Character Breakdown: 3 men and 2 women.

SYDNEY BRUHL
(M) 50-65: A famous writer of Broadway thrillers. His recent string of flops has him considering just about anything to be back on top with a hit show. He is impressive, polished, manipulative, a bit flamboyant and self-assured. Must be capable of stage combat.

CLIFF ANDERSON (M) 25-35: An aspiring young playwright. Preppy, good-looking, intelligent and charming, all of which covers an ambitious and deceptive streak. He is determined to become a successful playwright. Must be capable of stage combat.

MYRA BRUHL (F) 35-50: Sydney’s self-effacing but charming wife. Sophisticated, upper class and supportive of her husband’s efforts to stay on top. She may be more “willing” than at first glance.

HELGA TEN DORP (F) 45-65: A famous German psychic who is visiting the neighbors of the Bruhl’s. She is nosey, quirky, struggles with her English, disarming and brave.

PORTER MILGRAM (M) 50-60: A Brahmin lawyer. An imposing man of substance who is on the lookout for Sidney’s best interests. A friend of the family.
