Upcoming Auditions

STICK FLY

by Lydia R. Diamond
directed by DeMone Seraphin

Production dates May 6 – June 5, 2022

STICK FLY explores the tensions that rest on and beneath the surface of this affluent African American family. It highlights the truth that money and prestige does not safeguard us from the explosions of family secrets and the dynamics that are created and exposed as those secrets are unearthed. It also explores the tensions in interracial relationships…especially when they too are hidden.

Taylor Late 20s, daughter from an earlier marriage of renowned, recently deceased, public intellectual, James Bradley Scott. She was raised by a single mother college professor. Though she carries his name, and so has had entrée to some special privileges, her father was not a part of her life. She also has gone without financially.

Cheryl 18, The daughter of the family maid. Pretty, bright, always well-intentioned AND STRONG-WILLED. Cheryl has always had a crush on Flip.

Flip Mid to late 30s, oldest son of the LeVay family. The “golden boy” who, with some compromises, has fallen in line with his father’s expectations. He is an incorrigible ladies man.

Joe LeVay Late 50s, LeVay patriarch. He is a well-intentioned man, who rules his family with a firm, but loving hand. He, like Flip, has always had a way with women.

Kimber Mid 30s, White. Kimber is an intelligent woman with a quick wit and sincere warmth. Unlike Taylor, her social status matches that of the LeVays, with of course, the undeniable privilege of whiteness. Of this she is aware, and on some level appalled.
