Casting call for “Family Symmetry” (NYC, Saturday, June 20th)

My show, Family Symmetry, will be appearing in the Midtown International Theatre Festival (MITF) next month. This is a non-union, non-paying gig, but the exposure is great and the script is solid (I wrote it, after all). The show is a drama in two acts and runs about 80 minutes.

I am looking for an actress to play Suzanne: a late 20s/early 30s Caucasian wife of an OCD husband. She is somewhat meek and timid, but not pathetic or whiny. She has been confined emotionally by her husband’s disorder for a few years, and the wear on her is showing. She had long-lost dreams of being a doctor or nurse, but gave them up for reasons largely withheld. Instead, she looks to Allen, her husband, as someone she can “fix”.

Casting Call is by appointment only on Saturday, June 20th (yes, this Saturday). Please only respond to this call ONLY if you a) are non-union, b) fit the aforementioned role, and c) can make ALL Tech and Performance Dates listed below. Please email me back with a headshot/resume and all times on Saturday you are available to meet. Scheduling will be done in 30-minute slots. No monologue required; sides will be provided. If interested, please respond to this email no later that Friday (tomorrow) at 9pm. Slots will be awarded on a first-emailed, first-served basis.

Rehearsals will be 1-2x/week depending on actor/director availability. Tech/Show Dates are as follows (times listed are actor call times; showtimes are 30 minutes after call):
