In Greenwich Village a generation or so ago, the city is alive. Joni Mitchell sings, friend and lovers
come and go, and the regulars change at the White horse Tavern. As 50 years pass, one woman’s
life is revealed in all its complexity, mystery and possibility in this enthralling world premiere about
mothers and daughters, beginnings and endings in New York City.

1: [CAST: Edie Falco] Charley McBride. A woman in her fifties. A lifelong New Yorker. A single mother.
Receptionist at St. Vincent’s Hospital for many years. Reserved in her manner. Doesn’t wear her heart
on her sleeve, but is clear-eyed and knows herself. Close with her mother, though they are very
different women who consistently disagree with each other. Unassertive, but capable of making big life
decisions without a lot of fuss.

2: [CAST: Blair Brown] Claudette McBride/The Translator/other characters. A woman in her seventies.
Charley’s mother, Claudette McBride. Outspoken, confident, opinionated. Loves her daughter deeply,
but not very carefully. Came to New York young and carved out a life for herself in the West Village –
a point of pride for her. THE TRANSLATOR: Speaks English and Mandarin. An intermediary between
the audience and the action. They intervene in the action only when their presence becomes
essential. They are otherwise engaged in an act of self-abnegation.

3: [CAST: Marin Ireland] Tessa McBride/other characters. A woman in her thirties. Charley’s daughter,
Tessa McBride. Grew up mostly living with her mother and grandmother. Tough and dry exterior, but
lost underneath. Needs her mother more than she wants to admit.

Please submit contemporary monologues, 2 minutes in length. Videos should be shot in landscape framing and sent in a nondownloadable format – private YouTube link, Vimeo, etc. Please include your headshot & resume. Subject line should include your name and your Equity status.

Deadline: 09/24/2021
