BREAKDOWN

Two lost souls come together under most unusual circumstances in this deeply insightful and charmingly funny world premiere. Surrounded by painfully cheerful co-workers, Bari is deeply cynical and woefully underemployed working at a small-town fulfillment center. After an unexpected and unexplainable turn of events, Bari finds herself on an enlightening new path. When she meets Mike, a man who makes art out of garbage, it’s Bari’s turn to pull another out of the darkness. Be Here Now asks what we are willing to do for love and happiness and to create meaning in our lives.
SEEKING:
BARI
(Female, 40s- mid 50s) Nihilistic, misanthropic, and chronically depressed. Desperately needs to complete her dissertation in Nihilism, so she can get back to NYC. She’s too good for her tiny childhood home in upstate NY, she’s too good for the fulfillment center where she’s working, she’s too good for everybody. But her recurring headaches begin manifesting strange episodes of ecstatic, joyful, almost religious experiences, and she starts to see everything anew.

The actress should be sharp, funny, intellectual, and embody Bari as an outsider in this small town.

PATTY
(Female, 40s-60s) Brash, bossy, loud, has the wisdom of experience but not much formal education. Has lived in East Cooperville all her life. Doesn't hide her opinions about things. A strong comedienne with mama bear vibes is needed here.
LUANNE
(Female, 20s) Patty's niece. Comedically innocent and unpolished in a way that is not sophisticated but has lots of heart. Has never been outside of East Cooperville.
MIKE
(Male 40s-60s) Patty's cousin. Has been living on the streets of NY. A man with a tragic past who only finds peace when he is building houses out of found objects. Out of practice when it comes to "normal" social interaction. A sweet, deeply good person, who has had to put up strict boundaries to protect himself. Warmly enthusiastic about his passions: his work, vegetables, his pet crow.
