Synopsis: Rust Belt factory workers share drinks, secrets, and laughs, but when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, two close friends find themselves on opposite sides of a labor battle in this warm-hearted, fast-paced drama that spans generations and includes a cast of characters ages 18 to 70. The winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, the play explores class, addiction, rage, racism, and the loyalties and betrayals that make up our social fabric.
Jason: Male Presenting, 20-30, White / European Descent. He has the strong build of a young man who went from the gridiron straight to the production line; a steel worker with deep working class roots, he is proud of his blue collar heritage and still has faith that his life will be spent in the factory; youthful, tough, funny and charismatic; in prison he hardens into a white supremacist, his optimism transforming into rage.
Evan: Male Presenting, 35-45, Black / African Descent. Chris and Jason’s parole officer in 2008. Evan encourages Chris and Jason to be straightforward and to open up about their struggles reintegrating into society. Has no patience for nonsense.
A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER
Synopsis: When British, newly orphaned Monty Navarro discovers he’s ninth in line to inherit the Earldom of Highhurst, he decides to murder every member of the high-society D’Ysquith family standing in his way, all the while keeping a mistress, Sibella Hallward, and courting the young Phoebe D’Ysquith. In this laugh-filled musical, the same actor plays all eight of the doomed heirs. A Gentleman’s Guide won four Tony Awards in 2014, including Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical.
This is a high-style, British farce & all roles require strong singers with comic skills. We encourage performers to submit for any roles they are interested in; genders listed are those of the character, not the performer.
Montaque “Monty” Navarro: Male Presenting, 25-40, All Ethnicities. Legit baritone. Unexpected leading man & heir to the D’ysquith family fortune, clever, charismatic, endearing, Monty breaks the fourth wall with ease and serves as the audience’s guide into his story often commenting on the action with great humor.
Man #2: Male Presenting, 20-50, All Ethnicities. Bass. Tourist, ancestral portrait, 1st clerk, skater, wedding guest, pub owner, Mr. Cross, 1st newsboy, 1st actor, Lord Asquith’s Physician, mourner, ancestral bust, and Detective Pinkney.
ON CLOVER ROAD
Synopsis: At an abandoned motel on a desolate American road, a distraught mother waits to be reunited with her runaway daughter. Out of desperation, she puts her trust in a private investigator, but no one is who they seem in this edge-of-your-seat, noir-style thriller. Family bonds are pushed to their limits in a gritty story of shocking twists.
Harris McLain: Male Presenting, 30s-50s, All Ethnicities; Charismatic, smooth, but not smarmy at all. He is not to be played as a predator or psychopath. Has the brains and tools to empower a community of people into believing they are the lions of the world. Note: This is a very physical role, calling for stage fighting and falls. There will be a qualified fight choreographer.
