Maple and Vine – Role Breakdown (PDF Link)

Retro attitudes about gender, race, and sexuality are thrust into a modern world with Jordan Harrison’s provocatively dark comedy, Maple and Vine. When the fast-paced demands of modern society become unbearable, successful couple Katha and Ryu escape to a community of 1950s re-enactors, forsaking cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. Will replacing Wi-Fi with hi-fi provide the contentment this couple so desperately craves? Excavating man’s (and woman’s) irrational predilection for yesteryears, it is surprising what people will sacrifice in the pursuit of “happiness.”

Actors Theatre of Louisville presented the World Premiere of Maple and Vine at the 2011 Humana Festival. Playwrights Horizons, Inc., New York City, produced the New York Premiere Off-Broadway in December 2011. ACT presented the West Coast Premiere in 2012.

Actors booked for an audition time slot will be asked to prepare an appropriate monologue no longer than 2 minutes in length. Callbacks will be held on Saturday, September 13 beginning at 10AM.
