AFRAID OF THE DARK is at once a play and a singular theatrical experience, depicting as it does the ghoulish and fantastical things that happen when four people, all acquaintances, are visited by a mysterious, cryptic stranger.

Seeking (all roles are available):

Dr Henry Charlier:

60s. Ex-Vaudeville performer, thirty years past his prime. Kindly, smooth and cultured, he could be middle-European with a very faint accent. A very formal man from an earlier era; polite, with impeccable manners. Ideally a thin man that would convey a physical frailty. The role will be physically demanding. Casting personnel will also consider younger and older actors who can play this age.

Roger Maxwell:

Late 30s). Handsome (but not gorgeous). Ambitious, charming, but also has a darkness and an edge. Comes across as a genuinely nice, warm guy.

Julius Bernstein:

50s. Arrogant, pushy, demanding and tough, a la Louis B. Mayer.

Hershell Blank:

Man, early - mid 30s. Nervy, talented, intelligent and offbeat. Carries a torch for Sandra. Oddly attractive, but not a leading man-type.

Sandra Callaghan:

Mid 20s - early 30s. Smart, independent, beautiful. Has seen it all, especially when it comes to men.
