OPEN to casting performers of all races and all genders
between the ages of 30-75 for the following characters:

ERIK – (50s-60s male) A middle class Irish Catholic husband and father, practical to a fault and very set in his ways. He has sacrificed a great deal over the years to provide a good life for his family. A recent confession, however, has upset the comfortable world he knows. He is trying desperately to reconnect with his wife, and cling to his increasingly distant adult daughters.

AIMEE – (30-40s female) Erik and Deirdre’s eldest daughter. Both self-conscious and self-deprecating, her career as a lawyer once held great promise. Now, her physical and emotional health both suffer. She is deeply, quietly sad and in intense pain following a breakup from her long-term girlfriend.

RICHARD – (30s-40s male) A worldly wise graduate student, Richard comes from a wealthy family and has never wanted for anything. He truly loves Erik’s daughter Brigid and yearns to be accepted by her family.

MOMO – (senior female) Erik’s elderly Irish Catholic mother, and beloved grandmother to his daughters, has been afflicted with dementia. For the most part, she remains passive and disconnected but has episodes where she becomes manic and aggressive.

The roles of DEIRDRE and BRIGID have been cast.
