Synopsis: 
While waiting for a taxi which fails to arrive, the protagonist, Samuel, must come to terms with his own insecurities about himself as a writer and as a person. Out there in the foggy night, he makes the acquaintance of an elderly person from an ex-USSR nation, who is both happy to enlighten him and to prove him wrong, and Elizabeth, a flashy millennial, who’d like to make him come out of his shell.

Additional Comments: 

Waiting for a Cab is a uniquely artistic short film about nostalgia in a time of contradictions. It merges the best of Absurdist theatre and New Wave cinema, and is centred around a story which takes place solely on a bench, at night.

Audition Date(s): 
January 23rd, 24th, 27th
Character 1 Name: 
Samuel
Character 1 Age: 
25-35
Character 1 Description: 
SAMUEL - Mid twenties, looks and acts ‘male’, all ethnicities welcome. 
Samuel is a writer who is desperate for attention. At a crossroads in his career, or lack thereof, he ponders whether he can keep on moving forward, while at the same time he buries himself in a reality which echoes a still life painting. He is the classic anti-hero of the absurd genre who thinks he has something new to offer.
Character 2 Age: 
between 55 and 75
Character 2 Name: 
Old Man
Character 2 Description: 
‘OLD MAN/WOMAN’ - Somewhere between 50 and 70, open gender, ‘Eastern’ look (think ex-USSR) 
Coarse but not rude, this character represents the first wave immigrant to America who had to leave everything behind for the sake of a ‘better’ future. Younger generations are at odds with practically everything they stood for - which leaves them bitter about their own life.
Character 3 Name: 
Elizabeth
Character 3 Age: 
25-35
Character 3 Description: 
ELIZABETH - Mid twenties, looks and acts ‘female’, with a certain ‘Eastern’ look
 On the outside, she is this foreign classic beauty, whose looks scream privilege. But on the inside, Elizabeth is a true feminist and as such, she knows she can have it all if she wants - knowledge, fame, and power - without sacrificing her integrity, youth and beauty.
Shoot / Perf. Date(s): 
4 days between March 26 and April 1st.
