CAST REQUIREMENTS: (3 Males, 3 Females)
KENT (SPOON) – late 20’s to early 30’s African American) the youngest son of the LeVay family; has grown up with an artistic disposition in a family of doctors and lawyers. Though financially privileged, he has struggled to find his place in life and with his family

TAYLOR – (late 20’s to early 30’s –African American), the daughter from an earlier marriage of renowned, recently deceased, public intellectual, James Bradley Scott. She was raised by a single mother college professor. Although she carries his name and so has entrée to some social privilege, her father was not part of her life. She has gone without financially

CHERYL – (late teens to early 20’s- African American) the daughter of the family maid; pretty, bright, always well-intentioned; has always had a crush on Flip

FLIP – (early to mid 30’s – African American) oldest son of 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 (DAD) – (late 50’s to early 60’s – African American) the LeVay patriarch; a well-intentioned man, who rules his family with a firm, loving hand. He like Flip has always had a way with women

KIMBER – (late 20’s to mid 30’s –Caucasian} is an intelligent woman with a quick wit and sincere warmth. Her social status matches that of the LeVay’s, with of course, the undeniable privilege of whiteness – of this she is aware, and on some level appalled
