On the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, a six hundred pound recluse hides away in his apartment eating himself to death. Desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter, he reaches out to her, only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, The Whale tells the story of a man’s last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.

Seeking:

CHARLIE:
40 – 50. Male. Any ethnicity. A morbidly obese man (somewhere around 650 lbs) who is dying of congestive heart failure throughout the play. He’s been wasting away for years, ever since giving up on himself since the death of his partner. But however awful his life has become, he has put all of his hopes and optimism on his daughter, who he hasn’t seen in seventeen years. A very insightful, intelligent, well-educated man who is sensitive, gentle, and thoughtful. Actors should be over 200 lbs. and have weight apparent in their face and neck. Actor must be in good physical condition to handle the requirements of the costume or be able to walk and get up and down from sofa if of closer to actual weight.

ELLIE:
19. Female. Any ethnicity. Charlie’s daughter whom he hasn’t seen since she was a baby. A deeply intelligent, deeply cynical teenager who feels—probably accurately—that she is always the smartest person in the world. Very manipulative and shrewd, has convinced herself that she doesn’t care about her ailing father. Never valley-girl or sarcastic and eye-rolling, Ellie doesn’t say things to be mean, she says them because they are true.

LIZ:
Late 30s – 40s. Female. Any ethnicity. Charlie’s best friend. A working-class nurse who does not sugar coat her feelings or reactions. She is fiercely protective of Charlie but also enables his destructive eating behavior. She is an ex-Mormon who is no longer a fan of the Church. She’s funny, warm and down to earth but has an angry reactive side that is sometimes difficult to control.

ELDER THOMAS:
Early 20s. Male. Any ethnicity. A Mormon missionary who happens upon Charlie just as he has his first cardiac episode. A somewhat naïve, innocent young man who just wants to see Mormonism help one person before he ends his mission. He makes a big effort to be a good Mormon boy, but he has his secrets.

MARY:
THIS ROLE HAS BEEN CAST.
