Male and female actors of all ages and types for About Face Theatre's 2019 production of DADA WOOF PAPA HOT. See breakdown for details.
DADA WOOF PAPA HOT by Peter Parnell Directed by AFT Artistic Associate Keira Fromm Rehearsal/Performance Dates: 12/10/18-2/16/18
ALAN Late 40's/Early-50s. Gay. A journalist whose anxieties about being a father to his 3 year old daughter reflect his own ambivalence and insecurities. Witty, self-deprecating, just barely in touch with his own repressed anger.
ROB 40s. Alan’s husband. A psychiatrist in private practice who is far more comfortable with being a father. A great listener, who can be judgmental but also warmly accepting of others’ neuroses, especially Alan’s.
SCOTT 30s. A gay dad whose son is the same age as Alan and Rob’s daughter. Scott works in private equity, is a bit buttoned-down, keeps his emotions in tight check.
JASON 30s. Scott’s husband. An abstract painter who is more relaxed than Scott, has an easy seductive charm, and a slight air of mystery about him. Attractive, sexy.
