Beautiful and searing, this timely new play by Carey Crim (23.5 Hours/Conviction) recently premiered at Jeff Daniels’ The Purple Rose Theatre to rave reviews. When a young biology student raised by two mothers decides to learn more about her DNA, she reaches out to the man she believes to be her father, forcing everyone around her to relive a painful hidden past. Recipient of the Jane Chambers Playwriting Award, this important play is about our hunger to understand our past and the choices we make in life.
Nadine Walker: an African American woman in her late forties. A humble and hardworking Aerospace Engineer with a passion for cooking. Brought up by a Baptist minister, Nadine has maintained a strong faith throughout her life. She’s a devoted partner to Allison and has a special relationship with Allison’s daughter Eleanor, but the path hasn’t been smooth for Nadine. She’s good in a crisis and tries to do the best thing, but doesn’t always get it right.
Allison Davis: a caucasian woman aged forty one. Once pursing a career as a dancer, Allison had a catastrophic set back at university and now owns an antique store. An interesting contradiction as Allison desperately tries to let go of the past, she’s also bound by it. In many ways she’s a relaxed and playful person, but raising her daughter as a single mother was not easy and it took her a long time to find trust in her partner Nadine. Despite adoring her family, she’s held secrets from them which have shaped her life.
Eleanor Davis: a caucasian Biology major at Rutgers, aged twenty. Eleanor’s been deeply influenced by her two mothers. She’s not a sorority girl or worried about her looks, instead, she’s her own person and looks to science as a way to understand the world. She’s affectionate and entertaining to be around, but she has a yearning desire to understand who she is.
Rob Wilson: any ethnicity though not caucasian. Currently a senior at Rutgers studying Biology. Comfortable in his own awkwardness, Rob is a kind and funny man who’s protective over the ones he loves. Intelligent, curious and perhaps a bit self-conscious, Rob wants to help and cares a lot.
Doug Larkin: a caucasian man of forty-two. A frat boy turned NYC financial analyst, Doug has lived a privileged life. In his youth, Doug took to the bottle and conducted questionable behaviour which haunts him today. Perhaps the guilt lead to being sober for the past five years and an accept to get his life back on track. Recently married and soon to be a father, Doug has a lot to fight for, but maybe his demons continue to get the better of him.
