"The Idea Man" will run Feb 18 - Mar 17, 2012 at the California Stage Theater in Midtown Sacramento.

The Play: Kevin King's "The Idea Man," received its world premiere with the Elephant Theatre Company in Hollywood immediately winning THE BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR award at the LA Ovation Awards.

The story: This play concerns the conflict between labor and management that arises when a smart but underachieving worker puts a million-dollar idea into the company suggestion box and is awarded only a hundred dollars and a plaque. The suggestion involves improvements to one of the company's machines, and the machine's inventor and his boss decide to steal the idea for their own gain. Unfortunately for them, the worker has left out some vital information. A struggle of will and bargaining styles ensues, to sometimes hilarious results, as we see these worlds collide.
All Roles Open:
1. Al Carson: A skilled toolmaker, a guy with self-described "anger issues." He's an irrepressible skirt-chasing, beer-drinking, smart-mouthed know-it-all, father of six kids by two wives and an interim girlfriend. Al is also a mechanical savant with a head full of ideas, one gem of which, he drops in the factory suggestion box. Company union rep.
2. Francine Carson: Al's current wife is every bit Al's match. Her deadpan delivery nails him every time. Though not well educated, Francine recognizes Al's propensity to sabotage his own efforts.
3. Frank Thompson: The consummate white-collar resident engineer who originally designed the machine Al works on, instantly spots the simple brilliance in Al's new idea. He is also a man torn between loyalties, obligations, ambition, and an instinct for fairness; his is the pathos of the team player. Frank is unsatisfied with his life and longs for the "big idea" to make his mark.
4. Maureen Thompson: Frank's wife, canny, still hoping to climb the social ladder.
5. Jim Simmons: The factory's senior VP, smooth and calculating. He can be officious and demanding.
6. Doyle: Al's co-worker, a spot-welder and the sage of the plant.
7. Bobby: Al's co-worker and none too bright.
8. Gino: Al's co-worker. Jealous of Al's popularity and suspicious of Frank. He's out to prove everyone wrong in making Al the union rep.
