Noises Off by Michael Frayn
In a provincial English town, a theatre troupe rehearses a touring production of a sex comedy, Nothing On. Unfortunately, almost nothing is going right - the cast can't remember their lines, they mix up their blocking, misplace props, and they've lost sight of why they're acting!
The show consists of 4 women and 5 men ages 20-70. Several characters play themselves and then the actor during the play they are performing.
Dotty Otley /
40+ (Off Stage Character: Dotty) A middle-aged actress who is also one of the play's principal investors. Means well and tries her best. A bit forgetful. (On Stage Character: Mrs. Clackett) A cockney housekeeper for the Brent's home in England. Hospitable, though she is a slow-witted and slow-moving chatterbox
Brooke Ashton /
20+ (Off Stage Character: Brooke An inexperienced actress who seems as though she isn't fully "here" sometimes - somewhere else inside her head. She will execute her blocking and lines the way she was told. One third of a Lloyd-Poppy-Brooke love triangle. (On Stage Character: Vicki) An English woman who works for Inland Revenue and is trying to woo Roger.
Belinda Blair /
30+ (Off Stage Character: Belinda) Cheerful and sensible. One of the only reliable actors in the company. She may have feelings for Freddy. (On Stage Character: Flavia Brent) Philip Brent's English wife. She is dependable, though not one for household duties.
20+ Stage Manager. Emotional and over-sensitive and envious of Brooke, whom she understudies. One-third of a Lloyd-Poppy-Brooke love triangle.
30+ The director of the play, "Nothing On". A seasoned thespian working with "amateurs". His patience draws this to the point where he mutters out loud internal thoughts. One-third of the Lloyd-Poppy-Brooke love triangle.
Garry Lejeune /
25+ (Off Stage Character: Garry) The play's leading man, a solid actor who is completely incapable of finishing a sentence unless it is dialogue. Means well but is a little pretentious. (On Stage Character: Roger) An English Real estate agent who is attempting to rent Flavia's and Phillip's home, but uses it for his own personal benefit.
Frederick Fellows /
Phillip Brent /
30+ (Off Stage Character: Freddy) A bit skittish and afraid of violence. Well-meaning, but lacks some self confidence and is rather dim-witted. Often questions the meaning of his lines and moves. Blames himself often for things going wrong. (On Stage Character: Phillip Brent) An Englishman who lives out of the country with his wife Flavia to avoid paying taxes. He enters the country knowing that if he is caught by Inland Revenue, he will lose most of the year's income.(On Stage Character: Sheikh) A Middle-Eastern, Interested in renting Flavia's and Phillip's home and is the splitting image of Phillip.
Selsdon Mowbray /
50+ (Off Stage Character: Selsdon Mowbray) An elderly alcoholic Englishman who may or may not have had a successful acting career at one point. He hides his bottles cleverly onstage. He is hard of hearing... when he wants to be. (On Stage Character: Burglar) Old Cockney man, breaking into the Brents’ home.
20+ The over-worked and easily flustered Stage Manager who wears too many hats in this production.
