THE STORY: New Jersey accountant George Peters and Oakland housewife Doris meet at a Northern California inn in February 1951. They have an affair, and agree to meet once a year, despite the fact both are married to others and have six children between them. Over the course of the next 24 years, they develop an emotional intimacy deeper than what one would expect to find between two people meeting for a clandestine relationship just once a year. During the time they spend with each other, they discuss the births, deaths, and marital problems each is experiencing at home, while they adapt themselves to the social changes affecting their lives.
We’re seeking a strong, comedic male actor to play the following role:
GEORGE PETERS (40s-60s) – Good comic timing, able to portray a neurotic affect (think Woody Allen-esque) and ability to memorize a leading role
**NOTE: The role of DORIS has already been cast.
You will be asked to cold read from the script during the audition.
