CASTING;

"Come Back" presents some interesting possibilities, as no genders are specified for any character. It is the director's intention to cast two casts of six actors, and to rehearse each cast equally and together. The cast will be mix and matched for each performance, so that no audience will ever see the same cast perform the show. It is also her intention to cast one actor as the voice of "Bruce" and that actor will do the voice live on an off-stage mic for each performance. Neil Haven has very kindly made adjustments to his script to cut all of the pot smoking and has cut the f bombs so that we may present this piece to school audiences as well as adult audiences. These changes will be reflected in the rehearsal scripts.


CASTING A TOTAL OF 11 ACTORS. DIRECTOR HAS NO AGENDA FOR GENDER SPECIFIC CASTING.

  • Actor One; CASTING TWO OF THIS ROLE.  Sky (either gender) Main narrator of the action. Erin/Aaron's lifelong friend and caretaker.
  • Actor Two; CASTING TWO OF THIS ROLE.  Val (either gender) Parent of Erin/Aaron
  • Actor Three; CASTING TWO OF THIS ROLE.  Erin/Aaron, handicapped and will use a wheelchair in the show, as well as walking in the ‘imagined' scenes.
  • Actor Four; CASTING TWO OF THIS ROLE.  (either gender) Lawyer/Cop/Bottle/Texas/Oklahoma/Billings.
  • Actor Five; CASTING TWO OF THIS ROLE. (Playwright has asked that this track be played by a male) Mel/Davenport/Cake/Nevada Ned/Arkansas/Mississippi
  • Actor Six; CASTING ONE OF THIS ROLE. WILL PERFORM WITH ANY CAST COMBINATION.  Voice of Bruce. Will be played live each performance.
