Please review the character descriptions below and email me ( your choices. I will email you the appropriate audition sides to be used Jan 3 & 4.

“Bus Stop” is “a composite picture of varying kinds of love, ranging from the innocent to the depraved” – Inge’s own words. It is a drama, with romantic and some comedic elements. The play is set in a diner about 30 miles west of Kansas City in early March, 1955. A freak snowstorm has halted the progress of the bus, and the eight characters (only five were in the bus) have a weather-enforced layover in the diner from approximately 1 to 5 a.m. Romantic or quasi-romantic relationships ensue between Grace and Carl; Professor Lyman and Elma; Cherie and Bo; and (implied) Virgil and Bo. Will is the older authority figure outside the relationships. The film version starring Marilyn Monroe was only very loosely based on this stage version.

ELMA DUCKWORTH, a waitress – young, high-school, plays about age 14, “innocent” (will require parental approval if under 18)

GRACE HOYLARD, café owner - plays age 30s to 50s, “casual earthiness”

CARL, a bus driver – plays age 30s to 50s, “casual earthiness”

BO DECKER, a young rancher and cowboy – plays age early 20’s, “healthy lookin’, eager, awkward, naïve.”

The Dinner Table is a short film about a family. At no point do we see the
entire family together, but through these incomplete portraits we come to
understand the entire family--through the absences of each member, we come
to understand what they mean to the whole.

The Dinner Table, like your own family, is both funny and poignant,
surprising and familiar, simple at times and irreducibly complex at others.
The film will be brief (approx. 15min) but give us a rich glimpse of these
characters and their relationships.

This will be a very performance-centric film and is a great opportunity for
actors to stretch their muscles.

6-day shoot in Seattle in mid-to-late winter with rehearsals preceding.
