CONVERSATIONS IN A CAFE by Bill Cissna
Conversations in a Cafe is a play written by long time brooklynONE playwright contributor and collaborator Bill Cissna.
In a small café in a large city, a diverse group of single individuals cross paths under the watchful and judging eye of Meredith, the waitress. To varying degrees, all eight of them seek true love, a non- committal relationship or just someone to talk to. Over two acts and a little over a week, a twice-divorced semi-successful writer, a bookstore clerk, her well-to-do friend, a lovely government worker, a cocky salesman of some sort, a lonely widow and two stockbrokers interact and try to connect. They succeed, in very different ways, in the very difficult world of dating in the 21st Century.
WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
CARL WILSON, about 30. A businessman of some sort, he is not (currently) married. He is quite good-looking, though over time we come to find that he personifies the concept that beauty is only skin deep.
DON JENSON, 45-50. A semi-successful writer. Twice divorced; the second divorce is not that far in the past. Still working at understanding women.
SUSAN PORTER, 40-45. A well-dressed businesswoman who married her high-school sweetheart and lost him to a 22-year-old about three years earlier. Still single, still wounded, still looking, still a workaholic.
The reading will take place May 14th, with 1 or 2 rehearsal leading up to it. No memorization is needed. Good personalities and collaborative spirits encouraged.
