“It’s Only a Play”
By Terrence McNally
Assistant Directed by
Director Karen Abbatiello seeking:
5 Males (Playing Ages 25 – 60)
2 Females (Playing Ages 25-35, 50-70)
An egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series.
James’s former best friend. The nervous and excitable playwright, desperate to reach the level and status of iconic playwrights of the past.
A first-time producer of the Broadway play The Golden Egg and one of the few genuinely nice people in the group.
Insecure theater critic with writing aspirations of his own. Humors himself with jokes that he accentuates with a very unique laugh.
The egomaniacal, “genius” British director.
Dissolute star of the play: She wears an ankle monitor and drinks and snorts cocaine throughout.
Gus P. Head
Polite, somewhat niave farm boy who checks the coats and hats but has aspirations for a Broadway career. Has a beautiful singing voice which he demonstrates for a calming effect.
Readings will be from the script.
