Breakdown

Synopsis: It’s 1979 and progress is about to land on everybody’s doorstep, sometimes gently and other times with a giant thud. Not all members of the Price family feel the same about what change means, but by the time they acknowledge that the landscape has shifted, it may already be too late to save their way of life.

SEEKING:

SCOTT PRICE
18 years old. Youngest son. Corn-fed, fresh-faced. Should move well. His ambition is transparent and "as high as an elephant's eye" and all of that rot. The young people are all ambitious. Scott has a good outgoing personality and is musically and theatrically talented. Soaring lyric tenor. Low A to high A.

ADAM PRICE
Late 40’s to early 50’s. Father, strong build. Adam is a proud, stoic man. One of few(er) words, but whose lack of words is made up for in depth of their meaning. He has never been giddy. His face is lined and weathered from years of hard, honest work. The parents have wisdom and common sense and knowledge acquired from doing and living but don't have much higher education or sophistication. Baritone. Low F to High F.

PAULA PRICE
Late 40’s. In decent shape from constant work, but occasionally unconsciously signals that her hip gives her pain. To balance off Adam's stoicism, Paula is slightly more visible with her emotions...like a bottle of champagne which has lost most, but not all, of its bubbles. Throughout her life, she has "gone with the program" and been a good mother but somewhere inside is still the young girl with ribbons in her hair Adam met long ago at the county fair. The parents have wisdom and common sense and knowledge acquired from doing and living but don't have much higher education or sophistication. Mezzo Soprano. Low A to F.

GLEN PRICE
Mid 20’s. Oldest son, also plays Figure #1 in “Progress” number. Doubles as YOUNG FATHER at the end. To see him is to sense a slight disconnect between his appearance, intellect and his environment. He was not to the farmhouse born. At this point in his life, his overalls should have been dirtier. The young people are all ambitious. Glen and Kelly are college educated and intelligent. Baritenor. Low G# to High G.

KELLY PRICE
22 years old. Also plays Figure #2 in “Progress” number. Doubles as YOUNG MOTHER at the end. "Tomboy" is too easy but, that said, she seems far more suited to her overalls than Glen does to his. The first tide of national feminism has reached her and, in its grip, she revels and dreams of, literally, higher places. The young people are all ambitious. Glen and Kelly are college educated and intelligent. Alto/Belter. Low F to a D.

JACKSON WEBB
Late 20’s to Early 30’s. Local Realtor, son of Adam’s contemporary. A farmer's son, his love for the soil was soiled early by both his natural greed and his disposition. He is a salesman with precious little to sell. His contempt for his humble beginnings (and those with whom he shared it) is always veiled by an oily, feigned smile. Jackson is on the sly side. A fast talker. A sales guy. If he's a little swarthy that's okay because he could be of Italian descent. Baritenor. Low A to High G.

Note: All actors need flawless American accents. The play takes place in Western New York. It’s mostly just a flat Midwestern sound.
