Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour thirty-five years ago. Dancing backwards through time, the older couple retrace their steps to discover their younger selves. Through young Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events which brought them—only briefly—together. This Irish-centric love story blends wit, humor, and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it is past.

Please prepare a dramatic contemporary monologue no longer than one minute in length. Please bring updated resume with headshot. If headshot is not available, a snapshot photo will be accepted. Please come prepared with headshot (or other non-returnable current photo) and résumé, if available.

Role # 1 Caithleen
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Young Irish woman. Has an Irish accent throughout the entire play. Caithleen has an honest and genuine quality that endears her to people. She has the dreams and hopes of any young 20 year old, which she comes to hope that Robbie can help fulfill, while still learning how to navigate her special ability of crossing over time and space.

Role # 2 Robbie
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Young American man. Robbie is full of the American bravado often seen of young men, with a good handful of confidence and swagger. However, we quickly learn that it is more of a cover up to the truth that Robbie is actually a lost soul hoping to make a genuine connection with the transcendent Caithleen.

Role # 3 Cait
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

The older version of Caithleen. Has an Irish accent throughout the entire play. Cait is an older and wiser version of her younger self, and has experienced more of the realities of her special ‘talent’ that has brought her to this point in time. She has come to accept the uniqueness of her situation, while also understanding how the past was a catalyst for the present.

Role # 4 Robert
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

The older version of Robbie. Robert is the older and wiser version of his younger self, who has come to Dublin to reconcile with Cait. His energy, albeit older, should still have a glimmer of the same “go get ‘em” attitude that attracted Caithleen in their youth, while also having grown up and recognized his own part in the failure of their budding romance 30 years prior.
