This play is a dark comedy with many twists and turns. Our marketing blurb is “It is a cold night.. a woman waits at a bus stop.. and a boy walks up. That’s all we can tell you about this perfect little tale for the Halloween season” and that really is all we want to share about the story of this play. Detailed information about each character may be found below.
All roles are open and each may be played by any ethnicity, however, an American accent is required for each. Indicated ages are for the characters. Actor ages do not need to match as long as you can believably play the character’s age range.
WOMAN | F | 40-50 | A woman on a precipice. At the beginning of the play, she is in survival mode with little energy left for the expected niceties and pleasantries. One gets a sense there was once a smart, funny, vibrant woman there but life has beaten that out of her.
BOY | M | late teens | A ball of energy. Very talkative with a keen intelligence and curiosity. His youth and outgoing personality mask a darker essence at his core.
MAN | M | mid-40s to mid-50s | Somewhat resigned to life. Has a crusty edge and dry sense of humor. He owns a small liquor store. He’s seen it all and not much ruffles him anymore.
All actors will be asked to read sides from the script. Sides will be made available for downloading as we get closer to the audition date.
Please bring a copy of your resume and, if at all possible, have an attached photo of yourself. It doesn’t need to be professionally shot, and can be small and printed right in the corner of your resume, but it is useful to include that to help the director remember you later.
