Jackalope Theatre is asking for submissions for understudies for the world premiere of LIFE ON PAPER by Kenneth Lin, Directed by Gus Menary.
After his proof for the Riemanm Hypothesis (one of the world's last great math puzzles) disastrously flames out, Mitch Bloom, a brilliant mathematician finds himself working as a consultant using complex algorithms to set the value of human lives in wrongful death cases. His knack for de-valuing lives has made him the darling of the insurance companies, but what will he do when the wrongful death of a billionaire philanthropist crosses his desk, and the future of a small town hangs in the balance?
MITCH BLOOM (30's), slight man of intellectual intensity.
IDA WATKINS (30's), sharp, small town girl, all grown up and taking the reins of the local savings and loan. *guaranteed performance date*
MICHAEL WATKINS (30's), Ida's husband. An artist. Tall and very handsome.
Pay: $150 stipend and $25 per show you go on.
