ROLES
Barney Cashman (45-50) a middle-aged, married nebbish and owner of a New York seafood restaurant, who is facing a severe midlife crisis and wants to join the sexual revolution before it is too late. He describes himself
as a “nice” man with a “nice” wife, living a “nice,” but completely uneventful, life. A gentle soul with no experience in adultery, he attempts three seductions with……

Elaine Navazio (35-40) a sexually liberated woman who likes cigarettes, whiskey, and other women's husbands. Flippant and irreverent, Elaine is openly contemptuous of Barney’s unsophisticated style and bombards him with insults that hit like machine-gun fire. She is interested only in their sensual experience and is unimpressed with his attempts to make anything more of their meeting.

Bobbi Michele (25-30) an unemployed entertainer friend who is a high energy, non-stop talker and totally bizarre. She is an offbeat representative of the “new morality” of the 1960’s who entertains Barney with her wild stories of coast-to-coast sexual encounters, real and imagined, and persuades her straitlaced friend to join her in getting high on marijuana.

Jeanette Fisher (35-40) is the wife of a close friend. Jeanette is a reluctant visitor, joining Barney only because she thinks her husband, Mel, is having an affair of his own. Depressed and guilt-ridden, an unwilling participant in the prevailing sexual climate, Jeanette lectures Barney on moral issues and challenges him to prove that
there are decent people in the world.

**PLEASE NOTE: We are looking to cast ONE ACTRESS for ALL THREE ROLES. Please be prepared to read for all three women when you come to audition.
