Welcome to Los Angeles, California, where the weather is always nice, and the future looks bright — mostly. We visit the trendy Silver Lake hills of L.A. on a warm November evening, on the Day of the Dead. Calder is a promising writer/director, and his wife Abigail is an actor still waiting for her big break. An old school buddy of Calder’s visits, as does his agent, and Abigail’s friend Molly — who stops over to read Tarot cards. The evening weighs in on loyalty, principles, climate trauma, carbon footprints, the fear of having children, and the fate of humankind.

Casting Requirements:

  • 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 Oct 16 and Dec 15, 2019.

  • Abigail: Female – 35–40-ish*, Calder’s wife, an actor

  • Molly: Female – 30-45-ish*, Abigail’s friend and a fortune-teller

The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop, in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher,” assemble for a backer’s audition of their new show at an exclusive Westchester estate. But the infamous “Slasher” reappears and strikes again—and again.  As the composer, lyricist, actors and director prepare their performance, a blizzard cuts off any possibility of leaving. Bodies start to drop in plain sight, and the bumbling police inspector who snowshoes in to investigate helps solve the mystery in the nick of time and the “Slasher” is ultimately unmasked.

Character breakdowns:

Character ages range from early 20’s to late 40’s, and can be of any ethnicity. The goal is to represent the array of women from varying social/economic backgrounds and cultural experiences who were able to bond over their love of flying.

  • Virginia: Good natured, empathetic observer who takes strength from her faith
  • Edith: Blunt, quick-witted, hot shot pilot whose hard shell protects a soft center
  • Norma Jean: Strong, confident, leader with a natural grace and Southern charm
  • Rosalie: Soft spoken, self-doubting youngster with big dreams of adventure
  • Alice: The repressed housewife who is able to liberate herself through flying
  • Carol: The energetic optimist who’s larger-than-life personality makes up for her short stature
  • Mildred: Brassy girl who likes to generate drama, especially if it means self-gain. She’s a woman of few loyalties
  • Mrs. Deaton: The government-employed den mother of the WASPs
  • Ziggie: The female pilot instructor hired to train the recruits. Their safety is her top concern. Hard edged. Tough. A rare woman
