**If you are auditioning for the role of Chris, please prepare BOTH sides.
Ten years ago, Ken and Chris were teach and student with a questionable relationship – one that Ken has never gotten over. Now, they are principal and teacher, and a suspiciously high grade prompts a jealous Ken to grill Chris, until the young teacher is forced to confront the past–as well as the present. By casting both teacher and student diversely and with both male and female actors, the play forces audience members to identify and examine their own internal biases. And even if they have none, the play still offers an exploration of humanity, power, and boundaries.
T. Schreiber Studio values diversity in casting. There is flexibility in age range for some of the roles listed. We encourage actors of all backgrounds to audition.
