Breakdown
EUGENE
To play almost 15 years old. Our narrator, a natural entertainer. Smart, spunky, highly verbal, and obsessed with 1) baseball, and 2) the female anatomy, which he’s never seen. Wants to be a baseball player, but if that doesn’t work out, will settle for being a writer. Keeps a detailed journal of his family’s eccentricities, which concern him and drive him crazy in equal measure. All boy but capable of open emotion. The physical size and vocal quality of the actor must help to sell Eugene’s age (14)– at the same time, the actor shouldn’t work to play’ the youth, but to play the stakes of the scene and let his youthful qualities emerge naturally.

KATE
About 40. The heart of the play. Eugene and Stanley’s mother. A lioness, at once an optimist and tough realist. In constant battle with the series of emergencies that keep her big family fed and safe under one (small) roof. Harbors some deep resentment at the trials she must endure, can have trouble showing affection and is
capable of being very stern– but always rooted in love and passionate devotion to the safety of her brood. Her belief in providence and her determination to find the good in the bad things that happen are balanced with a xenophobic distrust of anything or anyone not immediately familiar.

STANLEY
To play 18 and a half years old. In some way the perfect older brother to Eugene — salt of the earth, hard-working, deeply ethical, and very sensitive while still a man’s man. At the same time Stanley is still learning to be an adult, in part through messing up, at times very badly. Regrets having to work in a factory and can make wild attempts to ”escape” with bad results. He very powerfully and emotionally regrets when he feels he has failed his responsibility to his family (especially his younger brother). Groping his way to adulthood, breaking some of the good china on the way.

NORA
To play ’16 and a half with a developed chest. A very beautiful, fundamentally sweet and good-natured girl, Eugene and Stanley’s cousin. Has been studying dance
for many years and may have just gotten her big break. Alongside her sweet nature are deep resentments about her bad luck at having lost her father very young and having a kid sister who is pampered because of perceived weak health. Can be angry and petulant when confronted with sacrifice. When push comes to shove, though, her basic decent nature quickly reasserts itself. (theatre prefers to cast this role under a Non-AEA contract)

Breakdown
June Bunkridge:
late 40s – late 50s, a gin-guzzling, cigar-chomping, masculine woman with more than a hint of a sadistic bent; a closeted lesbian in mid ‘60s London who plays the much-beloved, warm-hearted Sister George, a kindly, salt of the earth rural nurse on a BBC radio soap opera. Seeking a comic actress of unusual force who can dominate any space she’s in with her vocal and physical presence, yet is able to access the extreme vulnerability beneath June’s shockingly domineering personality. Must expertly master an urban AND rural British accent. Must do an Oliver Hardy impersonation.

Alice McNaught (Childie):
early to mid 30s but gives the impression of being much younger; Scottish by birth. Waif-ish and sexy, part Lolita and part Laura Wingfield from The Glass Menagerie. She can seem pure victim one moment, then master manipulator in the next. Scottish accent required. Must impersonate Stan Laurel. Flute playing a plus.
