RE: Good Kids
112 W 34th Street 17th FL
New York, NY 10120


NOTE: Actors should be aware that, as this is a university production, weekday rehearsals (Tu-Fri) are generally 6p-10p or 6:30p-10:30p, with Saturday rehearsals generally 10a-6p. Mondays and most Sundays are off. A full rehearsal/performance calendar can be available on request.

STORYLINE: Good Kids takes place after a highschool party, when a girl, Chloe is raped by a gang of football players while passed out drunk, and the repercussions and rumors that circulate among her peers comprise most of the play. “We’re all good kids.  Every single one of us,” says one of the female characters, perhaps wishfully. So what social influences can lead so many “good kids” to collectively assault a classmate, post and share the evidence on social media—not to mention not intervene while the act is happening?

DEIRDRE-  Female. Seeking an actress with a disability that walks with the aid of a mobility device (or devices). Mid-twenties to mid-thirties, any ethnicity.  An enigmatic woman who is computer savvy and masterful at manipulation of social media. She is fierce, articulate, and driven. Her disability is the result of a wild high school night ending, not only with a sexual assault, but with an accident in a car driven by drunken school athletes.  They walked away.  We are seeking an actor who can handle sharp-edged narration and emotionally charged material, and who can lead the cast as a professional role model and/or mentor for our student actors.
