Lubbock Community Theatre announces auditions for PIPELINE
Written by Dominique Morisseau
Directed by April Langhennig
Published by Concord Theatricals
February 28, 7:30 – 9pm
Dramatic Monologue (90 sec)
March 1, 6:45 – 8:45pm
Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away?
We are looking for a creative, inventive ensemble who will make strong, committed choices in portraying true persons in real life and dramatic situations. The show will be cast with principles of color-conscious casting in mind.
Nya: Female-identifying, Black / African Descent, 35-45
Single mother; public H.S. Teacher; trying to raise her teenage son on her own with much difficulty; a good teacher inspiring her students in a stressed environment; a struggling parent doing her trying her best; strong but burning out; smoker; sometimes drinker; holding together by a thread.
Omari: Male-identifying, Black / African Descent, 18-25
Late teens; smart and astute; rage without release; tender and honest at his core; something profoundly sensitive amidst the anger; wrestling with his identity between private school education and being from a so-called urban community; Nya’s son.
Jasmine: Female-identifying, Latinx, 18-25
Latinx woman, late teens; sensitive and tough; a sharp bite, a soft smile; profoundly aware of herself and her environment; attends upstate private school but from a so-called urban environment; in touch with the poetry of her own language.
Xavier: Male-identifying, Black / African Descent, 35-45
Black man, mid-late 30’s; single father: struggling to connect to his own son; marketing exec; wounded relationship with his ex-wife; financially stable; emotionally impoverished; Nya’s ex-husband; Omari’s father.
Laurie: Female-identifying, White / European Descent, 45-55
Pistol of a woman; teaches in public high school and can hold her own against the tough students and the stressed environment; doesn’t bite her tongue; a don’t-mess-with-me chick.
Dun, Male-identifying, Black / African Descent, 30-40
Public high school security guard; fit and optimistic; charismatic with women; genuine and thoughtful and trying to be a gentleman in a stressed environment; it’s not easy.
