Performances: January 17th – February 2nd, 2019.

Characters:
Peter (Male)
The excitable author of a new play, “The Golden Egg;” the type who sincerely believes that ”you can write a serious play for Broadway and still have a place in the Hamptons.”

Julia (Female)
The extremely wealthy, neophyte producer of the play; enthusiastic and passionate devotee of ”the theatre,” charmingly dotty and benevolent dilettante, not the most self-aware woman in the world, such as when explaining the concept of ”breaking a leg” to a roomful of seasoned theatre people.

James (Male)
A witty, sarcastic, middling sitcom star; has been best friends with Peter since their off-off Broadway days, egotistical but insecure, turned down the lead in “The Golden Egg” to remain on his (just cancelled) television series, secretly thrilled with the terrible reviews the play receives.

Virginia (Female)
he pill-popping, Tony-winning leading lady of the play; trying to resurrect her career by returning to Broadway after a series of movie flops and more than a few cocaine hits.

Frank (Male)
the angst-ridden, boy-wonder/enfant terrible, British-by-way-of New Jersey director of “The Golden Egg;” a self-deprecating almost to the point of self-loathing sort who, after a string of theatrical successes, longs for the flop that will reveal him to be the poseur he claims he actually is. He is prone to bouts of histrionics and kleptomania.

Ira (Male)
A fawning, sycophantic, two-faced drama critic who is a closet playwright, skewers the theatre world he desperately wants to be a part of.

Gus (Male)
An actor/waiter hired to work the party; just off the bus from Kansas, wide-eyed and naïve, star-struck and impressionable, extremely enthusiastic.

Adult Actors of all ethnicities are encouraged to attend.
