Breakdown

Update 9/14: The following roles have now been CAST (offered and accepted). Seeking for possible replacement only:

VERONIKA
ROLE CAST. Late 30's/early 40's, black, trans woman. A hospice caregiver. Generous of spirit, unapologetically loud, will just as soon drop a bible verse on you as curse you out. Has an abiding compassion and appreciation for the good things in life that have both grown out of various personal traumas. Must be VERY comfortable physically handling others-- she's a nurse, after all.

CAROLYN
ROLE CAST. Late 60's, black, cis-woman, extremely wealthy. Was diagnosed with stage four cancer, but she was bored with life for a long before that and death's kept her waiting far longer than she'd prefer. She's not exactly a warm & fuzzy type. She has no edit button whatsoever (at least not when it comes to the servants). Intelligent, powerful, manipulative and deeply cynical, Carolyn's been shaped by a dangerous combination privilege and lack of purpose. Must be comfortable with onstage nudity.
