Very good at thinking on his feet, he is cold and calculating, while giving off the demeanor of warmth and friendliness.

Max: M. late 20s/30s. American. An crime writer for television, he is having an affair with Margot and truly loves her. While he is a gentleman, he can be fiery and speak his mind if the situation requires it. A genuine good guy.

Margot: F. Mid 20s/early 30s. British. An heiress, and the wife of Tony. While she conforms to the societal standards of the 50s, she has been having an affair with Max. Fun loving and trusting, but can be a bit sarcastic and overbearing if the situation calls for it. Fight choreography required.

Hubbard: M. 30s/40s. British. The Chief Inspector, Hubbard is immediately able to tell that not everything is as it seems with the case. He is calm and professional, a true British gentleman. Excited by the idea of solving a case.

Lesgate: M. late 20s/30s. British. A former classmate of Tony’s at Cambridge. He has gone from educated student to petty criminal, mostly focusing in conning older women out of their money. While he believes he is a good criminal, he is easily able to be blackmailed. Nervous & jittery, unsuccessfully attempts to be suave and debonair. Fight choreography required.

Up next: Next Fall

Next Fall Poster FinalNext Fall
By Geoffrey Nauffts

Next Fall takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke, Next Fall goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.

Directed by Tara Williams & Clint Ibele
Cast:
Adam – Brian Anderson
Luke – Matthew Wilson
Holly – Lauren Carr
Brandon – Michael Monks
Arlene – Tracy M. Schoster
Butch – Allen R. Middleton

Beauty Queen of Leenane

BeautyQueen_ArtOnlyThe Beauty Queen of Leenane
By Martin McDonagh

Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, The Beauty Queen Of Leenane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother, whose interference in Maureen’s first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play’s terrifying dénouement.

 “The opening night audience was fixated on the action, audibly responding to what was happening on stage with gasps, laughs, and genuine emotion. Any play that can do that is magic.” – The Sappy Critic
