Currently seeking:

RICHARD
he/him/his, any ethnicity, early 40s. Richard is the paternal figure in the family. He is capricious and has a history of putting his needs first. Shortly after losing his wife and becoming a single parent, he is desperately attempting to create a self-determined easier world for his children to live in. All the while, he is faced with his own mortality as he begins to succumb to a lingering illness. As a result, he governs with a no-nonsense strictness to shield his post-diagnosis sadness. With that being said, Richard loves his family deeply and only wants what is best for them.

JANE
she/her/hers, any ethnicity, mid to late 30s. Jane and Richard are sister and brother. After growing up feeling inferior, Jane moved to a larger city and gradually found refuge there. She is reserved, pragmatic, and mindful, with a wry sense of humor. After years of non-communication with her family, she has returned home and is surprised to learn her brother’s condition is worse than he originally stated. As her relationship with her niece and nephew develop, we discover that Jane is wiser than she lets on, and harbors a strong desire to connect and communicate.
DICK JR.
he/him/his, any ethnicity, [to play] teens. Dick Jr. is the oldest child. He is excitable, fickle, determined; his idea of the world unpolished, milky, an endless canvas. After the death of his mother, he processes the loss by becoming consumed with keeping her memory alive, often wearing her clothes and accessories as part of this attempt. His desperation and perpetual state of grieving contributes to a tempestuous relationship with everyone around him. With his world already on shaky grounds, he embarks upon a grand expedition in search of what he’s been missing.

SALLY
she/her/hers, any ethnicity, d/Deaf, [to play] pre-teens. Sally is the youngest child. Complying with her father’s insistence, she is learning how to speak
verbal English. Sally is compassionate, clever, has a wicked sense of humor, a better lens on her surroundings than her family, and possesses a learned desire to please. The introduction to her Aunt Jane provides her with the tools to fully realize her potential to exist without altering herself to fit into anyone’s expectations. Actor who ared/Deaf and bilingual in ASL and English are strongly encouraged to audition for this role.

SPOT
he/him/his, any ethnicity, a dog, 20s [human years]. Spot is the family dog. He is a traditionalist, loyal, friendly, encouraging, and chatty. An observant, eager pup who tries his best to do what he thinks is right. His lens on the world is that of someone only a few feet off the ground, but he is more human than our average canine. Spot has an especially close relationship with Sally. Actively seeking an actor with dance or movement experience.

MOTHER
she/her/hers, any ethnicity, late 30s. Mother is an idea. Prior to, she existed on earth as the maternal figure in the family. Her death prompted an intense period of grieving for her husband and children. When she appears, she often displays the embodiment of perfect maternal instincts; she has a knack for saying all the right things at the right time (whether or not she knows it’s in fact the right thing to say), and asking very thoughtful questions. While she doesn’t always appear when summoned, she is also not impossible to locate on your own terms if you put your back into it
