HURRICANE DIANE

Director: Jenny Koons
Location: Virginia Wimberly Theatre, LORT B
First Rehearsal: Tuesday, July 27, 2021
Tech Begins: Saturday, August 21, 2021
First Preview: Friday, August 27, 2021
Opening: Wednesday, September 1, 2021
Closing: Sunday, September 26, 2021
Director’s Note: Our process will include daily group warm-ups and generative world/character-building exercises. All performers will share leadership of exercises and contribute to an ensemble-based practice rooted in play, with emphasis on physicality and generative movement. It may or may not include: dancing to Rihanna, creating silent sketches of how characters clean their kitchens, choreographing comedic bits with household appliances, or learning social dances from TikTok.
SEEKING THE FOLLOWING:
DIANE - character’s pronouns: she/her, 30s-40s, any race/ethnicity. A demigod—a modern-day Dionysus with tons of confidence. Diane is a charm factory, with that combination of swagger and stillness. She moves easily, casually. Diane, disguised as a landscaper, is on a mission to heal the Earth and restore it to its natural abundance.
CAROL FLEISCHER - character’s pronouns: she/her, 39, white. A neat and tidy woman who likes things crisp, clean, organized, and exactly as they should be. Lover of shiny gardening magazines and the status quo. Stubborn and persistent. She’s the most skeptical of and resistant to Diane’s persuasions.
PAM ANNUNZIATA - character’s pronouns: she/her, 40s, white. A “full blood Italian, both sides” Protective and loyal to her family and neighbors. Blunt and forthright. She’s bold and an open book, but she has an intuitive side that makes her cautious of Diane.
RENEE SHAPIRO-EPPS - character’s pronouns: she/her, 40s, Black, Indigenous, Person of Color. Confident, self-assured, and very knowledgeable about plants and gardening. Used to live on a permaculture commune where she grew her own food, but now finds herself unfulfilled by her successful career and suburban life. Tends to casually name-drop her one and only college lesbian relationship.
BETH WANN - character’s pronouns: she/her, 30s, white. A gentle, kind, and sincere woman who has an untapped wildness tucked deep inside her. Unfulfilled, vulnerable, and a little lost after her husband has recently left her. Beth is looking for connection with her neighbors. She gives over willingly to Diane.
**For HURRICANE DIANE, although pronouns are defined in the text, we welcome actors of any gender expression to audition.

First Preview: Friday, October 15, 2021
Opening: Wednesday, October 20, 2021
Closing: Sunday, November 14, 2021
SEEKING THE FOLLOWING:
ELIZABETH SAWYER - character’s pronouns: she/her, 40s-60s, any race/ethnicity. An outcast. People believe she’s a witch and therefore shun her and treat her poorly. Skeptical of Scratch. Isn’t quick to let people in. Smart and quick wit. Elizabeth has hope that the world could be better if we just burn it all down and start over.
SCRATCH - character’s pronouns: he/him, 25-35, any race/ethnicity. The devil. Charming and a great conversationalist. Persistent. Artfully manipulative. Scratch is more adept at negotiating with Cuddy and Frank than with Elizabeth. He has chosen to embody the form of a young man because he believes “young men will generally succeed.”
SIR ARTHUR BANKS - character’s pronouns: he/him, 50s-60s, any race/ethnicity. A wealthy and powerful man looking for a suitable heir to continue his legacy. Commanding. Has taken a liking to Frank as a possible heir. He secretly worries about his son, Cuddy, and how to guide him. His softer, more vulnerable side emerges when he talks to the portrait of his late wife.
CUDDY BANKS - character’s pronouns: he/him, 25-35, any race/ethnicity. Sir Arthur’s son, painfully shy, a morris-dancer. He is secretly in love with Frank (and also in hate.) Tends to perform his masculinity in front of his father and Frank. Easily swayed by Scratch.
FRANK - character’s pronouns: he/him, 25-35, any race/ethnicity. A confident and successful young man, charming and ruthless. He’s secretly married to Winnifred but will leave her if it means inheriting Sir Arthur’s inheritance. His ambition knows no bounds.
WINNIFRED - character’s pronouns: she/her, 25-35, any race/ethnicity. Resigned and pragmatic, secretly married to Frank. Became Sir Arthur’s servant to be in closer proximity to Frank. Must keep her composure when catering to Sir Arthur as Frank schmoozes with Sir Arthur. Frank, who she deeply loves, is also a ticket to a life outside of servitude. She needs Frank to stop playing games.
**For WITCH, although pronouns are defined in the text, we welcome actors of any gender expression to audition. This production also contains hand-to-hand violence and intimacy. There will be an intimacy coach and fight choreographer on the production.
