Synopsis:
Mary Swanson just moved to Middletown, eager to start a family and enjoy the neighborly bonds a small town promises. When she befriends resident John Dodge, she quickly discovers that below Middletown’s flinchingly honest exterior lies something much more complex. Middletown is a wry, human portrait of a town with two lives — one ordinary and visible, the other epic and mysterious.

Character Breakdown:

Parts available for two  women and two men. The casting of multiple characters is subject to change.

The production is invested in finding a multiethnic cast, to more truly reflect the makeup of a contemporary America. All actors must attack their roles with deep honesty and investment, even in the play’s comic moments. This play is not a farce, but a thoughtful meditation of life’s biggest and smallest moments. 

John Dodge:
Male, 30-40
A jack of all trades, master of none, and longtime resident of Middletown. Exhausted, hopeful, and questioning. He seeks a way out of life’s monotony. The yin to Mary’s yang.  Also plays Man.

Audition Side ]

Mary Swanson:
Female, 30-40
A new resident of Middletown. Compassionate, intelligent, quirky, and thoroughly unprepared for the next stage. A survivor of a less than perfect domestic life. The yang to John’s yin.  Also plays Woman.

Audition Side ]

Cop:
Male, 40-55
Middletown’s longtime employee. Inquisitive, even nosy, a believer in order and beauty to a fault. He carries a sad secret and a violent streak. Also plays Ground Control, Intercom and Attendant 2.

Audition Side ]

Tour Guide:
Female, 25-35
The town’s…you guessed it. Confident, bored, myopic for never having left Middletown, but considerate. Also plays Susan, Ground Control, Sweetheart, Landscaper and Attendant.
