In suburban Massachusetts in the mid-1980’s, thirty-something-year-old Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job and still lives at home with her hypochondriac mother. She started college but never finished, and has settled into a life that doesn’t offer much hope for the future. But when a new friendship at work and a chance flirtation with an old classmate give her hope for the possibility of change, she dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life. This is a play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.
- Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
- A résumé and headshot are not required but are appreciated.
- Please provide a list of all known conflicts between March 5 & May 5, 2019
NOTE: This play takes place in a middle-class suburb of Boston. Dialect will be taught, so if cast you can expect to spend time working dialect at rehearsal and when learning lines. This is very important to the play. (You are most welcome to give it a shot at auditions!)
- Josephine (Jo):
somewhere around mid-30’s or so
- Josephine’s co-worker Donny:
late 30’s, a butcher
