Casting Call: Seattle Premiere of The Familiar

Equity Member Project Code Presentation
Seattle, WA
The Familiar by Rosemary Poole-Carter
Directed by: Rik Deskin
1st Rehearsal: May 7, 2011
Opening: May 26, 2011
Closing: June 18, 2011

There’s something unsettling under the bed. Elinor wants it out, Cissie wants it hidden, and Sean would rather concentrate on possibilities on top of the bed.
As Elinor pulls old possessions and dusty objects from under the bed, these become props for improvisations among Elinor, Cissie, and Sean as the three of them maneuver around one another—provoking or tantalizing, wary of touch and entanglements—playing ever closer to what haunts them.

Sean: Late 30’s Male. A smooth-voiced and languorously sensual man, with a hint of a Southern drawl. The role includes shirtless scenes.

All other roles are already cast.
