Casting “As Bees in Honey Drown,” a play.
Project description: Evan Wyler, a young gay writer with a breakout debut novel, has just appeared shirtless in a magazine to sell his much-discussed book, and with that, he’s become the next ‘hot, young thing.’ He’s willing to do anything to hopefully climb to success – to change his name from one that sounds too Jewish, to meet with whoever will give him the right kind of attention, and yes, to use his potential sex appeal to sell some copies. Enter the outrageously fashionable and despicably wealthy Alexa Vere de Vere, a socialite with seemingly every connection in the book, who wants Evan to write the screenplay for her autobiographical film. He follows her into life for a few days as she styles him into a man of a dignified appeal much like her own and pays Evan’s way through a whirlwind tour of starlets and producers, the A-listers and those about to become them.
The role of Evan Wyler has been pre-cast. All other roles are open.
