SEEKING:

Orville Wright: (Female) 20s - early 30s. Excellent singer. This character displays drive and determination without allowing to give up on their dream. Energetic and focused.

Katherine Wright: (Female),20s-30s. The Wright brother’s sister Katherine was a young woman with a career as a high school teacher. Independent and bright, Katherine was an integral part of the Wright brothers’ achievements contributing many ideas and most of her career earnings to their endeavors. She is the family peacekeeper, voice of reason, and motherly.

Samuel Langley: (Male or Female), 30s–50s-Langley was a scientist, a bureaucrat, and a politician. In this play Langley’s Achilles’ heel is his ego.

Harim Maxim/Conductor/Ensemble: 20s–early 40s. Though The ensemble characters were all serious inventors and engineers, they are depicted in this play with humor.
