THE BODY OF AN AMERICAN by Dan O’Brien
Rehearsals start: October 9/10, 2017
Previews: November 2-3
Closes: December 9
Two actors play all the roles here: ideally an actor in his 30s who plays Dan most of the time, and an actor around 50 to mostly play Paul.
The older of these two actors has the first line of the play, and with each new character-heading— even when it’s the same character—the actors alternate.
Dan – 30’s
Paul – 50’s
