About the project: SYNOPSIS: In this steamy prohibition tale, vaudeville performers Queenie and Burrs decide to throw the party-to-end-all-parties in their Manhattan apartment. As their guests arrive — each living life on the edge and more intriguing than the last — Queenie spies the striking Mr. Black. As her pursuit of Black and the swirling decadence of the party reach their climax, so does Burrs’ jealousy. What ensues leaves everyone asking “How did we come to this?” Additional info: Directors welcome all abilities regardless of race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and/or personal background over 18 years old.

14 roles

BlackMale18-56 y.o.African-American

(G5-F3): Strong, handsome, and poised without being posed. An enigmatic loner. Protective. No-nonsense kind of guy who cannot understand Queenie’s attraction to Burrs.

BurrsMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(A5-G3): Handsome. A professional clown. Dangerous and charming all at once. Sexually ravenous and drawn to Queenie like a moth to the flame. Hurts somewhere deep inside, and slowly descends into jealous insanity.

EddieMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

KateFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(E5-F3): A lush. Likes to be the “life of the party.” Always looking out for number one, and is jealous of Queenie. Sexy, sensual, and confident.

Madelaine TrueFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(E5-A3): A tired woman with even more tired eyes and a cruel mouth. An announced lesbian. Sexually hungry. Blunt and very dry.

MaeFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

SamMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

QueenieFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities
