Directed by K.L.Storer
Sharon, in her mid-fifties, is recently divorced and needs a roommate to share her Iowa home. Robyn, also in her mid-fifties, needs a place to hide and a chance to start over. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, they encourage her own deep-seated desire to transform her life completely. A dark comedy about what it takes to re-route your life — and what happens when the wheels come off.
- 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.
- Sharon — 54 year-old woman (race/ethnicity open)
Sharon is not naive but she has lived a stereotypical, normal, Midwestern, middle-class life with little sense of adventure. She’s still a little wounded and disillusioned by her recent divorce. Her craving for adventure is awoken by the introduction of Robyn into her life.
- Robyn — 56 year-old woman (race/ethnicity open)
Robyn is a more worldly woman with a darker past who is trying to turn over a new leaf. She has a tinge of cynicism coming from hard knocks.
