Synopsis – Bob and Jeff have been living together in a relatively happy relationship for about 10 years, but a couple of issues have  arisen that threaten them. Jeff is the only child of a single parent and feels, very badly, the lack of a family.  Bob has never ‘come out” to his strong-willed mother.

They are returning from a trip to Greece that was meant to “work out” their problems, but that has not ” worked out”, at all. Into the mix comes Bob’s family; his 2 sisters, Lois and Nona.; his mother Vera,  and his 2 brothers-in-law Bill and Arthur.

Manchester English accents a must.

Characters Needed

1female – 1 male

Bob, age – 35- 50,  happy within himself and his living arrangements, but aware (to a degree) that he is living a lie.This character is not only an intrinsic part of the story, he also speaks directly to the audience in the role of a  Narrator.

Nona, age 40-50, begins the play in a depressed state as her husband has run off with a pharmacist from “Boots”. When he returns at the end of Act 1, she is overjoyed.

Requirements: Auditions will be cold readings from the script; the director will choose which scenes the group will read. No appointment necessary.

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.
