RE: The Whistleblower
112 W 34th Street, 17th Fl.
New York, NY 10120

SEEKING:

DAN/JED– male, any ethnicity, late 30’s to early 40’s, Eli’s agent, with an intense positive spin on things that might or might not just be a veneer covering mercenary desperation. Also plays JED, Eli’s friend from growing up, same age as Eli (37), a decent, stand-up guy, but somewhat conflict-averse.

RICHARD/JOSEPH male, any ethnicity, 60’s, a television producer. A compelling combination of warmth and ruthlessness; an amazing listener and communicator who is also somehow totally uninterested in other people. Also plays JOSEPH, Eli’s father, eager, vulnerable, stuck in life; bitter about the deferral of his dreams but still hoping against hope they’ll be fulfilled.

SOPHIE/REBECCA/ELEANOR– female, any ethnicity, late 20s to mid 30’s, Dan’s assistant,  well-meaning, timid, hesitant. Also plays REBECCA, Eli’s twin sister, seemingly loud, proud, aggressive, but this bluster is covering deep insecurity and shame. Either way, she has big feelings, and ELEANOR, a girl Eli once knew, well-defended, holding her cards pretty close to the chest — at least in the scene where we see her — but from what we can tell a fully-formed adult person who knows who she is.

HANNAH– female, any ethnicity, 60’s, Eli’s mother, a therapist, very organized and competent, but also extremely anxious.

MAX– male, any ethnicity, mid to late 30’s, another friend of Eli’s from growing up, lives on a boat, the kind of person who is either enlightened or insane…or both.

SEEKING:

LIZZY BENNET- female, any ethnicity, 20s to mid-30s. Clever, spirited; can be sharp-tongued. Gets flustered, which makes her klutzy. Prides herself on good judgment. Not especially beautiful. Does not double.

JANE BENNET/MISS DE BOURGH- a woman of color, late 20’s to late 30’s, the eldest and most beautiful Bennet daughter. Kind, idealistic, diffident. Always tries to do the right thing. Also plays MISS DE BOURGH; overbred and overindulged.

SEEKING:

CYNTHIA- (Female, 40’s-50’s, African American) Chris’s mother and Brucie’s wife. She is content with her life, but she is ambitious. When a possible promotion to Warehouse Supervisor opens she goes for it in the hopes that she can make a difference in the lives of those she loves. As her industry crumbles around her she struggles with the balance of being the supportive friend and doing what she has to do for herself and her family.

STAN- (Male, 50’s, White American) Run’s the bar where everyone hangs out. Tends to be the mediator for all of them when quarrels begin to emerge. Loyal worker at Olstead’s for 28 years. He was lucky to secure a job at the bar after sustaining an injury at the plant. He walks with a limp as a result. He provides support, advice and security to all of the bar’s patrons. He sustains a terrible injury at the end of the play after trying to break up a fight.

JASON- (Male, 20’s-early 30’s, White American) Tracey’s son. 21 years old and started as a worker in Olstead’s plant in 2000. Had a plan to stay at the plant till he could retire and open a Dunkin’ Donuts. In 2008 the same character will appear as an ex-convict with white supremacist tattoos across his face.  Jason is a hot head full of youthful hubris and exuberance.

CHRIS- (Male, 20’s-early 30’s, African American) Cynthia and Brucie’s son. 21 years old and a worker at Olstead’s plant with plans to attend Albright University that fall. Much like his mother he struggles to find the balance between helping others and helping himself.  Will appear in 2008 as a 29 year old ex-convict trying to find his footing. He turns towards religion to help him get through a tough transition into civilian life.

JESSIE- (Female, 40’s, Italian American) Close friend and co-worker of Tracey and Cynthia. Has a serious drinking problem since her husband left her. A dreamer who got caught up in the riptide of life.

BRUCIE- (Male, 40’s-50’s, African American) Cynthia’s husband and Chris’s father now separated from Cynthia. Can become smooth and charming at the drop of a hat. Used to work at the plant but has been locked out for almost two years. Has a drug addiction and as a result has issues sustaining his livelihood and supporting his family.  Is seen as a burden to those he loves and others around him

EVAN- (Male, 40’s, African American) Both Chris and Jason’s parole officer who is assisting them with the transition into civilian life. Described as “comfortably puffy” but does not shy away from the tough love approach when trying to get the boys to see where their lives have led them.
