What We Are Looking For:
6 Actors Play 18 Roles: 3 Women, 3 Men
What To Bring:
No preparation necessary, COLD READ from the script.
Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. It's 1952: America's on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower's on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy's on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy's daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor—or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.
Directed by: Rebecca Schilling
PERFORMANCE DATES: October 5-21, 2018
Notes: The characters Maggie and Frank will need a believable Boston accent, and one older gentleman (Borchevsky) should have a thick Russian accent. Hint: Utilize YouTube to quickly learn some of the tricks in learning these accents.
There are three primary couples of three different ages. Most of the actors will actually play numerous other characters as well, which should be a lot of fun for all of the actors cast.
