Preparation: Please prepare a 1-minute contemporary dramatic monologue. You may be asked to read sides from the script.
They hire students, local and regional actors, and equity actors.
Danny Dunkelman: male, 30s to early 50s, Legal Aid lawyer, Jewish. Workaholic, sardonic at times, takes for granted the superiority of his tolerance.
Mike Downey: male, twenties, a Skinhead. Intense, intelligent (outside of the blind spots of his prejudice), with a sly sense of humor at moments.
A neo-Nazi Skinhead is charged with murder in Toronto. Legal Aid assigns him a Jewish lawyer, and they collaborate on a defense. The Skinhead is pushed beyond his prejudice, while the lawyer is forced to examine the limits of his own liberal tolerance, and the demons that might be underneath it. Cherry Docs is a white-hot examination of hate and how hard it is to uproot from society.
