BREAKDOWN:

NOTE:
- WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE ALL ETHICITIES TO SUBMIT
- Please read through the gorgeous details below and let them guide you for your audition. (i.e. both George and Mona are rather detached/disconnected and "fine". Neither lead off with warm fuzzies).


Subway Rider (Anabel): Female, any ethnicity, could be late 20s to late 30’s. Passionate, open, deeply quirky, wears purple plaid, a person who feels everything and is yearning to know someone else intimately, deeply, eagerly seeking a passionate human connection.  In love with what is retro, tactile, interactive. Not great with boundaries, but incredibly generous, and willing to give her heart away, literally, to make a connection. Her passion is either a superpower or a danger. Without her heart she is bewildered, bereft, angry, and indifferent by turns. It’s clear she needs her heart to truly function.  


George: 
Male, any ethnicity, could be late 20s to late 30’s. George is Mona’s son, and when he was very young, Mona, fearing a repetition of her own heartbreak, gave her son a heart made of paper, and he has been even, regular, unadventurous, content, barely aware that there is any other way to be for many years. He has only a vague dissatisfaction with the status quo tickling at the edges of his mind. When a complete stranger gives him her actual beating heart, George suddenly discovers what a wide swath of the world, experiences, and range of human emotions he has heretofore been oblivious to. Now, Anabel’s heart having awakened him, he starts to see the world, his life, and most especially his relationship with his buttoned-up mother, very differently, and is forced into the uncharted waters of seeking an emotional connection with another human being. So from neutral to emotional is his range.  


Mona:
 Female, any ethnicity, 40 to mid 60s. A woman who long ago was so badly hurt that she started taking naps to numb the pain, and eventually all her limbs went numb and she didn’t notice because numb was so much better than feeling. Mona is George’s mother, and she wanted to protect her son so badly that when he was very young she made sure he had a heart made of paper so it couldn’t bleed and break in the same way. And ever since her life with her son has been uneventful and even-keeled, and Mona has limited her contact with other people to connecting with them almost exclusively through her computer. Only recently has her Googleshrink been encouraging her to meet other people, and even then she is doing that online only, until Anabel, who is lost without the heart she has given to George, shows up on Mona’s doorstep seeking shelter until she can remember where she lives, and George starts to reprove her for his childhood, and Mona begins to re-meet the consequence of giving your actual beating heart away. She begins very buttoned up, dry, and regimented, and is forced to crack open by her encounters with the other human beings who insist on messily inserting themselves into her life.
