Director - TBD
California, 1980

Herb - (40s-50s) Not very successful Hollywood writer with perpetual writer’s block. Big on heart and humor. Short on the skills needed to reconnect with his estranged daughter.

Libby - (19) A strong, high-spirited girl from New York, who hitchhikes across the country to “be in pictures.” Her actual motive is to connect with her estranged father. She has an energy, vitality, and sharp sense of humor. (Possible NY dialect)

Steffy - (40s) A single-mother, with a positive, comforting energy whose on-again, off-again relationship with Herb is starting not to be enough for her.

THE ANGEL NEXT DOOR - by Paul Slade Smith
Director - TBD
Newport, RI, 1948

Charlotte Sanders - (40s-60s) A successful Broadway playwright. Smart, resourceful, optimistic.

Oliver Adams - (early 20s) A young novelist. Sweet, sincere, full of promise, still unsure of himself.

Arthur Sanders - (40s-60s) Charlotte's husband and co-playwright. A pessimist to her optimist, delighted to be her foil.

Olga Molnar - (40s-70s) The Housekeeper. Has a nebulous Eastern European accent. An unabashedly unhelpful servant

Margot Bell - (mid-late 20s) A Broadway singer and actress easily cast as the ingenue, but realizing she's wiser and stronger than the characters she plays.

Victor Pratt - (mid-late 30s) A Broadway leading man - and an idiot. Impressively self-involved and, in his mind, the handsomest, sexiest, manliest man on Broadway. Always a beat behind.

Doris West - (20s-30s) Enid’s friend and roommate. A bit of a romantic. Supportive and protective of Enid.

Dick Lane - (30’s) Hasn’t yet found his confidence. Sincere, honest.

Gerald Strange - (30s-40s) - a confident, charming man who looks like someone who has lived an outdoor life. He has a rather disarming manner.
