BREAKDOWN

SEEKING:

SAUL: Male. 60s. Saul is a recently retired History Professor living with Alzheimer’s, and the husband to Linda, father to Sammi and Ariel. He is a complex equation of emotional and ordered. He is sometimes lovely and sometimes volatile. Underneath all the layers, he has a deep love for his family and the Jewish customs with which he grew up. Saul and his family are people who don’t fear humor and have tremendous wit always at their fingertips. They speak before they think, are incredibly facile with language, and have a no-holds barred approach to conversation. Think quick tempo, always.

SAMMI: Female. Early 30s. Sammi is the eldest daughter who moved across the country to find herself. She currently teaches history in San Francisco. She is warm and protective of her sister, but runs hot and cold with her parents. She’s a bit on edge and confused about the Passover gathering, but knows all will be well once David arrives and they can announce their engagement. Sammi and her family are people who don’t fear humor and have tremendous wit always at their fingertips. They speak before they think, are incredibly facile with language, and have a no-holds barred approach to conversation. Think quick tempo, always.

LINDA: Female. 60s. Linda is a brilliant and strong-willed psychologist with a new book on the rise. She is the wife to Saul and mother to Sammi and Ariel. She can sometimes be childlike, but always theatrical. She tends to hold her cards and her feelings close. She hosts an elaborate and nostalgic Seder in hopes of bringing back her husband’s memory. Linda and her family are people who don’t fear humor and have tremendous wit always at their fingertips. They speak before they think, are incredibly facile with language, and have a no-holds barred approach to conversation. Think quick tempo, always.
