When the black elite LeVay family opens its house for a weekend visit, they end up airing more than the drapes.
The LeVay sons have invited the women in their lives to meet their parents at their luxurious Martha’s Vineyard summer home. Younger brother Kent, who has struggled to find direction in his life, and has issues getting along with his father, brings his fiancée Taylor, who studies insects for her vocation. Taylor was raised in a lower-middle-class household by a single mother. Unaccustomed to privilege, she is uncomfortable in the LeVays’ home, especially with Cheryl, who is filling in for her mother as the LeVays’ maid. Eldest brother Flip, a successful plastic surgeon and womanizer, brings his new girlfriend, Kimber, who is privileged, white and has spent her life appalled by her status.
Tensions flair as race, class and family become prime conversation topics. When a phone call reveals a family secret, everything unravels. By the end of the weekend, lives have been turned upside-down and a family is left to reassemble the pieces.
Please check in at 7:00pm.
Auditioners will be asked to cold read sides from the script.
If you can't make these audition dates, please e-mail email@example.com. We will do our best to accommodate your schedule.
Taylor - 27. Black. She is fiercely intelligent, and is attuned to the many nuances of modern classism and racism. Taylor, Spoon & Flip’s step-sister, was neglected by her famous father while she and her mother struggled to survive on her single mother’s salary. Her father being a renowned public intellectual, she still has had many opportunities made available to her because of his success. She is not completely comfortable with material wealth, and sometimes feels out of place with the elite.
Kent (Spoon) LeVay – 31, Black. Sensitive and creative. Kent, spent years of college pursuing a law degree, a business degree and a masters in sociology only to decide to become a writer. The youngest son of the privileged LeVay family, Kent has grown up as the only artist in a family of doctors and lawyers.
Cheryl - 18 to 22, Black. Hard-working, ambitious daughter of the family maid.
Flip (Harold LeVay) – 36, Black. Flip is the oldest son and "golden boy" of the privileged LeVay family. He is an established plastic surgeon and revels in casual sexism and traditionally masculine social rituals.
Dad (Joe LeVay) - 58 to 62, Black. A highly respected and wealthy neurosurgeon with a ideal of what ‘achievement’ is. "Dad," the LeVay patriarch, is a well-intentioned man who rules his family with a firm and loving hand.
Kimber - 32. White. Flip’s girlfriend. Kimber is an intelligent woman with a quick wit and sincere warmth. Unlike Taylor, her social status matches that of the LeVays, with, of course, the undeniable privilege of whiteness. She fits in and is comfortable with the elite. Like Taylor, she is concerned with matters of racial and economic inequality.
This is a Non-Equity, non-paid performance role.
