Auditions The Porch

Auditions for QP’s next production, The Porch by local playwright Jack Neary are:

Sunday and Monday, November 13 and 14, 2016 – at 7 PM at QP Theater.

The play is about real people and enduring friendships. It is drop-dead funny, heartbreaking and triumphant. Broadway World said it is “as colorful as relatives at a family reunion. The Porch is to Eastern Massachusetts what Steel Magnolias is to northwest Louisiana.” 

It’s Labor Day weekend, 2002. We are on Alma’s front porch in an urban neighborhood north of Boston. Alma, her friends Gert and Marjorie, along with Gert’s husband Leo, and Marjorie’s husband Pat discuss little things that happened in their lives. In the end, Alma’s revelation stuns her friends and solidifies their friendship.

Readings from the script. Actors of all “mature” age ranges are encouraged to audition who can approximate people in their 60s or 70s. Cast includes 3 women and 2 men.


Gert – a woman around 70; brash, blunt; opinionated

Alma – also around 70; naive, curious, a little hard of hearing

Marjorie – around 70; stable, educated, a calming influence

Leo – around 70, Gert’s husband; apprehensive, edgy

Pat – around 70, Marjorie’s husband, grounded, a bit lethargic

PRODUCTION DATES: January 27, 28 and February 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 2017
