We are looking to cast the roles of Masha, Spike and Cassandra.
Masha – 50s/Female – a B-movie actress who is (not) dealing with her sluggish acting career or the demise of her most recent marriage. Vain & self absorbed, Masha arrives home to Bucks County to visit her siblings, towing along Spike, her latest lover. She needs to be the center of attention, requires constant reassurance of her beauty, talent and status. Everything revolves around Masha.
Spike – 20s/Male – Masha’s latest boy toy, Spike is also an (unsuccessful) actor and is as self obsessed as Masha. He works out incessantly, and as such, is usually in a perpetual state of undress, showing off his “assets”, stripping down to his briefs and jumping in the pond. Not the brightest bulb in the pack.
Cassandra – female – Vanya & Sonia’s eccentric maid. An alleged clairvoyant who falls into trances, sees visions, predicts the future and practices voodoo.
The roles of Vanya, Sonia and Nina have already been cast
