A HATFUL OF RAIN
by Michael Gazzo
directed by Gregory Naughton
1st reh: 7/21/14. Opens: 8/16/14. Closes: 8/30/14

seeking:

POLO POPE:
Italian-American, 28 to 38. Emotionally still a child. The black-sheep brother to Johnny’s ''golden child''. Masculine but submissive, sweet but tough.

JOHNNY POPE:
Italian-American, 28 to 40. Handsome. The 1st and ''golden'' child. Naturally stoic (which helps mask his heroin addiction from his loved ones) but his war experience in Korea has left him deeply wounded (on the inside).

CELIA:
28 to 38. Emotional center of the play. A nice girl from the suburbs who is trapped in this grim urban working-class environment. Has discovered that she is stronger than even she knew. Nonetheless, after the last 5 years of Johnny’s absence, she is at the breaking point.

JOHNNY POPE SR (FATHER):
Italian-American, 55 to 75. Johnny and Polo’s estranged father. A stern and physically imposing man (or once was). Selfish with a hot temper and strong bias for his first son (Johnny)— though he was abusive and neglecting of both.

MOTHER:
Male 40-55. Drug-pusher and addict. His intensity and ruthlessness may be misconstrued as sadism, but Mother is more accurately a stone-cold business man. Can be charming, but must be scary.
