About the Play:
Told primarily through the point of view of Tom, a theoretical physicist, the play explores the relationships of four close friends–Leslie, Dan, Fred, and Tom–the year after the tragic death of their friend Carmen strains their relationship to the point of fracture. Memories of Carmen haunt the group, and the laws of physics are bent as they work through their suspicions, grief, anger, and sadness together. As the truth comes to light, everyone must reconcile what happened with their own version of reality.
Tom – (M – late twenties/early thirties)
Theoretical Physicist. Timid, intellectual, absent minded. Loses himself in his work constantly. Slightly out-of-touch with reality.
Carmen – (F – late twenties/early thirties)
Poet. Fred’s sister. Deceased. Young, wild, beautiful, and free. Sexy and ambitious. Seizes life and takes it at every turn, even if it’s for the worse.
Leslie – (F – late twenties/early thirties)
Novelist. Carmen’s best friend. Reserved, defensive, proud.
Dan – (M – late twenties/early thirties)
Editor. Alpha male. Brash, arrogant, opinionated, and deeply, deeply hurt.
Fred – (M – late twenties/early thirties)
Wildean Scholar. Carmen’s brother, Tom’s boyfriend. Level headed, heartfelt, caring, torn.

This is a great opportunity to get involved! While these auditions are specifically for roles in Supergravity and the Eleventh Dimension, we never forget a friendly face and often pull from the pool of actors who have auditioned for our productions while casting readings and special events! However, if you are not available for this show, do not fear – we will hold auditions for all future productions!
