Roles : 4 Men 5 Women
Seeking an ethnically diverse cast of male and female actors to play roles from 20s to 80s. All ages indicated are suggested playing ages; actors younger or older than the age indicated should not be discouraged from auditioning. All characters, except Sylvie, are British, and will perform with a British accent. Some characters will appear in underwear or lingerie.
|| Mid 20s to mid 50s F - A sophisticated woman; stylishly reserved. Loving and loyal wife to Philip. Not as prim as Philip is straight-laced. Appears in lingerie.
||Mid 20s to mid 30s M - London's latest fashionable interior designer; a virile male lurks beneath his artsy, camp exterior. Appears in his boxers.
||Early to mid 20s F - The Markham's gorgeous Swiss au pair with a hearty accent; she is the focus of Alistair's attention. Appears in a short nightie onstage.
||Mid 20s to mid 50s F - Joanna's friend and longsuffering wife of Henry. Vivacious and slightly scatter-brained, she is tired of being the only faithful partner in her marriage.
||Mid 20s to mid 50s M - An overworked children's book publisher and Joanna's husband. Philip is a pleasant and studious man; a bit straight-laced; a bit timid. He is very conservative and old-fashioned.
||Mid 20s to mid 50s M - Philip's successful (and overbearing) business partner and married to Linda. He is full of masculine confidence and swagger. He is an unrepentant philanderer; a lecherous dog.
||Mid 20s to mid 50s M - Walter is a stiff, slightly stuffy and painfully shy. Linda's new love interest; she has chosen to seduce Walter in retaliation for Henry’s wandering ways.
|Olive Harriet Smythe:
|| Mid 40s to mid 80s F - An eccentric, dog-loving, imposing, no-sex-please prudish, frumpy spinster with a somewhat butterfly mind. Miss Smythe is a very successful author of children's books who is looking for a new publisher.
|Felicity Jane Wilkinson:
||Mid to late 20s F - A phone operator and Henry's new love interest. A bit on the kooky side; a bit of a tart, loose but not trashy. Felicity wears large horn-rimmed glasses and is quick to strip down to her underwear. Runs around wrapped only in a sheet.
