About “The Outsiders”
Penned down by Peter Mattei, the award winning playwright revolves around a family that lives by its own laws.
The Farrells live in the Shay Mountain, rural and disconnected from the world full of regular people and their lives. They not only live away from the modern society but also want to abide by their own laws and need no interference whatsoever.
Their peace is threatened by a mining firm that issues a notice of evacuation. How did they get to know of what the notice meant since they weren’t literate is another story of transgression and animosity for the control. One of them had left the society to taste the modern society and had learnt a bit from it which had already created a rift in the battle of control and inheritance of power.
So the Farrells need to prepare for the battle coming their way and must prepare for anything and everything. The second season of Outsiders is filming in Pittsburgh area and for that, some of the roles are required by the casting directors for several of its scenes.
The Non Speaking Roles
The non speaking roles which are required by the casting directors for Outsiders season 2, are:
- Shay Mountain Folk
- Small Town Kentucky Folks
The interested candidates must be elated as they have ample time to grow their hair and beards to pull off the look of Shay Mountain folks, if that is what you want to be casted as in the television show.
