Sixteen years ago, Walter Griffin flew high above the earth in a lawn chair suspended by weather balloons. Now he tinkers obsessively with failed inventions, trying to recapture his 15 minutes of fame while his disillusioned wife Helen supports the family and his teenage son Mikey languishes.

The director is seeking males ages 15 to 50 and females age 16 to 55. Prepare a contemporary comedic monologue (up to two minutes in length) or read from the script. Monologues need not be memorized.

Up will be performed November 29 – December 2, and December 6 – 9, at Studio One.
