AUDITIONS FOR THE VIRTUAL STAGED READING OF
THE CRIBBAGE GAME
Each day in Sayulita, Mexico, a happy hour cribbage game brings three ex-pat Americans at their usual table at Joe’s Bar. As they play, we glimpse their personalities and learn over time the pain of hidden truths between them. Ultimately, a decision is made that may cause one of them to peril despite the love and friendship that bonds them together.
Looking for union and non-union actors to play the following roles in our 3-week development program.
JOE: Mid-thirties, easy-going, easy to talk to bartender at Joe’s Bar. Original from San Diego, but moved to Sayulita, Mexico, to surf until he met his wife. The couple has two kids and owns the bar.
LUPITA: Joe’s wife. Mid-thirties, born in Sayulita, has a sassy, fire-cracker personality. She’s a savvy businesswoman, compassionate, loves her husband, and is very perceptive. Everything about her persona is colorful. She speaks with a Mexican Spanish accent.
ARNIE: Mid-sixties. Originally from the mid-west. He comes across as a curmudgeon who needs to control his environment but can be friendly when he gets to know a person. He’s twice divorced, estranged from family, suffers from PTSD, all of which has caused him to create a wall that prevents him from establishing meaningful relationships.
PETE: Mid-sixties, from Chicago. An out-going, likable personality, but he seldom shares information about his life back home. Displays patience with Arnie’s foibles for the most part. Gets frustrated on occasion, but overall is a calming influence on Arnie.
CLAIRE: Late fifties. Former beauty queen from Ohio. Breast cancer survivor. Owned a PR firm in NYC but recently sold and moved to Sayulita. She possesses a natural sophistication and a good sense of humor, though she struggles with self-image issues after all the surgery and cancer treatment.
