BREAKDOWN

SYNOPSIS:
In 1828, 17-year-old Ann Harvey saves 160 Irish immigrants from a wreck off of Newfoundland’s Shipwreck Coast, making her an instant hero. Almost 200 years later, the Harvey family homestead has become the Shipwreck Inn, where present-day proprietress Ann Harvey attempts to leave her own mark (and attract some American customers) with a tourist blog. Her nephew Joe-L, on the other hand, would do anything to leave his hometown and start a new life somewhere else. A time-shifting memory house for all those lost at sea, this Eugene O’Neill National Playwrights Festival finalist reminds us that even in the darkest moment, something can happen that changes everything.
SEEKING:

Joe-L
Male. Actor 18+ who can read teens, biracial. He is a dark poet with a Tumblr blog, a renegade, forever on the brink of graduating high school but won’t do the last thing he needs to finish. He’s an addict who is stuck in an island town and all he wants is to get out. A party boy fuck-up whose anger about his mother’s suicide comes in waves that he drowns out with booze. Not a survivor. Actor should prepare sides with a Newfie accent. NOTE: Actors of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

Edna/ Shipwreck Ann/Sid the American
Female. Actor 18+ who can read teens.

As Edna-Joe-L’s teenage girlfriend. She is very excited about her AA recovery and is trying to convert Joe-L. She is determined to keep her goth edge but also do the right next thing if she can figure out what it is. She is learning how to survive addiction, sudden loss, and a strange home life. Actor should prepare sides with Newfie accent.

As Shipwreck Ann-17 year old Ann Harvey saved 161 Irish survivors from the wreck of the Despatch in 1828 off the coast of Newfoundland. Determined,strong and practical. She has an edge and carries her power in her body and in her voice. Hardened by life along the coast . Actor should prepare sides with an Irish accent.

As Sid the American- Funny, gregarious, loud-and-proud queer cis woman from NYC. Lots of cultural blind spots. Very sure of her beliefs and her place in the world. Terrible at listening, taking the temperature of the room or reading between the lines.

Mary McCauley/Reika
Female, 30’s to 40’s, any ethnicity.

As Mary McCauley- An Irish survivor of the Despatch who Shipwreck Ann nurses back to health in her home. A haunting beauty, and a believer of Celtic pagan rituals and superstitions. She sees and hears magic and dark power everywhere She can be quiet as a whisper and shriek like a banshee. She will do anything to survive. Actor should prepare sides with an Irish accent.

As Reika the American- Curious. Driven. Probably the smartest person in the room but lost in reflection and dreaming. She is of mixed race. She identifies as a woman of color and understands race as a cultural construct – She is interested in her Irish roots. What she cares about is getting as close to the place of the shipwreck, and to Mary, as possible.

NOTE: South Asian and Middle Eastern actors strongly encouraged to submit.
