In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate - and an impromptu happy hour - and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends. So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers!” to this joyful and surprisingly touching comedy!
Auditions will include cold reading of scenes. Those who audition should bring a calendar to identify any conflicts with rehearsals. Selected actors must be available for all performances.
Character ages are listed – actor ages may vary.
RANDA COVINGTON, 49, is a perfectionist and workaholic from Augusta, Georgia. She is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment that, unfortunately, reveals that she has no life and no idea how to get one.
DOT HAIGLER, 69, is a former high school French teacher from Oklahoma. Still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, she faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch — and all alone.
MARLAFAYE MOSELY, 57, is earthy and boisterous, a good ol’ Texas gal that has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her tom-cattin’ husband to a 23-year-old dental hygienist. The strength of her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to wreak a righteous revenge on her ex.
JINX JENKINS, 53, is new to town and originally from New Orleans. This spunky ball of fire offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she overlooks the fact that she’s the one most in need of sage advice.
