REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will begin June 15.
Two cable access cooking show mavens, who have hated each other since one of them stole the other’s husband, are brought together on one program. The studio audience is in for a treat as on-air theatrics give way to off-air drama and more than hash is flung around the set.
SEEKING EQUITY AND NON-EQUITY ACTORS FOR THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
Dolly Biddle: (female, 40-55) A little cherub of a woman, prone to overweight but always going at top speed. She indulges herself with anything life has to offer whenever possible – even if it’s not good for her – and her creative imagination knows no bounds. She is intensely proud of her son Stephen, loves to dispense advice along with recipes, and hates Isobel Lomax with an intensity usually reserved for detonating nuclear devices.
Stephen Biddle: (male 30’s to 40’s) A nervous, prematurely balding but decent young man who actually enjoys producing low-budget cable TV shows, even when it’s his Mom who’s the star. He is bright and capable, if somewhat shy, but always reluctant to confront Dolly on her many shortcomings. He’s not a fighter – he’d rather be a lover, but nobody’s asked him yet.
Isobel Lomax: (female, 40-55) Thinks Martha Stewart could learn something about homemaking from her. She trained at the Cordon Bleu culinary school and enjoyed a successful career, including her own show, “Busy Izzy.” Isobel likes people to think she has a much classier background than reality supports, and she always wears the correct accessories. At heart, she is a bright, funny and articulate woman who has come to terms with the choices she made early in life.
Rob OR Roberta (male or female 20-30) The Camera Guy OR Chick: The production assistant from the “Getting Our Kids Off the Street” program. S/he tends to dress in a somewhat Goth fashion – possibly with tattoos and multiple piercings. Stephen is a little afraid of him/her. S/he cleans up the sets, resets props, carries the portable camera around during the show and is generally extremely efficient and precise. S/he is probably the most sensible person in the show.
