Scripts available for each part at http://artsandcults.com/casting/.

Henry (Lead): Male, 28-36
Henry’s professional success is constantly offset by his narcissism and pettiness; out of relentless desperation to impress people, Henry relies on an assortment of lies each more extravagant than the next.

Curtis (Lead): Male, 30-40
An intelligent, almost impossibly worldly, romantic; it is this romantic nature which somewhat clouds his judgment and amounts to a nearly naive trust in Susan; nevertheless, Curtis is infectiously charming.
*this role requires singing and piano (intermediate to moderate skill level).

Karen (Lead): Female, 28-36
Sweet, funny, and pop-culture obsessed; much like Curtis, her sweetness amounts to a polite skepticism about Henry and Susan.

Albert (Supporting): Male, 28-36
Oblivious, obnoxious, occasionally crude, and unwaveringly faithful to Henry; not without the occasional insight, Albert still manages to disrupt the evening.

Becca (Supporting): Female, 21-25
While generally good-natured is also eager to disrupt events once she senses something is awry; her inquisitive side threatens to undermine the night’s proceedings.

Gwen (Supporting): Female, 25-40
Forced into an awkward dinner party with complete strangers, is initially exacerbated but eventually settles into the intrigue of the party; showing little patience or attraction towards her date, Albert, she averts her attention to uncovering the peculiarity of the evening with Becca.

Leigh (Supporting): Female, 28-36
Wild and fun-loving with a sinister fixation on Henry which manifests in her manipulation of Dr. Rubenstein; unlike the others, Leigh revels in the tension and chaos.

Dr. Rubenstein (Supporting): Male, 55-75
Eager to please Leigh and despite his moral objections, Dr. Rubenstein reluctantly agrees to align himself with Henry and Susan; his intelligent and distinguished demeanor quickly unravels when Leigh and Henry’s background is revealed, leading to a final and tragic explosion.
