Seeking:Young Man 2/Jason #1/Paul Wilcox/Doorman: Male, 18+, to play multiple roles, including: Jason #1 – high school science teacher, bookish and sweetly nerdy. The kind of person who doesn’t speak at parties until they’ve had a couple of drinks and then you can’t shut them up. He has the ability to look at an argument from every possible angle. He is a steady ship on increasingly stormy seas. He often takes on the role of peacemaker. Paul Wilcox, a real estate developer, the son of Henry Wilcox; sharp, direct, caustic, rude—a blunt instrument. Bulldozes anything in his way whether it’s obstacles, buildings, or people. Doorman, been on the job way too long, more interested in his sandwich and his copy of the Post than in doing his job. Young Man 3/Young Henry/Tucker: Male, 18-29, to play multiple roles, including: Young Henry, appears as a memory or the shadow of the adult Henry Wilcox. Traumatized by what he witnesses during the mid-1980’s, at the start of the AIDS epidemic, he moves through the world cautiously, with his emotional guard resolutely up. The only person who can pierce his defenses is Young Walter, with whom he has fallen hopelessly, desperately in love. Tucker proudly entitled trust fund kid who creates “false art”— gorgeous, photorealistic paintings depict the world not as it is but rather as people want it to seem which he then ritualistically destroys. Self-satisfied and preening, a case study in millennial narcissism—he is a young man whose education far exceeds his intelligence. He’s also deliciously sexy and undeniably fun to be around. Young Man 4/Young Walter/Clinic Worker: Male, 18-29, to play multiple roles, including: Young Walter appears as a memory or the shadow of the adult Walter Poole. We also encounter him at the start of the AIDS epidemic. A deeply feeling, intensely loyal, innately principled young man. Outwardly, he is as gentle as a cherry blossom. Inwardly, he’s steel-spined and indestructible. Whereas the epidemic almost crushes Henry, it reveals Young Walter’s true strength and resolve. Clinic Worker, overworked and underpaid, his schedule precludes him from being overly compassionate with his patients He’s not unkind—in fact, he got into this line of work because he wants to help people, but we meet him on a bad day and his bedside manner has been sacrificed for efficiency. Young Man 5/Charles Wilcox/Toby's Agent/Toby's Dealer: Male, 18-29, to play multiple roles, including: Charles Wilcox real estate developer, the son of Henry Wilcox; far less of a blunt instrument than his brother, Charles has inherited his father’s business acumen and savvy; but more importantly, as a young man raised by Walter Poole, he is also possessed of compassion and a surprising depth of feeling. If Paul is Henry’s son, Charles is Walter’s. Toby's Agent budding young power agent at one of the big agencies. Thrives on protein shakes and hot yoga. Not without compassion for Toby but increasingly frustrated by his client’s erratic behavior. Knows how to gently pet with one hand and cut throats with the other. Toby's Dealer a full-time summer resident at the Fire Island Pines. Constantly speedo-clad, constantly on call and constantly horny. He can get you anything (and anyone) you want. Young Man 6/Tristan: Male, 25-39, as Tristan an ER physician who spends his days dealing with trauma of all kinds. He is calm under pressure and knows how to diffuse the most volatile situations. He can be droll and wickedly funny when he wants to (and he often does). He can also expertly dissect thorny, seemingly impossible problems with reasoned, blazingly intelligent thinking. His observations are never like speeches—instead, they are examples of a dazzling mind at work, working out problems in real time. Young Man 7/Jasper: 25-39, as Jasper, a “social justice entrepreneur,” who works in the political realm as a movement influencer. He is wickedly smart if also a little selfrighteous and blind to his own privilege. He has a good heart and good intentions. When we meet him, he’s an amiable doofus with boyish charm who hasn’t really matured past the age of 22, which is the average age of most of his boyfriends. The 2016 election hardens him in unhealthy ways. He becomes prone to pronouncements over analysis and develops an ideological rigidity and inflexibility that causes his relationships to fracture. Young Man 8/Jason #2: Male, 18-39, as Jason #2, a first-grade teacher who often treats the world as if it were his classroom. Big-hearted, joyful, and deliriously idiosyncratic. Jason will often hijack a serious conversation with his decidedly out-of-the box thinking. The fact that he is able to coherently argue his somewhat baffling points of view is evidence not only of his fertile imagination but also his rock-solid intellect. Jason is a perceptive and compassionate man who possesses the ability to understand the emotional stakes of any situation—eventually.
