The play is about the relationship between Louise Brooks and G.W. Pabst that led to the making of "Pandora's Box" in 1928/9. It is split between 2 periods - 1928, when the film was being made in Berlin, and 1955, when LB was rediscovered living in New York after decades in obscurity. I need actors for:
James Card (an American who discovered Brooks living in poverty in New York in 1955 and got her back out into the world - this is a 2-hander between Brooks and Card), who was about 40;
Fritz Kortner (German actor who played LB's lover in the film), aged 38-ish;
G.W. Pabst, aged about 45;
and B.P.Schulberg, manager of Paramount film in Hollywood, who hired and fired LB in the 1920s.
Schulberg only has one scene and Kortner's part is relatively small, so the same actor could do both of them - hence 3/4 actors.
Production will be profit-share, though obviously I can't speculate on how much that will be (well below Equity rates I should think), though if we have a tour afterwards that will improve.
