CASTING 2 males (see character descriptions below)
PREPARATION Because this is a dialogue heavy play, actors should prepare a memorized 1-3 minute dramatic or dark comedic monologue. Additional sides will be available for reading. Actors should also be prepared to list any conflicts on their audition sheets so they can be taken into consideration for casting.
ABOUT THE PLAY A God-fearing ex-con saves a despondent college professor from throwing himself in front of a speeding subway train and struggles to comprehend the suicidal man's unwavering despair during a series of intense philosophical debates. Deft, spare, and full of artful tension, The Sunset Limited is a beautifully crafted, consistently thought-provoking, and deceptively intimate work by one of the most insightful writers of our time: Pulizter Prize and Academy Award winner Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men, The Road, All the Pretty Horses) and was adapted for the screen in 2011 featuring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson.
"The Sunset Limited embarks on a conversation that our noisy, contentious, fast-wired world seems reluctant to have, lest anyone get too offended: Is there a God? And if so, does he give a fig about you and me? And if there isn't a God, can we live with that?" - The Washington Post.
REHEARSALS & PERFORMANCES Rehearsals will begin in February with performances March 16-18 and 23-25. While a rehearsal schedule will be determined after casting, actors should plan to be available for tech and final dress rehearsals the week prior to opening (March 9-15).
CHARACTERS WHITE (Male / Late 30's - early 60's): White male. College professor. Intelligent yet world weary. He is a deeply broken man whose love for cultured things like art and literature has begun to die out, leaving him with nothing. He is studious and fully comprehensive, perhaps even manipulative, of his surroundings. Sad, but not pathetic. Angry, but not raging. He has simply decided that he is through with this life. Can be played from a wide age range.
BLACK (Male / Late 40's - early 60's): Black male. Passionate, born again Christian with a troubled background. Ex-con who found God while in prison and is determined to do his part to spread the good word and help others find their salvation. Allows his newfound faith to be his driving force. Blue-collar, working man. Needs to be older than WHITE. Should look strong and have a physical presence that comes from years of hard work and hardship.
Gaslight does not discriminate in casting on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, disability, gender, sexual orientation or identity.
There are two buildings in the East End Centre on Heinz Drive, and our theatre is located in the center of the one anchored by Gabe's. Look for our flashing lights or the sign for the laundromat (we're right next door!).
