BREAKDOWN

BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY: Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Stephen Adly Guirgis’ dark urban comedy explores, with both street-smart wit and disarming tenderness, the slippery nature of justice, and the grit it takes to move on. In an effort to hang on to one of Manhattan’s last great rent-stabilized apartments, ex-cop Walter “Pops” Washington does battle with a dazzling array of outlandish characters, each one a celebration of the glorious contradictions that make up human nature.

Seeking:
POPS: Male. 50-69. Black.
The patriarch of the family. A retired cop and with a lawsuit against the city. Trying to keep whatever is left of his family intact. Disclaimer: This character engages in simulated sexual intercourse and other sexual content.
JUNIOR: Male. 40-49. Black.
Pop’s son and currently dating Lulu. Trying to work his way through life as best as he can. At odds with Pops and is perhaps doing some illegal activity to make a few bucks. Stuck at the moment. Disclaimer: Character engages in sexual content and simulated marijuana smoking.
OSWALDO: Male. 25-35. Latino/Hispanic.
Junior’s ex-con friend from rehab, crashing at Pop’s apartment. A troubled young man seeking comfort wherever he can find it. Fighting to stay sober. Alienated by his own family.
LULU: Female. 20-39. Latina/Hispanic.
She is Junior’s girlfriend, also staying at Pops’ apartment; she looks to Pops to be like a father figure and holds tight to this newfound family; funny, good-hearted, and dedicated; she is street-smart, but not too bright; she may dress promiscuously and rely on her looks to get by, but she is surprisingly soulful and sweet. Disclaimer: Character engages in sexual content and simulated marijuana smoking.
CHURCH LADY: Female. 30-49. Latino/Hispanic.
Originally from Brazil, a novitiate for the convent. Is holding dark secrets that suggest a complicated history. Trying to do the right thing, whatever that means to her. Disclaimer: Character engages in simulated sexual intercourse with possible brief nudity.
