Nash Theatre is looking for three cast members required for their upcoming production, ‘Straight’ (2 Males and 1 Female aged between 20 and 30). ‘Straight’ will be performed between 20 September – 19 October 2019.
Ben—26-year-old investment banker living in Boston. Waist deep in the murky waters of “the odyssey period,” the phase between college and “adulthood, when careers idle, family life awaits and roots are planted nowhere. He and Emily have been dating since college days without momentum. His job provides plenty of money but little satisfaction or direction. Socially capable, casually masculine and always well-liked. Ben is used to winning at life. But he is becoming secretly anxious that the real world is not living up to its promises and worries that maybe “this is it”
Chris—20 year (and three quarters) history student. He likes beer, sarcasm and irony but mostly uses them as a front to mask more deep-seated insecurities. He is socially precocious and, perhaps in compensation for his age outwardly confident in his interactions with Ben and Emily, making his rare moments of vulnerability surprising, if logical upon reflection. He is appealing, in a boyish way, and he knows it, though he wouldn’t admit that even to himself.
Emily—27 nearing the end of purgatory as a PhD candidate in bioinformatics at Harvard. Older then Ben but still a student. Emily looks to him ad her window to the “real world,” which she sees as the prize waiting for her at the end of the long tunnel of her studies. Emily holds herself to the highest of standards but without \taking herself too seriously. She is quirky, optimistic, social, trusting and idealistic, mentally robust but young at heart.
