3 Women Waiting (audition time; 5:40PM-6:20PM)
written by Marissa Carpio
directed by Esther Ko

– PERSON A 8-years old, or actress in early 20’s who can play 8-years old. Precocious and wise in her unsophisticated innocence.
– PERSON B 34-years old, or can play 34-years old. Smart, maybe too smart, and overconfident, which of course, masks an insecurity hidden deep down.
– PERSON C 80-years old, or actress in late 20’s/early 30’s who can play 80-years old. Bitter, but still has a sense of humor about life, which comes out as sarcasm.
All characters are Asian-American. Filipino-American, if possible.
