SEEKING

An ensemble of excellent actors to play the following roles:

JOE KELLER (male-identifying, White, 50’s-60’s)
“Keller is nearing sixty. A heavy man of stolid mind and build, a businessman these many years, but with the imprint of the machine-shop worker and boss still upon him. When he reads, when he speaks, when he listens, it is with the terrible concentration of the uneducated man for whom there is still wonder in many commonly known things, a man whose judgments must be dredged out of experience and a peasant-like common sense. A man among men.” Joe was exonerated after being charged with knowingly shipping defective aircraft engine cylinder heads from his factory to the military during World War II, causing the deaths of 21 pilots. For over three years he has placed the blame on his partner and former neighbor, Steve Deever, although he himself committed the crime. When the truth comes out, Joe justifies his actions by claiming that he did it for his family.

KATE KELLER (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, mid-40’s-mid-60’s)
She is in her early fifties, a woman of uncontrolled inspirations and an overwhelming capacity for love.Kate knows that Joe is guilty but lives in denial while mourning for her older son Larry, who has been “missing in action” for three years. She refuses to believe that Larry is dead and maintains that Ann Deever — who returns for a visit at the request of Larry’s brother Chris — is still “Larry’s girl” and believes that he is coming back.

CHRIS KELLER (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s)
He is thirty-two; like his father, solidly built, a listener. A man capable of immense affection and loyalty.Chris returned home from World War II two years before the play begins, disturbed by the realization that the world was continuing as if nothing had happened. He has summoned Ann Deever to the Keller house to ask for her hand in marriage, but they’re faced with the obstacle of Kate’s unreasonable conviction that Larry will someday return. Chris idolizes his father, not knowing initially what he has done.

ANN DEEVER (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, mid-20’s-mid-30’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
Ann is twenty-six, gentle but despite herself capable of holding fast to what she knows.
Ann arrives at the Keller home having shunned her “guilty” father since his imprisonment. Throughout the play, Ann is often referred to as pretty, beautiful, and intelligent-looking and as “Annie”. She had a relationship with Larry Keller before his disappearance and has since moved on because she knows the truth of his fate. She hopes that the Kellers will consent to her marriage to Larry’s brother, Chris, with whom she has corresponded by mail for two years. Ann is the truth-bearer in the play. (Role is cast, seeking possible understudy or replacement)

GEORGE DEEVER (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s)
George is Chris’ age, but a paler man, now on the edge of his self-restraint. He speaks quietly, as though afraid to find himself screaming.George is Ann’s older brother: a successful New York lawyer, WWII veteran, and a childhood friend of Chris’s. He initially believed in his father’s guilt, but upon visiting Steve in jail, realizes his innocence and becomes enraged at the Kellers for deceiving him. He returns to save his sister from her marriage to Chris, creating the catalyzing final events.

DR. JIM BAYLISS (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s-40’s)
Doctor Bayliss is nearing forty. A wry, self-controlled man, an easy talker, but with a wisp of sadness that cling even to his self-effacing humor.A successful doctor, but frustrated with the stifling domesticity of his life. He wants to become a medical researcher but continues in his job as it pays the bills. He is a close friend to the Keller family and spends a lot of time in their back yard.

SUE BAYLISS (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s-40’s)
She is rounding forty, an overweight woman who fears it.Sue is Jim’s wife: needling and dangerous, but sweet and neighborly. She too is a friend of the Keller family but is secretly resentful of what she sees as Chris’s bad idealistic influence on Jim. Sue confronts Ann about her resentment of Chris in a particularly volatile scene in their backyard.

FRANK LUBEY (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s)
Frank is thirty-two but balding. A pleasant, opinionated man, uncertain of himself, with a tendency toward peevishness when crossed, but always wanting it pleasant and neighborly.Frank was always one year ahead of the draft, so he never served in World War II, instead staying home to marry George’s former sweetheart, Lydia. He draws up Larry’s horoscope and tells Kate that Larry must still be alive, because the day he died was meant to be his “favorable day”. This strengthens Kate’s faith and makes it much harder for Ann to move on.

LYDIA LUBEY (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, mid-20’s-mid-30’s)
a robust, laughing girl of twenty-­seven.Lydia was George’s love interest before the war; after he went away, she married Frank and they soon had three children. She is a model of peaceful domesticity and lends a much-needed cheerful air to several moments of the play, and a nostalgia to what George “might have had”.

BERT (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 8-14 to play 8)
Bert is a little boy who lives in the neighborhood; he is friends with the Bayliss’ son Tommy and frequently visits the Kellers’ yard to play “jail” with Joe. He appears only twice in the play: the first time, his part seems relatively unimportant, but the second time his character is more important as he sparks a verbal attack from mother when mentioning “jail,” which highlights Joe’s secret.

SEEKING

The casting for this project is now closed.

An ensemble of excellent actors to play the following roles:

NORA (female identifying, any race or ethnicity, 40’s-50’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
Fiercely independent and confident; An intelligent, independent, and very successful author; A resourceful woman returning to a life she abandoned to ensure her future; and it may break her. She takes great pride in her success and autonomy, but even when she seems a bit too smug or certain, we must like her.

TORVALD (male identifying, any race or ethnicity, 40’s-50’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
A gentle, mostly affable single father shocked by the arrival of his wife 15 years after she left; being confronted with Nora rocks his world; maybe he’s still in love with her, maybe he isn’t. On the surface, he is mild-mannered, measured, and reserved. He keeps his feelings and emotions close to his vest, but feels quite deeply and is unsure of how to express it. When he loses it, we are surprised.

ANNE MARIE (female identifying, any race or ethnicity, 50’s-60’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
Really exhausted, but making it work; Nora’s former nanny. Honest, big-hearted, candid, loyal, and blunt. Quick to make every sacrifice for those around her. Replacement mother to Nora’s children, and the person who picked up the pieces after Nora left; she thought she’d never see Nora again, but she does, and she’s pissed.

SIDE 1  |  SIDE 2   –   EMMY (female identifying, any race or ethnicity, 20’s)
Nora and Torvald’s daughter. She is strong, cunning, and self-aware yet refined. Fiercely intelligent. Confident in some ways, a traditional romantic in other ways – Nora’s daughter for sure. It’s been 15 years since Nora left her, and Emmy has not forgiven her mother; but she needs Nora now.
