Pomona

by Alistair McDowall
Director: Jason Salmon

Performances: June 11-15, 2019
First rehearsal: April 7, 2019

As Ollie ventures further into the shadowy Pomona, in search of her missing sister, she discovers that some questions are best left unasked. This unnerving mix of urban nightmare and sci-fi thriller challenges our perceptions of what is real and asks just how much are we willing to overlook for a quiet life.

This often tense and dark piece will require actors that are comfortable working with very challenging subject matter. Actors of any age and ethnicity will be considered for all roles.

Characters:

Ollie Female. Identical twin. Her sister and best friend is missing. Nervous and with trepidation she has come to Pomona after all other leads have gone cold
Fay Female. Has come to Pomona to escape. Inquisitive, caring. Takes Ollie under her wing.
Gale Female. Tough and measured. Presides over Pomona; a dangerous woman if crossed.
Keaton Female. Quiet, enigmatic and unassuming.
Zeppo Male. Energetic, charismatic, owns most of the city. Is a fixer for the right price.
Charlie Male. Security guard at Pomona. Fantasist, dreamer. HP Lovecraft and RPG fanboy.
Moe Male. Security guard at Pomona. He’s been around the block, has a troubled past. Now seeking redemption. Looks out for the more naïve Charlie.

The playing ages of the actors are flexible, although Ollie should be younger than Fay and Gale. Charlie needs to be feasibly younger than Moe.
