Nov. 26, 2003 – Pistarckle Theater has a casting call Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the theater in Tillett Gardens for its next production, a two-character comedy/drama called "Sisters."
The play, written by Marsha Jackson-Randolph, is about a young advertising executive and a cleaning staff worker who are stranded in the executive's office on the 20th floor of an Atlanta high-rise on New Year's Eve when a storm causes a power failure.
"Through this awkward pairing, they learn about each other and themselves. Their differences make them similar, and their similarities make them sisters," a Pistarckle release states.
According to the Pistarckle Web site, the production is being directed by Lawrence Benjamin Jr.
Here's what he'll be looking for at the auditions:
Olivia, the ad exec: Late 20s to early 30s, dark-skinned African-American woman. Although her roots are working class, she grew up in her parents' middle-class home, sheltered and a little fragile. She tries to hold herself together emotionally but is showing signs of coming undone.
Cassie, the cleaning lady: Late 30s to mid 40s, light-skinned African-American woman. There is energy and vitality in her interactions with Olivia and experience in her dialect and insights; she's a survivor and a pussycat at heart, although one wouldn't immediately know it.
The Web site lists the performance dates as Jan. 8-10, 16-17, and 22-24.
