Seeking female/male performers for theatrical play “The Octette Bridge Club” – San Diego, CA

Project: The Octette Bridge Club
Casting Calls Category: Theatrical Play
Location: San Diego, CA

Seeking 8 women (all ages & races) &
1 young man (20-30 yrs. old)

Eight women in Providence, R.I., have gathered without their husbands, as they do twice a month, for a night of gossip, home-baked pie and cards. The friends are a merry, close-knit group. They giggle as a newspaper photographer takes a picture of their ”club” for the Sunday rotogravure section; they speak or sing in unison at the drop of a cloche hat. In the first act, the year is 1934, and, as the women never cease reminding us, this was a time when families still had roots. The country is in the throes of a depression. Hardly has the photographer left than some of the gabby bridge players drop broad hints of trouble. One of them is ”moody” and ”melancholy.” Another may have a husband who drinks too much. And still another is suffering from palpitations that may or may not be attributable to the previous night’s meal of Chinese food. Act two revisits the women in 1944 when the country is in the grips of a world war. During a Halloween bridge party each acts out her costume’s persona. The emotionally distraught youngest has just gotten out of a sanitarium and knows she must cut the bonds to her smothering friends and strike out on her own. We see how they have all changed and grown through the years at their weekly bridge card playing meeting
