Significant Other

By Joshua Harmon
Directed by Ron Mulligan

SYNOPSIS: Jordan Berman would love to be in love, but that’s easier said than done. So until he meets Mr. Right, he wards off lonely nights with his trio of close girlfriends. But as singles’ nights turn into bachelorette parties, Jordan discovers that the only thing harder than finding love is supporting the loved ones around you when they do.

Director Ron Mulligan seeks 3 men and 4 women, all in their 20s-30s except one woman in her sixties, for this comedy. The director is open to casting all ethnicities in all roles. “Significant Other” is a play for mature audiences.
