What I'm looking for:

Actors who are inspired by the script and who are daring enough to experiment and collaborate with me on our vision of these characters. This project demands dedication and effort, but I have a lot of faith that it will be a very rewarding acting experience. Note: Theodore and Double are played by the same person.
