Lifeline – Equity Principal Auditions

WHO: Abingdon Theatre Company


Ken Salmon: 
30s. Unproduced playwright. Melancholy and seemingly fragile, but capable of ironic humor and sudden bursts of enthusiasm. 
Peter Vitale: 
40s-50s. Ken's landlord. Divorced, unemployed construction foreman. Active in community youth activities. Rough-edged, with an expansive, good-humored manner. 
Wendy Salmon: 
30s. Ken's wife. Stunningly beautiful. We see her only though a series of e-mail messages. 
Seamus Yoshida: 
Half-Japanese, half-Irish man, 40s-50s. Pete's best friend. Owner of a jewelry store. Married, but unfaithful to his wife. Blunt and cynical. 
Phyllis Salmon: 
50s-60s. Ken's mother, an interior designer. On the surface, she is sophisticated, unsentimental, and emotionally tough.
