The Bluest Eye By Toni Morrison
Pretend the Casting Director for Audio Books R Us sends you this email: "Hi this is Sara from Audio Books R Us. We are currently casting the Toni Morrison's book "The Bluest Eye". I heard your audio book demo and would like you to audition for this piece. Below is a sample of the script. It is important in this piece for the narrator to have a clear point of view and not be just a voice reading the words. Please submit one auditions sample and make sure to slate first with your name and the title of the script. Thanks."
The first twigs are thin, green, and supple. They bend into a complete circle, but will not break. Their delicate, showy hopefulness shooting from forsythia and lilac bushes meant only a change in whipping style. They beat us differently in the spring. Instead of the dull pain of a winter strap, there were these new green switches that lost their sting long after the whipping was over. There was a nervous meanness in these long twigs that made us long for the steady stroke of a strap or the firm but honest slap of a hairbrush. Even now spring for me is shot through with the remembered ache of switchings, and forsythia holds no cheer.
