Directed by Saul Caplan
Produced by Melanie Brenner

A woman named Cass makes a startling discovery about her husband Kip and leaves him, hopping a bus to Niagara Falls in search of freedom, enlightenment, and the meaning of life. She takes with her a bucket list of two-hundred things she wants to do and, along the way, crosses paths with some very interesting people.

Casting Requirements:

• Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
• A résumé and headshot are not required but are appreciated.
• Please provide a list of all known conflicts.

*(All ages are approximate and relative)

-) Cass: 30’s

-) Kip: 30’s

(Cass and Kip should look like a credible couple)

-) Lois: 45-50

-) Glenn: 60-ish

-) Karla: 60-ish

-) Multi-woman: any age, but 35-45 would be ideal


Note from the director:
“Here’s what’s most important. While none of these characters are floridly psychotic, all are just a little bit off center. Think of a circle that at first glance looks perfectly round, but then you notice that it’s slightly out-of-round. Or two lines that appear parallel until you notice that one of them goes off on a slightly different direction.

“We’ll be especially looking and listening for interesting choices in line delivery; choices that 97% of other actors wouldn’t make. Be brave! Be bold! Be funny!”
