This is my first time producing and directing here in Portland, and I am choosing one of my favorite plays, THE VISIT by Friedrich Durrenmatt. It's a beautiful absurdist comedy about an old lady who returns home to wreak an exact and merciless vengeance on her former love. The script intimately joins comedy and tragedy to support each other in nearly every scene. This balance, between laughter and lunacy, between parody and misfortune, is what gives the play such resonance. It is a timeless story, as startling now as it was when originally written.

Durrenmatt writes that the play is a tragi-comedy, focusing on “a community which slowly yields to temptation..... yet this yielding must be understandable. The temptation is too great, the poverty is too bitter. THE VISIT is a malicious play, but just for that reason, it must be presented without anger and in the most humane way, with sadness and yet with humor, for nothing hurts this comedy that ends tragically more than brutal seriousness”.

Below is more information, and I'll be reaching out to actors I've met and am very interested in working with. I wanted to begin with familiar artists who have already inspired me with their talent and passion, but I'm also open to anyone looking for an amazing opportunity this fall.

I understand this is callback season, and I'm pretty sure I cannot contend with the more established companies in town, but I can promise that I run a tight ship, I can pay a pretty decent salary, and that my passion for this piece is high. Also, if you feel like getting together to talk about the show and/or other details, feel free to let me know you'd like to get together for a coffee, a beer, or other beverage of your choice. I'm excited about this piece, I'm excited about making my directing debut in Portland, and I'm excited about the many possibilities for community, collaboration, and creativity.

Casting Call for Short Film

Actors will not be compensated.  Transportation to and from film site provided.

Title: "On Homestead and Strangers"
Genre: Drama
Length: Short (20-30 minutes)
Production: Independent
Crew Size: 3 production (director, camera, and audio), 3 actors

Synopsis: Set against the landscape of rural eastern Oregon, Of Homestead and Strangers is a short film about the dreams, desires, and fears of two newly married pioneers from the eastern United States who were part of a passionate minority of Americans seeking a new life in the west.  Life becomes complicated by an unexpected visitor.  The film will take place during the 19th century, meaning period dress and props will be necessary for the film's authenticity. 


(Casting) Meredith 21-30 years old:
With a tenacious spirit, Meredith embodies both a reverence for the established social order and an unceasing appetite for personal prosperity and growth.  She is the educated one of the couple, and, to her family's disapproval, married Simon who is not of her class. 

(Casting) Simon 21-30 years old:
Simon drifts.  He is a man who reveres nature, seeing human beings as inherently imperfect things that seem to endeavor for the good but come up lacking every time.  His troubles become pronounced as the film progresses.  Meredith and Simon try to reconcile their marriage.

(Casting) Adam 45+ years old:
A trapper from Virginia.  Adam has lived in the west for nearly twenty years longer than the married party.  He picks up knowledge from hearsay, being unequipped to address logically complicated matters.  He does, however, possess a quiet wisdom.  His role in the film changes dramatically as Simon and Meredith become more and more removed from the world that Adam inhabits.

Shooting Timeline:

This will be a rapidly moving production.  During the 1st week of September, we will be hosting informal auditions for each of the roles.  In these auditions, actors will read select scenes from the film (and if they so choose, a short monologue of their choice).

The estimated week of shooting will begin the week starting 16th of September.  Pending schedule conflicts, spending that weekend shooting (20th-22nd) may be in order.  In the case of accommodation during the shoot, this will be a "rugged" adventure.  Tents and sleeping bags provided.   

Reply to:  Please contact the director, Mr. Lenhardt Stevens, at with any questions or concerns.  I look forward to hearing from all of you.

2 Actresses Wanted - Short Comedy Film

I am a film student looking to shoot a short comedy film (between 5-10 minutes in length) titled "Whatever It Takes", which follows a young and struggling real estate agent, Celeste, who is put in the position of having to sell a home or lose her job. When a young couple comes to look at a home again she tries to entice the husband into buying by playing footsie with him, unaware that in her efforts she is actually doing it with his wife. The comedy thus unfolds from there.
The film is obviously intended to be quirky and revolves around the notion of mistaken presumption. I am looking to fill the role of Celeste and of the young wife, Becky. Both characters I would range between 25 and 30 years of age. Celeste is your everyday type of person, but is versatile in that she must try and play the role of selling a home while feigning being seductive in the process. Becky's character comes off as a very polite, passive, and reserved individual, which ads an element of comedy in and of itself to the film. I am looking to shoot this as soon as possible, hoping to have the shoot complete within the next two weeks. A copy of the script will also be provided to anyone interested.
