Submissions from AEA members only for 4 roles in THE GREAT LEAP, part of the Long Wharf Theatre’s 2019-20 season.
MANFORD: 17 , male, Chinese American. Intense, scrappy, runs into trouble, attacks the rim with a ruthless crossover. Not tall. More Allen Iverson than Jeremy Lin.
CONNIE: 25, female, Chinese American, Manford’s cousin and UC Berkely grad student. Level headed, big picture. A Chris Paul/ Klay Thompson type.
WEN CHANG: 43, male, Chinese, coach of Beijing university’s men’s basketball team. Observant, efficient, favors three pointers over aggressive inside shots. Tim Duncan would appreciate his energy. His english is formal but relatively unaccented.
SAUL: 52, male, Jewish, coach of University of San Francisco’s men’s basketball team. A shit-talking, shot blocking, washed up Larry Bird.
For consideration, mail HARD COPY of your photo/resume asap. Deadline for receipt is Jan 29
