Synopsis:

Beane is an exile from life – an oddball.  His well-meaning sister Joan and brother-in-law Harry try to make time for him in their busy lives, but no one can get through.  Following a burglary in his apartment, Joan is baffled to find her brother blissfully happy and tries to unravel the story behind Beane’s mysterious new love, Molly.  Funny, enchanting and wonderfully touching, John Kolvenbach’s offbeat comedy is a rhapsody to the power of love in all its forms.

ALL CHARACTERS SHOULD HAVE A GENERAL AMERICAN ACCENT

 

BEANE (25 – 35, Male) ROLE HAD BEEN CAST

A reclusive oddball. He is comfortable with being invisible and vulnerable in the world. This changes when he meets Molly and he suddenly notices every detail in the world around him.

 

MOLLY (25 – 35, Female) ROLE HAD BEEN CAST

A force of nature. Impulsive, curious and passionate. Has the personality that can knock Beane out of his funk immediately.  She is also a bit of an oddball. She’s a burglar who has an edgy danger to her but is slowly melted as she gets to know Beane.

 

JOAN (30 – 45, Female) ROLE HAD BEEN CAST

Beane’s sister. Overworked, uptight and always on edge. Corporate and the kind of person that will fire you on the spot. She is condescending and short-tempered. However, the change in her brother reminds her of her playful side and she rediscovers the love she has for her husband.

 

HARRY (30 – 45, Male) AUDITIONS for this role are on Saturday May 15th

Joan’s husband. Joan’s punching bag. He is going through the motions with his marriage. Arguing with Joan because it gives him some sort of enjoyment to break up the mundane life that he currently has. He’s realistic and logical. Despite Joan’s reprimanding nature, he holds his own.

 

WAITER

(Any Age, can be played by Harry but can also be cast separately)

Has one scene that is a lot of fun, interacting with Beane when he has suddenly discovered the world.
