About the show:
Middle-aged assimilated Brit Charlie returns home to his native Dublin to sort through and come to terms with his relationship to this thoroughly beguiling, maddening presence in his life: "Da." Reminiscence gives way to memory and illusion as an adolescent "Charlie Then" is brought back from the past, while the man who is "Charlie Now" grapples with his own mortality and the part of his life that will always be the irrasicible "Da."
Director Millie Schwartz is looking to cast a total of 3 women and 5 men for the show.
Charlie Tynan – a middle-aged writer
Oliver – Charlie's childhood friend
Da (Nick Tynan)– Charlie's recently deceased adoptive father
Mother (Maggie Tynan) – Charlie's long-deceased adoptive mother
Young Charlie – Charlie as a boy and as a young man
Drumm – Charlie's employer and mentor
Mary "The Yellow Peril" Tate – a young lady with a low reputation
