Video Auditions for Three Brothers Theatre’s production of WHEN IT COMES WE CAN WORRY THEN by current Resident Playwright, Konner Wilson. Directed by Jess Love.

Synopsis:

During the summer before their first year of college, Sammy and Nel strike up an unexpected friendship as they bond over shared anxieties, womanhood, and window panes.

Pay:

Characters:

Seeking two adult actors to play the following roles:

NEL: 18 year old lesbian woman, tries incredibly hard to be perceived as unbothered and tough, but she is loyal and generous to fault. Ultimately she wants to make a positive difference in the world. She is deeply sensitive and caring and will one day learn that those are her strengths and not her weaknesses.

SAMMY: 18 year old woman, people pleaser that desperately wants to be liked. She has undiagnosed anxiety and a guilty conscience but manages to always see the best in everyone, and will someday see the best in herself too.
