He is the family oddity, even from his brother, who is his polar opposite in all things. That Bitch on the Couch: (Also plays Drunk White Woman) is the only white person in this play. She’s from Westchester, New York. Incredibly wealthy, like old money white folk WASP and all that. Incredibly white. Went to Exeter Academy for high school type shit. Did cotillion and founded her boarding school’s Black Student Union. It was confusing. ______________________ “Steppenwolf Subscription Production #4” Mae: This role has already been cast. We will be casting understudies. Daughter of Dad. Lover of Mac. 32. Dad: Father of Mae. In his 60s. He has a scar that goes across his neck from one ear to the other. It looks like someone tried to cut his head off. Mac: A dude from Mae’s hometown. A few years older than Mae. Jenny: Mae’s little sister. Matthew: Mae’s little brother. Hannah: Mae’s big sister. Cowboy: Mae’s lover in her head. Like the Marlboro Man; sexy. ______________________ “Steppenwolf for Young Audiences Production #2” Tara: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; Popular (by any means necessary). Wants to be seen, always. And wants to be the one everyone looks to for trends, advice, what to think, wear, say, and do. Is pretty sharp. She's able to use reason, fact, and logic to justify her severe attacks upon other, weaker girls. Because she can. Tara uses social media for visibility. Andi: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; BF’s with Tara, though she may not like her all the time, she’s obsessively attached to her. Academically mediocre to subpar. Well-liked at school. Sliding by in all aspects of life. Distant/Absent family members. Her social clique is vital to her. On the basketball team, and serious about it, but constantly on academic probation. Likes to talk all “street” but it’s a front. Openly gay, secretly crushing on Tara. Uses social media to Search and Follow. Shauna: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; A seeker: of information, of approval, of help. Popular enough, but only at the mercy of Tara and Andi. She’s the student in class who can always find the right answer, but doesn’t always know what to do with it. Interested in knowledge. She knows how to work a system to her benefit. She’s biding her time before she can get out of school. Uses social media for its persistence and consistency. Mercedes: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; The outsider. From a different neighborhood than the other girls. Moved into this school when her school on the Westside closed and the students were siphoned into existing schools. Quiet, attempts to blend and disappear, but is unsuccessful due to the fact that she sticks out like a sore thumb. The daughter of a hugely Christian Conservative family, her manner and dress veer toward the modern Mennonite, and when she bothers to speak in school, it's to be proudly vocal for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This doesn't earn her a ton of friends, and in fact, makes her an easy target. Mercedes had an older brother who fucked up with drugs and gangs and was a fatal victim of that lifestyle. Her family turned to religion for succor in their time of grief. Her family is very protective of Mercedes, their only living child. Mercedes uses social media to spread and to hide. Erik: Mid 20’s to mid 30’s. Under 10 years in his teaching career. Idealist. Teaches English and Drama, but would much rather only be teaching Drama. In recovery through AA for about three years now. Used to be religious, but lost it as he entered adulthood. From a small town, Erik had dreams of making it as an actor in Chicago. Truly, truly loves theater. Lets his job consume his life, and this sometimes allows him to get caught up in “student drama.” ______________________ “Steppenwolf Subscription Production #5” Note: No performances on Saturday May 12 – Gala. Rosi Akintunde: This role has already been cast. We will be casting understudies.

Seeking:TAKING STEPS (LOA) By Alan Ayckbourn Producer: Barrington Stage Company, Pittsfield, MA Artistic Director: Julianne Boyd Director: Sam Buntrock 1st rehearsal: June 28, 2017 1st preview: July 20, 2017 Opening: July 23, 2017 Closing: August 5, 2017 Taking Steps is a laugh out-loud, riotously funny comedy. Elizabeth, a former dancer, will do anything to escape the overbearing clutches of her rich husband, Roland, who is poised to buy the haunted house that they live in. Meanwhile the dithering, confused Kitty, briefly reunited with her monstrously boring fiancé, will go to extraordinary lengths to elude his sleep-inducing presence. Put into the mix a chronically inarticulate solicitor and an unscrupulous builder you have one of Ayckbourn’s funniest, and most heartfelt, comedies. All actors should have great facility with physical comedy and British dialects. SEEKING: ELIZABETH: A former dancer who cannot decide whether or not to leave her husband. Intelligent, active and extremely self assured ... except when it comes to her love life. Female, Early 30s ROLAND: Elizabeth’s husband; a businessman in the bucket industry and obsessed with ownership. Confident and fond of a drink, his brash and overbearing manner masks emotional vulnerabilities. Male, 40s MARK: Elizabeth's brother. His choice and style of conversation puts others to sleep (he aspires to open a fishing tackle shop). Insecure, delicate and desperate to save his relationship to Kitty, despite her lack of interest. Male, Mid 30s KITTY: Sweet, quirky and crushingly shy, she is arrested on suspected solicitation after breaking her engagement with Mark. Consistently trapped by other people’s dreams - she neither knows what she wants, nor cares to examine her own desires. Female, Late 20s TRISTRAM: Roland’s solicitor; young, frazzled and consistently inarticulate, he unintentionally wreaks havoc on all he encounters. Male, 25-35 LESLIE: A dodgy builder on the brink of financial ruin. A wheeler dealer. He’s desperate to sell the haunted manor house to Roland despite rapidly deteriorating circumstances. Male, 30s =============== GASLIGHT (Angel Street) (LOA) By: Patrick Hamilton Producer: Barrington Stage Company, Pittsfield, MA Artistic Director: Julianne Boyd Director: TBA 1st rehearsal: September 12, 2017 1st preview: October 4, 2017 Opening: October 8, 2017 Closing: October 22, 2017 Gaslight, also called Angel Street, and made into a movie starring Ingrid Bergman, is one of the greatest psychological thrillers of all time. Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife Bella to the brink of insanity with seemingly overwhelming kindness which masks more sinister motives. While he is out, Bella has an unexpected caller: Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard who is convinced that Manningham is a homicidal maniac wanted for a murder committed fifteen years earlier in this very house. Gradually the inspector restores Bella's confidence in herself as the evidence against Manningham becomes all too clear. The current term “gaslighting” originated in this play. SEEKING: MR. JACK MANNINGHAM: Tall and handsome, he is suave, charming, and authoritative on the surface. His outward charm belies a dangerous homicidal man who will do whatever is necessary to achieve his nefarious goals. Male, 45-50 MRS. BELLA MANNINGHAM: Once bright and beautiful, she now has a haggard look and frightened air which tells of sleepless nights and constant stress. While she has been the victim of her husband's manipulation, she gradually begins to develop a sense of herself as she realizes the true nature of her husband. Female, 35-40 INSPECTOR ROUGH: An amiable, clever Police Inspector, who is also brusque and somewhat overbearing but inherently kind. Has the ability to win someone’s trust with his good nature, humor, and honesty. Male, 35-50 NANCY: A young, sexy, naive maid who thinks she can better her position by winning Mr Manningham’s affections. Not to be trusted. Female, 20-25 ELIZABETH: An amiable, observant servant, both cook and housekeeper, who is quietly loyal to Mrs. Manningham. Female, 40-50 ============= THIS (SPT) By Melissa James Gibson Producer: Barrington Stage Company, Pittsfield, MA Artistic Director: Julianne Boyd Director: Christopher Innvar 1st rehearsal: July 11, 2017 1st preview: August 3, 2017 Opening: August 6, 2017 Closing: August 27, 2017 This - At a dinner party new parents Marrell and Tom set up their recently widowed friend Jane with a charismatic French doctor. A party game takes a wrong turn and the dynamics of the group are upended forcing them to question their roles as spouses, parents, lovers and friends. With humor, great heart and brilliant use of language THIS tells a compelling story of a group of friends facing the challenges of approaching middle age in the 21st century. SEEKING: JANE: A poet, recent widow and mother to a nine year old girl. She is intelligent, kind, and insecure about how she is perceived by her friends. Still struggling with grief. Female, 38 Caucasian MARRELL: Married to Tom. An exhausted new mother, her insecurities about how her marriage compares to that of her friends contributes to her neurotic tendencies.

Female, 38 African American TOM: Married to Marrell. Being a new father he is both inspired and exhausted. Would rather focus on his woodworking than do the work that would help his marriage, which has hit a wall. He looks for solace outside the marriage. Male, Early 40s Caucasian ALAN: A mnenonist with an acerbic wit. Perhaps the most self aware of his friends. Hides his vulnerabilities with his cutting humor. Stays on the fringes of the group. Restless with his life and eager to make a change. He is both attracted to and highly jealous of Jean-Pierre. Male, 40 Jewish/Caucasian JEAN-PIERRE: Handsome, confident, sophisticated, mature, and works with Doctors with-out Borders. The perfect man to set up a single friend with. The newcomer to the group and the adult in the room. Speaks with a slight French Accent. (Has a monologue in French and should be a proficient speaker or have excellent French pronunciation). Male, Late 30s French =========== THE BIRDS (SPT) By: Conor McPherson Producer: Barrington Stage Company, Pittsfield, MA Artistic Director: Julianne Boyd Director: Julianne Boyd 1st rehearsal: May 23, 2017 1st preview: June 15, 2017 Opening: June 18, 2017 Closing: July 8, 2017 The Birds - An adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s short story, which also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film. A gripping, unsettling look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse. In an isolated cabin, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. Another refugee, Julia, arrives with some news of the outside world, but her presence also brings discord. Their survival becomes even more doubtful when paranoia takes hold—an internal threat to match that of the birds outside. SEEKING DIANE: A novelist who is keeping a record of the deteriorating world in her diary. She appears to be sweet, lonely and clear-headed, but in reality she has great hidden strength and determination, especially when it comes to protecting her territory, which includes NAT. The matriarch and leader of the group. Female, 40s-50s JULIA: (Role CAST) A seemingly sweet young woman who has been involved in previous dubious circumstances in order to survive. Brave and tenacious, she is also attracted to NAT, which ruins the equilibrium of the threesome. Female, Early 20s NAT: (Role CAST) Vulnerable and prone to psychological breaks, due to a messy family break-up, he does not have the clearest head in a crisis. However, he is the only one who believes that kindness can exist in the face of all of the dangers, both internal and external. Male, 40s/50’s TIERNEY: An unkempt, gruff farmer who’s been watching NAT and DIANE from across a lake and understands more than the others of their situation. He is living out the crisis with the birds by himself with a stockpile sleeping pills and other drugs. An imposing figure and potential threat to the group, he is in reality a lonely man reaching out to Diane for companionship, but is rebuffed. Male, 50s
