After years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is happy to return to the comfort of his home in Connecticut. Unfortunately, almost nothing is as he remembered it. The entire house is tilted at a distinct angle, the dog has been missing for several years and Avery’s grandmother, who everyone thought was dead, is still alive and kicking. Forced to either accept the oddities of his family or leave them behind, 37 Postcards suggests that you can, in fact, go home again…
You just never know what you’re going to find.

This will be a group audition so please arrive at the beginning of the session. No preparation is required. You will be given excerpts from the play to read and you may also be asked to do a cold read of a short monologue.
Avery Sutton – late 20’s to early 30’s, bright, likable, perhaps a bit nerdy
Evelyn Sutton – Avery’s mother, 50’s, lovely and gracious, somewhat oblivious to everything around her
Stanford P. Sutton – Avery’s father, late 50’s, great warmth and dignity, also somewhat oblivious but perhaps by choice
Aunt Ester – Evelyn’s sister, 40’s, the ultimate homemaker, sweet but with a mischievous side, a bit daft but surprisingly insightful
Gillian Moore – Avery’s fiancée, 20’s, beautiful, sweet but with an edge, a rhinestone wanting to be a diamond
Nana – Avery’s grandmother, 97 years old, half-deaf, half-blind and foul-mouthed! The actor playing this role may be any age as they will need to be aged up with make-up and/or prosthetics
