Equity actors for various principal roles in this new play.
Alexander, a young man freshly married, is building his promising asset management career. Alexander is tempted by distractions from his life and can get lost in the overbearing demands of his parents. His young wife Eva is lonely and yearning for a family, a dream that seems so close upon the arrival of Silver, a young, seemingly abandoned but surprisingly knowledgeable kid. Who is he? Who are his parents? Can he appease the tensions arising within the young couple’s home and help them find a way?
Seeking actors of any ethnicity for the following roles, some of which will double:
Male, mid to late 20s. A young NYC professional and husband to Eva. Uncertain about the future of his new job, which is not really his thing. Manipulates his way through life.
Male, 40s-early 50s. YOULENSKY: A successful businessman, powerful, aggressive, and arrogant. A trickster. GRAVIER: A company rep, well-groomed, who tries his best. Quiet and cautious, he is attentive to detail.
Male, 40s-early 60s. ZACHARY: Thin, tall, and strong. Less practical than the women. MR. BLUMENTHAL: An Eastern European immigrant, tall and attractive with a slight accent. Holds on to the values of his immigrant family.
Female, 40s-early 60s. EMERY: Zachary’s wife, pale and thin. Adept at physical/vocal changes. MRS. BLUMENTHAL: Motherly figure. An Eastern European immigrant with a still-audible accent.
Female, mid to late 20s. EVA: Alexander’s young wife, quiet and gentle. Doesn’t work and wants a simple life; at odds with Alexander’s lifestyle. LESLEY: A beautiful, excitable young woman. Interested in business and knows how to use her looks and sex appeal, though she may not be quite comfortable doing so.
Male or female adult to play 10-12 year old boy. Unearthly boy – wise, smart listener, and able to manipulate situations. An advisor to Alexander and Eva.
