Role(s):
GARRY ESSENDINE
Male, 40s to 60s a cigarette-holder-wielding matinee idol slipping reluctantly into middle age; self-dramatizing, self-important, and hopelessly self-infatuated. Must have an upper-class British accent and comic timing.

LIZ ESSENDINE
Female, 50s to 60s. Garry’s ex-wife. Stylish and able to hold her own at a party.

MONICA REED
Female, 40s – 60s. Garry’s secretary, pal, and confidant.

ROLAND MAULE
Male, 20s – Early 30s. An aspiring, experimental playwright who still lives with his parents in Uckfield.

JOANNA LYPPIATT
Female, 30s – 40s. Hugo’s wife. A femme fatale whose appetite for social status is matched only by her other appetites.

DAPHNE STILLINGTON
female, 20s. Garry’s recent dalliance. A pretty, gently-bred debutante who grew up absolutely idolizing Garry Essendine.

HUGO LYPPIATT
Male, 50s – 60s. Garry’s producer. Shrewd and business savvy. Hospitable yet proud.

MORRIS DIXON
Male, Mid 40s – 60s. Garry’s manager. Smart but with a romantic streak.

MISS ERIKSON
Female, 50s – 70s. The chain-smoking Swedish housekeeper. Unfazed and slow-moving.

FRED
Male, 20s – 30s. Garry’s valet. Cockney and cocksure.

LADY SALTBURN
Female, 50s – 70s. Daphne’s aristocratic aunt. A model of English propriety.

Synopsis:
Actor Garry Essendine is at the height of his fame. He’s handsome, witty, surrounded by adoring fans, and about to take his latest theatrical hit overseas. He’s also in the middle of a raging mid-life crisis. Holed up in his studio, he is assailed from all quarters: a beautiful debutante wants to bed him, an aspiring playwright from Uckfield wants to worship him, and his own producer’s wife wants to… well, what exactly does she want? Under the sardonic eye of his long-suffering secretary and the unshockable gaze of his estranged but determined wife, Garry struggles to keep all the balls in the air. This sparkling comedy about sex, fame and the theatre itself – and a man wrestling with his own self-image – is widely regarded as Noël Coward’s most autobiographical play.
