ROLES AVAILABLE:

 

WILLIAM GILLETTE:40-55, This actual person in history wrote the Sherlock Holmes play in collaboration with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and starred in it with enormous success. In this play he plays himself and oft times takes on Sherlock characteristics as his guests are mysteriously murdered. He is solid, serious and yet must know comedy in this quick-paced farce.

MARTHA GILLETTE: 70-79, Gillette's dotty mother, elegant though a bit foggy, never shies away from a fight, always willing to lob a criticism when necessary, all the same Martha is loyal to Gillette and his gang of theatrical misfits; must have great comic chops.

FELIX GEISEL: 40-45, must have great comic chops and be physically strong, the company's character actor, histrionic & arch.

MADGE GEISEL: 40-45, wry and outspoken, think Rosalind Russell, a lifelong theatrical like her husband Felix, is game for anything but back her into a corner and she will come out swinging; must have great comic chops.

SIMON BRIGHT: 40-49, he mangenue of the company, an enthusiastic young man, eager to please and find success, a bit of a naïf, can occasionally be overly sensitive.

AGGIE WHEELER: Female 25, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, the ingénue, good-natured, kind, has had tragedy in her past though she seems to have dealt with it well and even moved on, recently married to Simon (they make a charming and wonderful couple); actress needs to have a dark side.

INSPECTOR GORING: Female, 40-59, English, eccentric, completely one of a kind, witty & incisive then suddenly lost & dim, she is disarming in her inability to be defined, always off the mark yet never far from the truth, somehow she always gets her man, wonderful opportunity for a character actress; must have great comic chops.

DARIA CHASE: Male or Female, 30-50
