Cold read from script. No monologue required. ALL ROLES ARE OPEN.
All of the characters in this play are funny. Each actor has to have strong comedic timing.
CHRIS GORMAN – (Female, 30 – 50’s) Another lawyer, married to Ken. Beautiful, easily flustered. Frantically tries to maintain normalcy at the party. Has recently quit smoking, which drives her to drink a bit more.
LENNY GANZ – (Male, 30 – 50’s) – A wealthy accountant, distraught over the recent destruction over his new car. Starts the show with an extreme case of whiplash. Intolerant of the gossipy-lifestyle that he is often involved in.
CLAIRE GANZ – (Female, 25 – 40’s) – Lenny’s wife. Very concerned with appearances (hers and others’). Starts the play with a swollen lip. Likes to gossip.

OFFICER WELCH – (Male or Female, 30-50) – A city police officer having a rough night. Does not tolerate lying. Sees through the “classy” façade that these high-society types put up.
