Character Summary:
 
4M - (30's - 60's)
3F - (20's - 40's)
 
Characters:
 
She: An actress who has come back to the theatre after 20 years. She is attractive, outgoing and keen, but nervous about her comeback to a corny 1930's play., especially when her romantic male lead turns out to be her former lover. A major role for a very experienced actor. Age range mid 40's.
 
He: An actor who dwells on reigniting his long past romance with She, who he has just been reunited with by way of casting in a corny play. He often confuses the characters in the "play within a play" with real life, as She does also. He is dashing and knows it. A major role for an experienced actor. Age: 40 -50.
 
Director - Somewhat neurotic and eager to please he minimally "directs" and fancies himself as a playwright. A significant role. Age range 30's - 60's.
 
Kevin - who is the Reader and also plays the understudy, the doctor, the butler and the pimp. He is not a great actor in any of these roles and is especially uncomfortable standing in for "He" in romantic kissing scenes. Age range 30's to 50's. A significant role.
 
Husband / Harrison - a sincere man, who plays the "Husband" in the initial play within the play, and later plays Harrison, the real life husband of She. He is a safe and forgiving man to whom She eventualy, and fondly, returns, A moderate role.
 
Millie/Maid/Angela - multiple character roles, including She's 16 y.o. daughter, who has a real attitude. Several very meaty speeches, A small to moderate but challenging role. Age 20's but also able to play 16 y.o. Angela.
 
Millicent?Laurie - mostly plays Laurie, "He's" school teacher girlfriend. She is a sincere and naiive young woman, who is spiritual and takes a while to realise she has been dumped. A small but meaty role. Age late 20's - 30's.
 
All actors will be involved in the theatre "business" in the early scenes.
 
Rehearsals Commitment:
 
Commit to 3 rehearsals per week (two week nights and a Sunday). Auditions are by appointment and will be closed. Auditionees should be familiar with the script and standard American accents will be required. Some direction responses will be assessed. Lead roles require actors to convincingly transition from "actors" to characters in the play within the play. 
 
Synopsis:

Two long separated former lovers, both professional actors are thrust together when cast in a 1930's play - as former lovers. She is married to Harrison and has a daughter, Angela. He has a school teacher girlfriend Laurie. She plays Ada who is dying and calls for her former lover Johnny, played by He, reigniting the feelings they once had for one another, just like the characters in the "play". The rehearsal and staging with the director and fellow actors leads to hilarious moments. The second act reveals more serious play within a play, leading to She and He confronting their real life situation. A mix of hilarity, confusion, and ultimately an awakening to reality.
