By Brian Friel
Director: TBD
First Rehearsal: 8 / 6 / 2018
Opening: 9 / 7 / 2018
Closing: 10 / 7 / 2018
The story of five unmarried sisters eking out their lives in a small village in Ireland in 1936. Their spare existence is interrupted by brief, colorful bursts of music from the radio, their only link to the romance and hope of the world at large. Brian Friel’s nostalgic Tony Award-winning tale of five unmarried sisters and a household framed by their strength and persistence, casts a ravishing spell of ritual, remembrance and the Chekhovian riddle of whether “memory” is something one has, or something one’s lost.
Agnes (Female– 30-40): Third of the 5 sisters, she is a knitter and special protector of Rose. She is quiet and contemplative.
Rose (Female– 25-35): Fourth of the 5 sisters, she too is a knitter. She is simple - suffering from a developmental disability which causes her to act in a childlike way.
Chris (Female – 25-30): Youngest of the 5 sisters, she is the mother of Michael. She is care free, wants to have fun, and is still in love with Michael’s father Gerry.
The following roles are CAST with Resident Acting Company. Performers will be considered as possible replacements should any become necessary:
Kate ROLE CAST. (Female– 35-50): The oldest of the 5 sisters, she is a school teacher and the only wage earner. The responsibility of the family weighs heavily on her.
Maggie ROLE CAST. (Female– 30-45): The second of the five sisters, she is the housekeeper. She is cheerful and carefree and hasn’t let bad luck bring her down.
Jack ROLE CAST. (Male – 50-60): Older brother of the 5 sisters, he is a missionary priest who has just returned from Africa, confused and ill. He is struggling to adjust to life at home after years away.

In small-town working-class America, where generation upon generation of fun-loving schoolchildren grow up to be saloon-loving steelworkers on a manufacturing line, it takes but one nick in the core of a community for its breaking point to be seismically tested.

Gwendolen (Female – 20-35): Algernon’s cousin and Lady Bracknell’s daughter, she is in love with Jack, whom she knows as Ernest. She is sophisticated, intellectual, cosmopolitan, and utterly pretentious. She is fixated on the name Ernest and says she will not marry a man without that name.

By Chelsea Marcantel
Director: Noah Himmelstein
First Rehearsal: 12 / 31 / 2018
Opening: 2 / 1 / 2019
Closing: 3 / 3 / 2019
When the repenting culprit from a fatal drunk driving accident seeks forgiveness from the Amish family whose two sons’ lives he claimed, faith guides them without question to welcome him into their community and their home. But as inconvenient truths from the family’s past are discovered, is their outpouring of empathy as limitless as it seems? The contradictions of a peaceful community’s capacity to heal and forgive are explored in this quietly captivating drama that invites audiences into the driver’s seat at the crossroads of redemption and regret.
Miri (Female – 20-30): Smart, plain-spoken, and independent, she left the Amish at the age of twenty and coped by building a hard shell around her heart. She is more like her mother than her father.
Ruth (Female – 15-22): Miri’s youngest sibling, and a version of Miri as she might have been as a ‘good Amish girl’, Ruth is sweet and good, but not simple. She is unintentionally funny in spite of herself. More like her father than her mother.
Eric (Male – 35-45): Unemployed, confused, and adrift in the world, he is an addict, and there is a dark core at the center of him that he’s fighting very hard to keep buried. Deeply self-centered and self-loathing, he has a hard time finishing a sentence. He comes to Jacob seeking forgiveness.
Abram (Male – 20-30): Strapping, polite, charming, and entitled, he is Miri’s childhood sweetheart and also the reason she left the Amish. He is a very charming brute; the audience should like him.
The following roles are CAST with Resident Acting Company. Performers will be considered as possible replacements should any become necessary:

Esther ROLE CAST. (Female – 45-55): Miri and Ruth’s mother and Jacob’s wife, she is a hard worker who suffers no fools and speaks her mind. She lives with a hereditary current of anger just below the surface. On the outside, she seems simple and perhaps submissive, but she has a core of steel.
Jacob ROLE CAST. (Male – 45-55): Miri and Ruth’s father and Esther’s husband, he is an open and earnest man. He believes the best way to make peace with the deaths of his sons is to actively work on forgiveness. The tragedy has made him desperate to reconcile with his
oldest daughter.
