Audition Description

Mahmoud and Raheleh along with their five-year-old daughter, Saba, immigrate to Vermont, US to start a new life. However, the news of Saba going permanently blind due to a rare cancer dampens their relationship. At the same time hardships of migration and adopting to a new environment, as well as Mahmoud's developing Diabetes tear up their marriage and they end up getting divorced. Many years pass. Mahmoud lives with Saba. Raheleh has now remarried to Shahin, the owner of a restaurant at which Mahmoud worked at when they first moved to the US. Saba has lost one eye due to her illness and is now exploring a romantic relationship with her childhood friend Kyla. Saba and Kyla have been consuming drugs mainly Fentanyl. Saba's addiction has become a major conflict for Mahmoud, and due to the progress of his Diabetes and lack of support from Raheleh, he finds it extremely challenging to help her recover. On the other hand, Mahmoud who through all these years relied on Khazayi as a friend and brother, now discovers that he breached his trust.

  • Role #1 - Raheleh

    Principal Role. Iranian, looking for performers who speak fluent Farsi**. Mahmoud's wife, Saba's mother – she somehow feels that her husband blames her for the cancer in her daughter's eye. She immigrated to US with her family to find a better life, but the tension between her and husband only worsened. She became somewhat bitter with life, not being able to deal with adjusting to new country/culture/language, hating her job at Shahin's pizzeria and mostly not being able to connect to her husband. She feels some resentment to him. She is dramatic and sensitive and she can't handle being in the hospital while her daughter is getting a surgery. Over time, Raheleh left Mahmoud for Shahin and they had another child – Liam.

  • Role #2 - Khayazi

    Principal Role. Iranian, looking for performers who speak fluent Farsi** Khayazi is a mafia boss type. He owns a car rug cleaning shop, where in the back of it he runs a drug distribution operation. He is sort of a Robin Hood – he makes a lot of money from dirty work but he runs a charity where he helps people; he owns apartments occupied by his immigrant employees that he houses them at a very low rent, he feeds everyone and is warm and supportive. Who could believe that the source of this goodness comes from an illegal operation. It's because of his drug business and few irresponsible workers that Saba gets exposed and eventually addicted to drugs.
