Now Casting: Two Young Actors for LA Premiere of Award-Winning Play “I and You” at Fountain Theatre

I AND YOU imageThe Fountain Theatre is now seeking two young actors for the lead roles in the funny and heartfelt award-winning new play I and You by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Robin Larsen.

STORYLINE: Caroline is sick and hasn’t been to school in months. Anthony suddenly arrives at her door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s ‘Leaves of Grass’ and an urgent assignment from their high school lit teacher. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, the poetry assignment unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. Winner of the 2014 Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award and finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Playwrighting Prize, I AND YOU is a funny and haunting play about youth, life, love, and the strange transcendent connections between us all.

Seeking two strong, trained, skilled young stage actors who can carry a play.

ANTHONY – 17 years old. African American. High school basketball player. A team player, a nice guy. Wise beyond his years, inquisitive and open. He is serious about his studies, and when he likes something (jazz music), he’s all in. Cute, but doesn’t know it, not really good around the girls.

CAROLINE –  17 years old. Ethnicity open. She is sick, has been on and off since she was a little girl. She is waiting for a liver transplant, but doesn’t look ill, just frumpy. She doesn’t go out, her connection to the outside world is social media. She is cynical, over it, does not let a stray feeling near the surface, which masks a vulnerable core. She has an artist’s soul.
