Casting / Audition Details:

UN-SHAME ON YOU, brings the battle men, women and children across the globe, have with shame, to the stage. Shame vs. Love: because family, children, and love are worth the fight.

No longer able to do its work behind closed doors, shame is put on center stage to wage its battle with three residents of a suburban Empresstown apartment complex.  On the same unseasonably odd Friday night Imara, Wren and Tasha each come face to face with shame, themselves, strong-willed weather, their spouses, and one another.  Do they have the strength to evict shame and wrestle the elements of the night? 

The weight of what each woman confronts nudges her in front of a road paved with life and death choices.

Character Breakdown:

Lead Roles:

Imara Jackson: an extraordinarily talented wife and mother who sidesteps all but one of the unexpected throws life sends her way.

Wren Summers:  other than irritation and bouts of anger, Wren has no emotions. At least she wants to come through her shell of an exterior. Though tired of recurring battles, she has to muster enough will to fight for her life, on a Friday night that threatens to do her in for good.

Tosha Powers: outwardly, the pristine, perfect professional. Inwardly, plagued by a voice that follows her wherever she moves.

Shame: always slithering in and out of homes with the ability to contort into the smallest of places to make its presence felt.

Primary Supporting Roles:

Drew:  caring, loving, and hardworking. Resorts to the office often for the warmth that's lacking at home.

Mr Josephson: a full-of-advice apartment complex groundskeeper who knows everything about everybody, and has his way of going above and beyond what they've asked for, to give them what they need.

David:  caring, loving, and hardworking. Resorts to the office often for the warmth that's lacking at home.

January Jackson: has a way with words that makes everyone lean in to listen, but more than anyone else, longs for his dad to hear him.

Young Tasha: Young Tasha is smart and has big dreams.  She just wishes her mother would care.

Supporting Roles:

Jaz: charming and debonair. Is going to do whatever it takes to make it up and off of the dead-end road he's always known, hopefully with the woman of his dreams.

Retha: Young Tasha's troubled, love-struck mother, torn between mothering her daughter and keeping her daughter's father content and at home.

Toledo Powers:  A loving, doting, husband and father who is wrapped around the finger of his little girl, Tasha Powers.
