Breakdown

Seeking members of Actors’ Equity and nonunion actors. Performers of all ethnic and racial background are encouraged to attend.

SUSAN – 20s/30s – A vivacious, charming, and determined young

woman. In the last year she has lost her eyesight in a car accident and

met and married Sam. She refuses to let her eyesight loss ruin her life.

Susan is quick to make a sarcastic barb yet has a warm and welcoming

disposition.

MIKE – 30s/40s – A charming, handsome, small-time con artist. He has

a soul and a conscience, which he has to keep in check when working a

job.

SAM – 30s – A former marine, Sam is now a photographer. He takes his

work and Susan’s rehabilitation seriously. A solemn man, he also has a

playful streak.

CARLINO – 30s/40s – Quite rough around the edges and a bit sloppy, he

is the brawn of the operation. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty.

Carlino is recently out of prison but has not lost his edge in a long con

game.

ROAT – 30s/40s - A true sociopath. He does not care who he hurts in his

pursuits. He trusts no one nor should anyone trust him. He has nerves

of steel. He role-plays as Harry Roat Senior, a 70 year old eccentric man

and Harry Roat Junior, his henpecked and mild-mannered son. It is

chilling how thoroughly he morphs into these roles.

GLORIA – 12-14 – A child desperate to be seen as a woman. She goes

from bitch to helpful in seconds flat. With a rough home life she sees

Susan as both a punching bag and a surrogate mother.


Preparation

Please bring two resumes and headshots. AEA members should bring proof of Equity membership. EMC actors will also be seen. Nonunion actors are welcome and encouraged to attend. Actors should be 18 years+, with the exception of Gloria audtioners.
