In The Few, QZ keeps her small newspaper going in her northern Idaho town by running personal ads from lovelorn truckers. When Bryan, her publisher and former lover, returns, the two must revisit the past and reconsider the roads their own long-haul journey has travelled. A funny and bighearted play about our longing for connection and the barriers we place in our way.
The Few will also feature the voices of 17 San Diegans who auditioned to portray the lonely characters who place personal ads via answering machine for the play's struggling newspaper. The Old Globe held an open voiceover call for the public on July 21 to find authentic voices representing a variety of ages, genders and personalities. From the over 100 community members from across San Diego County who auditioned, director Davis McCallum selected 17 of the most unique and compelling to work with him in a recording session. Together, these voice recordings create a distinct and vibrant storytelling component that will be heard throughout the run of the production.
The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (Scenic Design), Jessica Pabst (Costume Design), Matt Frey (Lighting Design), Daniel Kluger (Original Music and Sound Design), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting) and Annette Yé (Stage Manager).
