Meet the Cast
- ANGELIQUE ARCHER as FRANKIE
Angelique makes her Know Theatre debut with it’s not a trip it’s a journey. Locally, she has previously been seen onstage at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. Angelique plays Frankie, the one in the friend group who looks like she has her whole life together (but on the inside she knows she doesn’t).
- A.J. BALDWIN as RAIN
We welcome A.J. back to the MainStage after her appearance as Tyra in last season’s The Twunny Fo’, which she also wrote. A.J. has also appeared at the Know as the Beacon in The Absentee (2019) and Gina in Zack (2020). A.J. plays Rain, who’s struggling after a bad breakup and hopes this road trip will fast-forward the grieving process.
- JASIMINE BOULDIN as JUNE
After appearing as Rissa in this spring’s The Twunny Fo’, Jasimine returns to the MainStage to play June, who came up with the whole idea of the journey in the first place – and who might need it more than any of the others.
- ARIEL MARY ANN as WILLIE
Ariel makes her MainStage debut with this production, although she’s been seen at the Know in as an actor in Serials! and an actor and playwright in the One-Minute Play Festival. Ariel plays Willie, who sometimes feels on the outskirts of the friend group and struggles to express how they feel, even to their closest friends.
