Closing: 12/3/17. Possible Extension: 12/17/17 It is 1958, and New York City is in the midst of a major building boom; a four-lane highway is planned for the heart of Washington Square; Carnegie Hall is designated for demolition; entire neighborhoods on the West Side are leveled to make room for a new “palace of art.” And a young Joe Papp and his colleagues face betrayals, self-inflicted wounds and anger from the city’s powerful elite as they continue their free Shakespeare productions in Central Park. From the creator of the most celebrated family plays of the last decade, comes a drama about a different kind of family – one held together by the simple and incredibly complicated belief that the theater, and the city, belongs to all of us.

SEEKING A NINE MEMBER COMPANY, ROLES TBD _____________ OFFICE HOUR Written by Julia Cho Directed by Neel Keller First Rehearsal: 9/12/17. First performance: 10/17/17. Closing: 12/03/17. Possible Extension: 12/17/17 On a college campus a student and a teacher face off during her office hour. He has been behaving bizarrely in class and she is determined to discover the root of his anger and apparent unhappiness. He sits silently at the back of the classroom, exuding malevolence and intimidating both his fellow students and instructors. The writing assignments he turns in are violent, ugly and artless. His behavior is freaking everyone out. Is he disturbed or maybe dangerous? Or is he a frightened and lost young man asking for help? GINA: Korean-American. 30 - 40. A creative writing professor who, like many of her colleagues, is teaching as a means to create space for her own creativity. But even as she teaches others she struggles with enormous ambivalence towards her writing which is born of an excruciatingly slow and painful process. She recognizes much of herself in Dennis and she tries to persuade him to open up despite his hostility and resistance. Unlike her colleagues she refuses to give up on him although their encounters are unsettling and possibly even dangerous. She is empathic, open and emotionally available but in the end, through Dennis’ silence which she talks to fill, she learns more about herself than she ever learns about him. DENNIS: Korean-American. 20’s, a college freshman. A vulnerable, awkward young man who has discovered the enormous and unsettling power of silence. He is perhaps unaware of how imposing and, ultimately threatening his behavior is to those he encounters. An outsider and oddball, painfully ignored by his contemporaries. He is plagued by the teenage trifecta of bad skin, shyness and insecurity. He hides behind a baseball cap and sun glasses and channels his anger into writing violent, deeply disturbing diatribes. When he finally does speak to Gina he is surprisingly empathic. This is a role for an actor who has great physical command and who can reveal character through physicality as much as through language. DAVID: Caucasian. 30’s. He teaches writing for stage and screen. He’s a bit of a hipster. The kind of professor that the kids love and want to hang out with. He’s just biding his time in academia until his Institutional Off-Broadway Group Auditions 2017 - NYC EPA (dramatic day) own screenwriting career takes off. He prides himself on the relaxed vibe in his classroom and is angry that this kid messes with it. He’s not so interested in why Dennis behaves the way he does and flunks him because of the poor quality of his writing. He’s not without compassion he just believes in facing the issue head on. What he sees is a kid that’s trouble not a troubled kid. GENEVIEVE: Early 30’s. Teaches poetry. Her race should be different and distinct from the three roles listed above. She is the first to encounter Dennis in her Intro to Poetry class. She finds his behavior immediately troubling. Although she is scared for herself and for her students she is compassionate and immediately strategizes about ways of getting past the terrifying wall he has erected around himself. The effort is exhausting and she’s ultimately unable to get through to him. She is left feeling angry, frustrated and completely uncertain how to proceed but much relieved that she can now hand the problem on to Gina. ___________ TINY BEAUTFUL THINGS Based on the book by Cheryl Strayed Adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos Directed by Thomas Kail First Rehearsal: 9/1/17.

Possible Extension: 12/3/17 Institutional Off-Broadway Group Auditions 2017 - NYC EPA (dramatic day) OEDIPUS EL REY is an electric new adaptation of Sophocles’ classic tale of ambition, desire, destiny, and tragedy. Set in contemporary California, and traveling from California State Prison, up Highway 99 to Los Angeles, it tells the story of Oedipus, a young man newly released from prison, whose attempts to make his way in the world—which has always kept him on the sidelines—set off a sequence of events that are as tragic as they are inevitable. OEDIPUS/CORO: Early 20’s. Male. Latino. PLEASE NOTE: This role requires nudity. Incarcerated as a teen, he has recently been released from prison. At first he is determined to find a new town and a new life, but he is inescapably drawn back to the streets of LA, where all his troubles began. Ambitious, stubborn, headstrong.

Must be comfortable with movement and working in a physical style. TIRESIAS/CORO: Late 40’s – 50’s. Male. Latino. Oedipus’s adoptive father. A blind mystic. When Oedipus was sent to prison, Tiresias committed a crime so that he could be imprisoned alongside his son. Wise, patient, thoughtful.

Oedipus’s biological mother, although she believes her son to be dead. Beautiful, sensual, sexy.

After her husband’s death she becomes the de-facto leader of the gang. She has the savvy and intelligence to run a successful business, but knows in this ruthless and cutthroat world, lacking a male protector makes her a vulnerable target. CREON/CORO: Late 30’s – early 40’s. Male. Latino. Jocasta’s brother, eager to be next in line for the throne. He has the ambition, intelligence, and the desire to be a leader, but lacks the charisma to rally people behind him.

Performs: 6/1/18- 8/8/18 ROLES AVAILABLE: EZRA: Mid to late 30s. Caucasian. Gay. Smart. Like his best friend Jules, he is acerbically funny but has an endearing, vulnerable center. He occasionally slides –- sometimes by accident, sometimes by design -- into politically incorrect territory. A monogamist, a romantic. JULES: Short for Julia. Late 30s. Married to Pam. Jules is abrasive but endearing, extremely smart, hyper-verbal, irreverent. She likes to hold forth. A bit of a bull in a china shop, she sometimes stomps on her own feet. But at her core she’s filled with love of other people and the need to be accepted. Institutional Off-Broadway Group Auditions 2017 - NYC EPA (dramatic day) Could be British, but not necessarily. HENRY: Late 30s. Trans Male. Ezra’s best friend from childhood. Smart, funny, verbal, sexually confident. Masculine (he passes as a cis male, something he’s proud of). A bit of a lothario, but not without sensitivity – an excellent friend and listener. Would like to start a family. MYNA: Mid 20s. Henry’s girlfriend. Pretty, feminine, earnest, eager, ethically grounded. She has an ingenuous, faintly airhead-y affect that makes it harder to see that she’s actually emotionally mature for her young age. She gets frustrated by people’s assumptions that she’s an intellectual lightweight. Roles CAST: CHRIS: Role CAST. Mid 30s. African-American. Gay. From a rich suburban family. Funny and smart, but a bit less eager for attention than his husband Ezra. A bit more mild-mannered, more empathic. He’d really like to have kids. Chris is (mostly) accustomed to the hiccups of insensitivity that he experiences while being surrounded by his Caucasian friends. CAST PAM: Role CAST. 40. Married to Jules. Solid, wise, taciturn. Morally grounded, un-neurotic. An extremely good listener. Successful in business and in momhood. A little scary when she needs to be. CAST =============
