As standby for the role of ALEXANDRA (which has already been CAST – Estelle Parsons) Female, 70s. An artistic and vital life force, she is combatting the inevitability of aging and is desperately trying to maintain her independence and dignity despite the decline of her mental and physical capacities. She still sees herself as the twenty-something freewheeling bohemian she was and is still sharp, guarded and ready for a fight. Warm, sensitive, intelligent and funny underneath a cantankerous hard outer shell; she has barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone to take a stand.
As standby for the role of CHRIS (which has already been CAST – Stephen Spinella)
Male, late 40s-50s. Alexandra’s son. A lost soul still looking to find meaning and purpose in his life. A gay New Age drifter; a desert rat who has been estranged from the family and living in New Mexico. Very much his mother’s son, he is artistic, funny, highly sensitive and caring. Just as combative as Alexandra, he is good with words and not one to easily back down. He has always seen himself as the outcast black sheep and is looking to finally do something impactful in his life.
