Dotty Otley (Mrs. Clackett) This lovable, fading sitcom star has put all of her life savings into the show. She is playing the same part here that she has played for years. Dotty is constantly forgetting her lines, entrances and props and has a thing for younger men, like Garry. She also has a spiteful side. Plays Mrs. Clackett, the scattered lower class housekeeper.
Lloyd Dallas This director is smart, frustrated, passive aggressive and condescending. He struggles to balance his personal life withhis professional life and to cope with the continually difficult actors.
Garry Lejeune (Roger Tramplemain) Garry takes himself very seriously and is easily excited into a jealous rage when it comes to Dotty. He is not very articulate and has a habit of not finishing his sentences...you know? Plays Roger Tramplemain, a real-estate agent with other intentions who is concerned about the way things appear to others.
Booke Ashton (Vicki) Sexy, sweet but a terrible actress (probably got the job because she "knows" the director). When she's not performing she is entirely self-absorbed and absolutely clueless to what's happening around her. She is completely blind without her contacts, which always fallout. Plays Vicki, the half dressed love interest of Roger, who is wrapped up in her work.
Poppy Norton-Taylor The Assistant Stage Manager who is stressed out and trying her best to keep the play from falling apart at the seams. Young and naive to the ways of the artistic types all around her, understudies the actresses; a cute girl who is hiding a big secret.
Frederick Fellowes (Philip Brent) A bumbling, over thinking actor with a heart of gold, gets himself in troublefor being entirely clueless. A bit of a wimp, he gets terrible nosebleeds at the thought of violence and faints at the mention or sight of blood. Plays Philip Brent, an upper class man who has been running from his taxes.
Belinda Blair (Flavia Brent) The sweet, cast gossip, always seems to be in the know and loves to let everyone know it. Works overtime to try and salvage the show, but then gets wrapped up in the drama herself. Plays Flavia Brent, Philip's classy, yet opinionated, wife.
Tim Allgood The trusty Company and Stage Managerwho never seems to get a breakand who must fix everything. Eager to please everyone and constantly sleep deprived. He is also the understudy for all the men.
Selsdon Mowbray (Burglar) An elderly, recovering alcoholic with a penchant for missing entrances, forgetting lines and disappearing entirely. Seems to be clueless, but knows more than he lets on. Plays the Burglar, a former high class thief who now resorts to any job that arises.

Rehearsals: Monday through Thursday evenings with some possible Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Or, is set in the Restoration period, but plays off the
echoes between the late 1660s, the late 1960s, and the present. It takes place
(mostly) during one night in the life of Aphra Behn, poet, spy and soon to be
the first professional female playwright. Sprung from debtors’ prison after a
disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade.
She has a shot at a production at one of the only two London theatre companies,
if she can only finish her play by morning despite interruptions from sudden
new love, actress Nell Gwynne, complicated royal love, King Charles II; and
very dodgy ex-lover, double-agent William Scot—who may be in on a plot to
murder the king in the morning. Can Aphra resist Nell’s charms, save Charles’
life, win William a pardon, and launch her career, all in one night? Against a background of a long drawn out war
and a counter-culture of free love, cross dressing, and pastoral lyricism, the
1660s look a lot like the 1960s in this neo-Restoration comedy.
