Breakdown

Margaret Civil – women (50 – 60) she’s of good bearing, good looking, Connecticut housewife.

Kathrine Brynne – women (50 – 60) she’s Vivid looking, forthright, an enthusiast who is also a Connecticut housewife.

Man – (25 – 35yrs old) Someone else in each scene. This requires a strong versatile actor.

Ganesha - A Hindu god. Would like to find an actor of Indian decent but not mandatory. He has an elephant’s head. This requires a powerful actor who is able to keep the audience’s attention while wearing a mask most of the time.
Also needs to move well as there is some dancing required.



A PERFECT GANESH is about two outwardly unremarkable, middle- aged lady friends who throw themselves into a rousing tour of India, each one having her own secret dreams of what the fabled land of intoxicating opposites will do for the suffering she hides within.
Margaret Civil, an uptight example of WASP prerogative, has just discovered a lump in her breast but hasn’t told her friend. Katharine seeks a respite from the haunting of her son, Walter, and even thinks of kissing the leprous hordes of Bombay to atone for the way she rejected him and maybe, she thinks, contributed to the gay-bashing in which he died. Faced with the women’s despair, who but the golden elephant god could intervene? Fluid in his power to assume any guise, at peace which all things, Ganesha is the spiritual center around which the play spins itself, drawing upon the tragic and comic, the beautiful and the deplorable, until a breathtaking release arrives for both women at his hands.


Please note: This production runs fromJanuary 22nd through February 9th. This is a 5 week contract with rehearsals beginning onJanuary 6, 2014.
