AUDITION ADDRESS: Metro Theatre, 1370 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver

SHOW RUNS: January 20 to February 11, 2017


Isabel is a modern young woman who lives alone and works in a book shop. When she is not pining after a handsome author, she is visiting her grandmother (Bubbie) in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. This irascible granny and her friend the matchmaker have found a “good catch” for Isabel, whose initial reluctance gives way to a blossoming romance when she finally meets Sam, the pickle vendor as the end of the play offers a new beginning.

Characters Needed

2 – male; 3 – female

BUBBIE: a feisty, sharp-witted woman in her eighties, who immigrated to the US as a young girl and has lived ever since in the lower east side of New York City

ISABELLE: ‘Izzy’ Grossman, her grand-daughter, in her late twenties, a bookish dreamer

HANNAH: a professional matchmaker, a wheeler-dealer, in her fifties

TYLER: a well-known fiction writer; handsome; exceedingly charming and self-involved, in his early forties

SAM: a pickleman and poet; an inhabitant of the lower east side, gentle, intuitive, appealing, wise beyond his years, in his early thirties

Requirements: Auditions will be cold readings from the script; the director will choose which scenes the group will read.

Notes: This is a NON-EQUITY production. People will be seen on a first come/first served basis, but be prepared that you may have to sit around and wait as you may be needed to read opposite someone else who is auditioning.
