Description: “As Much As I Can” is an immersive experience inviting audiences into the lives of four Black gay men as they explore complex relationships to faith, family, community and, ultimately, themselves.
Special Note: We are seeking actors who are singers, movers/dancers, and have experience in devised/immersive theatre.
Male, 20 - 30, African American. Gay, the hero of the play. Struggling to come to terms with his recent HIV-positive diagnosis. Sweet guy with a big heart who climbs a mountain of self-discovery by the play's end.
Male, 20 - 30, African American. Gay, George’s lover, HIV-positive. Closeted to his family and his community, struggles with acceptance. An extremely complex character — facing tremendous turmoil. Delivers gut-punching monologues.
Male, 20 - 30, African American. Gay, college student, receives a HIV-negative diagnosis in the beginning of the play. Funny but unexpectedly wise. Our "how to navigate intimacy" hero. Blows through the 4th wall throughout the script.
Male, 30 - 70, African American. A man of stature in the community, delivers a long sermon. Seeking an actor adept with language who has tremendous poise and gravitas.
Male, 30 - 70, Caucasian. George’s doctor, delivers his HIV-positive diagnosis. Missed the empathy bus at the beginning but brings it home at the end.
Female, 20 - 30, African American. Straight. A wise ass who is fiercely loyal to her friends. For George she feels like family. Has her own struggles and is trying to find her next big thing.
Female, 40 - 60, African American. Marcus’ mother, compassionate yet overbearing. Wants the best for her son but doesn't totally understand him. Represents the broader societal context. Has critical monologue that defines a theme.
Female, 40 - 60, African American. Delius’ mother, struggles with acceptance of her son and of herself. Wishes things were different and struggles to connect with Delius.
