Iowa City - Dreamwell is looking for mature actors for this September's production of The Women of Lockerbie by Deborah Brevoort. The play, "modeled on Greek drama and epic in form," tells the story of a group of women in Lockerbie, who are attempting to get access to the clothes of people who died in a plane crash there, so that they can wash them and return them to the victims' families. Rachael Lindhart directs.
MADELINE LIVINGSTON - "American housewife and the mother of a 20-year old son killed in the crash 7 years ago. She will need to be in her late 40s or early 50s."
BILL LIVINGSTON - "American -- husband of Madeline and father of the son killed in the crash. Also in late 40s or early 50s."
OLIVE ALLISON - "An older woman from Lockerbie (Scottish accent) who is the leader of the laundry project. She is also in her 40s.
WOMAN 1 & WOMAN 2 - "Both women of Lockerbie (Scottish accent) who are part of the laundry project. Could be 30s or 40s or older. Although they don't have names, both are considerable roles -- not chorus or bit parts, although they do sometimes form part of a chorus."
HATTIE - "A cleaning woman from Lockerbie. Again, will need a Scottish accent but could be 30s, 40s or older."
GEORGE JONES - "American government representative in charge of warehouse. His age is variable. He could be a seasoned government man in his 50s or older, or he could be younger and seeking to advance in his government department; but at least in his 30s."
