Peg and Irv, two quirky but endearing baby-boomers, bravely venture into the world of modern dating. But when these opposites attract, they discover love isn’t any easier the second time around. Winner of the Riva Shiner Comedy Award, KALAMAZOO is a romantic comedy about life’s second act and learning you’re never too old to be young.
Peg – female, 70’s, Irish-American. Sweet and naive but not dumb, nor a shrinking violet. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body (especially important to remember when she makes off-colour or anti-Semitic remarks), but she isn’t afraid to stand up for herself. She’s an innocent in a complicated world.
Irving – male, 70’s, East Coast Jewish. Irving is a self-made man and a funny guy, but not a borscht-belt comedian. His veneer can be a little abrupt, but underneath he’s an open, tender-hearted man. He’s an explorer is a new world.
Audition Material to be distributed at audition.
Begin week of April 22, time depending on availability of actors – 2 to 3 times a week.
