About the Play: When Annie and Peter decide to adopt, they come to set their sights on a child from Africa. But when the reality of this choice sinks in, it opens a well of uncertainty that speaks to their very identity as White Americans. Politically-charged and tack-sharp, The Call is a startling portrait of cultural divide, casting global issues into the heart of an American home. The role of Rebecca has been cast.

Seeking submissions from AEA members. AEA members must submit themselves directly in order to be considered via this posting (no agent or third-party submissions).


Caucasian woman, 30s-Early 40s. A renowned artist who radiates warmth and affability. She is funny, yet poised, and capable of throwing a great dinner party. She has put her painting on the back burner to become a fulltime mother. A struggle with infertility has left her somewhat bruised emotionally. By the end of the play, she has gone on a soul-searching journey to a place of hope.

Caucasian man, Mid 40s. Annie’s loving and devoted husband. He is mature but hasn’t lost his sweetness, yet he’s seen more of the world than he cares to reveal. His immense desire to be a father makes him capable of taking a leap of faith that puts his marriage to the test.

African-American woman, Mid-Late 30s. Rebecca’s parnter, an emerging artist that has recently received wide recognition. She has strong opinions about race that she will argue for argument’s sake. Beneath her hip and edgy façade, she will take the high road when necessary.

African born man, Late 30s- Mid 40s. Buoyant and affable, he is a vivid storyteller with an offbeat sense of humor. While he first appears to be upfront, open, and a tad eccentric, he is capable of flashes of anger when pressed.
