Play Synopsis:

It’s 1950 and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door.


We intend to cast broadly in regards to race/ethnicity, gender identity, body type, etc.

Casting: 3 men, 4 women

Available Roles:

BOB MARTINDALE – 30’s-40’s, A WWII veteran, reserved. A bit bookish, but a solid man’s man. Good-humored and well-mannered.

MILLIE MARTINDALE – late 20’s-30’s, Bob’s wife. Plays “the ditzy wife” when people are in the house, but actually very quick-witted and observant. Smart enough to maintain the act.

NORMA BAXTER – 30’s, The knowing, efficient, classy dame. A secretary at the State Department who could just as easily be Secretary of State. A wise woman who’s great with a wisecrack and level-headed in a bind.

JIM BAXTER – 20’s-30’s, Norma’s husband. A prankster type, always ready with a comeback. A high school teacher with lots of energy. A little wired, good with a plan.

THEODORE SUNDERSON – 40’s-50’s, The boss. Bombastic, loud, a bit overbearing. A patriotic windbag.

KITTY SUNDERSON – 40’s, Ted’s wife. Legitimately ditzy. Her brain seems to work on a totally different wavelength than the rest of the world. Very sweet and genuine. Just doesn’t quite “get it.”

BARBARA GRANT – 40’s, A formidable opponent. No-nonsense, beautiful, brilliant, and a little intimidating.
