The Comparables

by Laura Schellhardt


Bette, Monica and Iris are high-end real estate agents whose sales pitches are as hard and polished as their nails. CEO Bette, the original glass ceiling crasher, is on the verge of debuting a reality television show designed to introduce a whole new audience of women to her no–holds-barred view of business. When her reputation takes a hit, all three are faced with a choice—band together to save the agency or fend for themselves. Schellhardt’s dark comedy begs the question: is there more than one way for women to do business?

The 5 & Dime is committed to casting considerations which reflect the diversity of the people of Jacksonville, while recognizing that a specific gender, ethnicity and age is often a crucial aspect of a particular role or of the piece as a whole. We will include gender, ethnicity and age in the breakdown, where needed, and encourage all actors to audition where none is stated.


Character Breakdown

Iris: female, age 20s-30s

Broker in her late 20s, any ethnicity. Appears inexperienced but ambitious, ruthless, and knows how to use her assets.

Monica: female, age 30s-40s

Broker in her late 30s, any ethnicity. Dependable, idealistic beneath a veneer of experience.

Bette: female, age 50s-60s

Broker in her later 50s-early 60s, any ethnicity. The boss. A formidable woman with charisma and momentum.
