Applications to this casting call require:
  • A phone number

Patrick

Lean, red-brown/fair-haired, Caucasian.
Patrick is troubled by his estranged relationship with his father. He makes
attempts to maintain an air of confidence and weariness while in his company,
but is actually wrought with desperation and anxiety. He is also somewhat
naïve, and possibly too ready to put his trust in others.

Males, aged 25 to 30 from Queensland, Australia

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience
  • Languages spoken: English

Philip

Medium build, fair-haired, Caucasian.
Philip is a cold, harsh man. He is fuelled by cigarettes and a silent anger.
He is abrasive, believes himself a victim of his surroundings (rather than the
opposite), and seems somewhat at home in the claustrophobia of a prison
cell.

Males, aged 45 to 50 from Queensland, Australia

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience
  • Languages spoken: English

William

Medium build, fair-haired, Caucasian.
William is weary of the world and its dangers. He is quietly intelligent, well-
spoken, and patient. He has not always been this way, however; he has an
alleged history of violence, alcoholism, and abuse.

Males, aged 65 to 70 from Queensland, Australia

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience

Anne

Lean, red-brown/fair-hared, Caucasian.
Anne is a tired woman, born and raised in the heat and dust of the Australian
countryside. She is patient like her father-in-law, but feels a huge burden of
responsibility in her violently alcoholic husband.

Females, aged 30 to 35 from Queensland, Australia

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience

Patrick (Teenager)

Lean, red-brown/fair-haired, Caucasian.

Patrick is a quiet, softly-spoken child who experiences a firmer and more
beneficial relationship with his grandfather than with his father, who is
abusively alcoholic. Patrick is intelligent for his age, but doesn’t say much. He has seen his
father’s abusive ways slowly torment his mother, and despises him for it. He
clings to the memory of his grandfather, a kinder, more patient man.

We are after a young looking 18 year old.
