Casting call for “Couples” by Rich Orloff
Couples is a dynamic and relevant play, consisting of eight 2 person scenes. Every couple has a different story; from the professor and teacher whose taboo relationship causes a scandal, to the one-night stand that could lead to something more, or the siblings with differing opinions on the mother who raised them. Couples is a heartfelt, often hilarious, always poignant exploration of relationships from all walks of life.
