Breakdown

By Jon Robin Baitz
Directed by Sheila Ivy Traister

  • Rehearsal begins March 10, 2019
  • Production runs March 28–April 28, 2019
    (Thursdays–Saturdays, 7:00pm; Sundays, 2:00pm; No performances the week of April 18–21)

Roles Available

  • Lyman Wyeth: (Late 50s–late 60s): Kind and gentle patriarch. A Hollywood B actor with some celebrity and charm who turned that into political influence. He is conservative but with a sense of humor about himself and a deep love for his family. “He is sturdy in the way of old Californians of a particular type.”
  • Polly Wyeth: (Late 50s to late 60s) Lyman’s wife. Graceful and acerbic matriarch. She has been active for decades in the Republican Party. She is deeply devoted to the preservation of her social standing, her family and the health of her husband. “Elegant and forthright and whip-smart.”
  • Brooke Wyeth: (Mid 30s to 40s) Lyman and Polly’s adult daughter. She is a professional writer who has been living in New York after a mental breakdown. Her tortured relationship with her family has centered on her opposing Liberal political views. “An attractive and dry woman.”
  • Trip Wyeth: (Late 20s to mid 30s) Brooke’s brother. Witty and self-effacing. He is a TV producer for reality TV — in a family obsessed with his intellectual, older sister’s mental health. He assumes the role of second banana with grace. “A bright, funny man.”
  • Silda Grauman: (late 50s to early 70s) Polly’s sister. Creative, fragile, and funny. A former B movie writer, and the Bohemian, polar opposite of her sister. She is fresh out of rehab and repays the support of the conservative Wyeths by joining Brooke in some liberal needling of her parents. “A mess. No makeup, hair disheveled. She wears a muumuu and carries a pill case marked with the days of the week.”
