While I thank all for their interest – space is limited. I will try and see as many people as possible.
- Iris – Female, 11 years old* young adult actors only please
Precocious, clever, and imaginative. Desperately trying to keep her parent’s relationship from dissolving. Sees the world through magic realism, the eyes of a child.
- Sylvia – Female, age range 30-50.
Mother to Iris and wife to Owen. Romantic. Stuck. Somewhat lacking a maternal instinct and constantly preparing to leave the family.
- Owen – Male, age range 30-50.
Father to Iris and husband to Sylvia. Logical. In love with geometry/linear thinking and desperately trying to implant that love on his wife. Was injured in the war and has not worked since.
- Mr. Lawrence – Open. Any identity/expression.
Mysterious, drifter. Searching for their place in the world.
- Miss Rose – Female, age range 30-50.
Godmother to Iris. Lives in the family’s home (rooming house). Works in the cannery by day and canoodles with the veterans in the legion at night. Her true love is a lavender bath. Likes a strong drink.
