BREAKDOWN

ELENA STEIN
30, a white woman. A soulful odd bird. Verve, heart and a vulnerability that she often covers with wit. A secular Jew who’s grown up in many different cities, she’s lived in her native NYC long enough that we recognize it in her speech and energy.
LUKE CAMPBELL
28, an African-American man. A passionate strong teddy-bear of a man; freedom loving, curious, and honest. While he is usually in control of himself, he’s capable of losing his temper.
JERRY
A youngish white man. He is our Guide and the “Stage Manager” of this play. Idealistic, funny and eloquent, we like and trust him. A good sense of comedy and poetry. This actor must be able to play a wide variety of roles, ages, types, and accents and quickly transform in and out of them.
SAL
50s, white. Sal is an Italian-American New Yorker; outgoing, a performer, appetitive. He is aware of his power in the union, and confident in his belief that he wields his power for the common good. This actor will also briefly play a couple of other roles, from a grizzled electrician in his late 60s to a little boy.
SWING WOMAN ONE
A young black woman. Also plays a wide variety of roles, from a teenaged male hip hop dancer to a young Latina to a little boy. Must be able to play a wide variety of ages, types, and accents, and quickly transform in and out of them.
SWING WOMAN TWO
A middle aged woman (white or Latina). Plays roles ranging from a white homemaker to a middle-aged Latina to a late middle aged man. Must be able to play a wide variety of ages, types, and accents, and quickly transform in and out of them.
