Audition - The Tragedy of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Show information

Runs Aug 3-13 (5 performances), as part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival

Written by Dave Stagner

Directed by Paul von Stoetzel

The Tragedy of Obi-Wan Kenobi is a retelling of Star Wars, starting with a simple question… “What if Obi-Wan Kenobi was actually the villain?” What other secrets might be hiding in plain sight? It’s a comedy that asks serious questions about who we are, and why we do what we do.

Actors should prepare a one to two minute monologue, either comedy or drama. Familiarity with (and love for) Star Wars is a big plus.
