Alex Roe , Director
First rehearsal 1/17/18
First Performance: 2/16/18
A comedy of country and city life when well- intentioned and determined lovers of each must contend with falling in love with one another. The valiant effort of a city boy to break himself to his country wife's little town nearly succeeds, in spite of its inertia and its judgments. At least his failure opens some hitherto closed eyes and hearts
Equity’s contracts prohibit discrimination. Equity is committed to diversity and encourages all its employers to engage in a policy of equal employment opportunity designed to promote a positive model of inclusion. As such, Equity encourages performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to submit.
Seeking comic actors of all ethnicities for 19th- century comedy. Facility with period and manner essential, but there will be no restriction to specific racial or ethnic type.
Submitting actors will also be considered for roles of similar ages not listed.
25 to 35 years old, male, any ethnicity. The striving hero of the tale. Energetic, charming, and comical, with a personal integrity equal to his high spirits. A New York spark in love with an overbearing man’s daughter, he will do what it takes to win her heart...up to a point. (Actor submitting will also be considered for Ned Jessamine - similar type, but less constant.)
55 to 75 years old, male, any ethnicity. No-nonsense, rigid, provincial father of an obedient daughter, intent on keeping her so. Affable enough, but unyielding.
25 to 30 years old, male, any ethnicity. Erstwhile but hapless suitor of anyone who will have him. Sweet tempered, easy-going, yearning for love, and always five minutes late to every opportunity.
55 to 75 years old, male, any ethnicity. A spark that has nearly gone out: as a spirited young man, he found himself stranded in a provincial town from which he and his straight-laced wife have never escaped. And yet now, he has his one last chance. (Submitting actors will also be considered for Prof. Merrywell and Mr. Gash, more contented gentlemen of the town.)
25 to 35 years old, female, any ethnicity. Spirited, determined woman possessed of forgiveness equal to her charm. Devoted to a husband who is deeply in love with her, but cannot keep himself from roaming. She is never grievously betrayed, but neither ever given the commitment she is due.
20 to 30 years old, female, any ethnicity. Obedient, ebullient, and resourceful daughter to an unreasonably restricting father. Torn between her love before an entirely worthy partner and her duty to a beloved father.
50 to 60 years old, female, any ethnicity. Prudish, upright, leading citizen and chief gossip of a very small town in which she is a very big fish. (Submitting actors will also be considered for Mrs. Merrywell.)
