There are 3 AEA Principal Contracts available to be cast among the 6 following available roles:
Leading character man with leading man qualities. Mid to late 30’s (possibly could be as old as early 40’s). Renegade, free thinker (play takes place in the 60’s) that would rather “fight the system.” An unemployed writer, who had been previously employed by NBC scripting children’s TV for “The Chuckles the Chipmunk Show” show, but quit out of frustration. Although he’s disgruntled, he has a remarkable sense of humor.
12 year old nephew to Murray. Lives with Murray in a small Manhattan apartment. Precocious to the 10th power. Very well spoken. Like a sophisticated mini-adult. A young looking 13 or 14 year old would work for this part, too.
Very stiff and stuffy. Graduate of N.Y.U’s School of Social work and he is void of humor. Strictly business. Late 20’s to late 30’s.
Pretty woman (mid 20’s to mid 30’s) who wears business clothes that would much more suited to a much older woman. Carries a certain naiveté.
Murray’s older brother and his agent. Dignified, well dressed man, mid 30’s to late 40’s. Straight and narrow, by the book.
Early to late 40’s. Bigger than life. He plays “Chuckles” on the show Murray used to write. Wants Murray back because the show is tanking. A very bad listener.
