an active feminist turned counselor - she wants to build a Victorian style cabinet.

- Louise (40-50s): a nurse, caring for her elderly parents when she’s not at work - she wants to build herself a small house.

- Helen (50-60s): prefers horses to people, never married, two grown-up sons - she wants to build a coffin.

- Siobhan (30-40s): Irish, lives with her cousin, getting it on with the local vet Martin – she wants to build a luxury kennel for Martin’s labradoodle. (A generic but solid Irish accent is required)
