From acclaimed playwright, Nicky Silver (THE LYONS, PTERODACTYLS, THE FOOD CHAIN, and RAISED IN CAPTIVITY). Audrey Langham - a celebrated actress - unravels completely while preparing for a new production of MEDEA. With nowhere else to go, she descends upon her married daughter for a summer by the sea. She is not, however, greeted with confetti and champagne. Her arrival sets off a chain of events alternately hilarious and harrowing.


Mid 30s-mid 40s. High strung, fragile, eccentric, with a sadness underneath. She sits on her anger most of the time. Works in finance. Must have strong comedic chops.

60s. Handsome, shell-shocked, emotionally remote. Trying for the first time to find happiness after tragedy.

Late 30s-late 40s. KITTY’s husband. Attractive, cerebral, verbal, bookish and slightly rigid. He is the kind of man who can use the word "delightful" in a sentence and not seem remotely effeminate.

Late 20s-early 30s. Winston’s son. A very beautiful young man, overtly sunny. Although he has a boyish energy that makes him seem younger than his years, he is not necessarily a boy physically. He took “some time off from school” and we don’t know how much. Sexy, winning, charming--underneath there is a pit of despair. We should not sense his misery until it is revealed. He is not ironic.

The following roles have been CAST. Actors may be considered for possible replacements should they become needed:

[CAST]: 60s-70s. A celebrated and accomplished stage actress. Although at times flamboyant, she’s a survivor, quite capable of saying what she means and getting what she wants.

[CAST]: 30s. An assistant to Audrey’s agent. High strung, verbal, neurotic, fearful, and gentle. He tries hard to be good at his job, but he also realizes during the course of the play that he doesn’t really want his job or a career as an agent.
