GENRE: Western / Family Drama

SYNOPSIS: The family matriarch dies, leaving behind a contested inheritance. And even worse: the will cannot be located.

 NON-UNION / PAYMENT will be discussed during the audition.

SAFETY: Each participant will be required to read and sign a legal document detailing the enforcement of safety measures related to the COVID-19 Pandemic.


LUCY: The one and only daughter of the family. After leaving the family years earlier in the wake of disagreements and tensions, she returns not quite as the daughter and sister they remember. (Late teens / early 20’s, African American, must be comfortable handling a prop gun)

RICHARD: The Father, who is emotionally damaged due to a fraught relationship with his late mother. At the same time, his short temper flashes through on occasion. (Late 40s / Early 50s, African American).

WILMA: The Mother, who is the rock of the family. She is a woman of few words, yet shows the utmost concern for the integrity of the family. (Late 40s / Early 50s, African American).
