Rehearsal will begin ~July 30th
July 11th and 12th
WHIPPED is a dark comedy set in a dystopian America 18 years in the future after the election of its first female president. A struggling couple with some uncomfortable secrets are visited by Whip, a government case officer for the Department of Personal Responsibility and Rectitude. Whip, an Asian-American with a phony English accent, is not the devoted, squeaky clean official that he’s cracked up to be. Content warning: Rape/sexual violence.
Whip (Asian male, 30s-40s) A hyper-articulate, eccentric, yet seemingly righteous government officer. Like his phony English accent, Whip is not what he appears to be. He is a psychopath with a dark, twisted agenda. Must be able to do a reasonably believable English accent.
Cassie (Anglo Saxon White female, 30s) Beautiful yet complacent. Long-suffering wife, who attacked by malevolent forces, must summon a moxy and a courage that is foreign to her. Involves a scene of sexual violence.
Lola (White female, of Mediterranean descent, late 20s-mid 30’s) a sexy heiress, rebelling against her privileged background by getting entangled in morally dubious pursuits.
Simpson/Dancer (Female, 30s, any race/ethnicity) slick, buttoned-up government bureaucrat, who knows how to work the system. Cynical and morally compromised. Seeking actor who moves; must be comfortable with movement choreography.
Sides will be provided via email.
Bring a headshot and resume.
