Electric and darkly comic portrayal of a troubled working-class family in New Britain, CT. Travis visits his parents' home to check on his family, only to find himself sucked into intractable conflicts and a whole household on the verge of implosion.

Seeking:

Margaret:

AVAILABLE ROLE. 50s. Nursing tech, Bronx-born. Hard-working, hard-bitten and bitter. Has seen it all. Dotes on her two sons and two cats, but can’t stand to be in the same room as her husband. As loving as she is fierce and determined, and as capable of enabling as tearing down.

Matt:

AVAILABLE ROLE. 30s. Margaret’s younger son. Impossibly cheerful and conflict-avoiding, on top of true desperation. Pathological liar with a crippling gambling addiction which is leading him unwillingly into petty crime. He’s also attempting to leave his wife for a new (married) woman.

Yvette:

AVAILABLE ROLE. 30s, Latina. Strong, no BS woman, married to a pot dealer next door. Devoted to her family and kids, but has never gotten over Travis, who was her high school sweetheart.


The following three roles are cast (i.e. offers made and accepted). Auditioning performers will be considered as possible replacements, should any become necessary.


Travis:

CAST. 30s. Margaret’s elder son. Former marine. Lives in NYC, and alternates odd jobs with periods of travel. Pill-taker and womanizer, unable to form real relationships. Has a strong sense of obligation to his family, and especially his brother Matt, but would rather be anywhere else.

Bill:

CAST. 50s. Margaret’s husband. General contractor. His moods oscillate wildly between friendly bystander and violent rage-aholic. Has a girlfriend on the side who has him going to anger- management meetings. Pines for bygone days of picket fences, unlocked doors, and a world without ethnic minorities.

Sarah:

CAST. 30s. Margaret’s daughter. Nurse. Relatively successful, and the most stable and level-headed in the family. Married, and somewhat removed from the madness. Has six children, going on seven.
