Director: David Arisco
Francis Henshall (Male, 20s) an Essex boy driven by his stomach; a bit rough around the edges, but very charming; should be on the heavy-side; incredible comic presence; should be able to do complex physical routines; a teddy-bear quality helps, along with the ability to improvise and turn on a sixpence; sings.
Stanley Stubbers (Male, 20-35) a posh public-school boy in love with Rachel; has a very dirty sense of humor, but is still charming and generally decent; good-looking, fit, earnest, utterly confident, and steeped in the arrogance of the upper classes; sings.
Rachel Crabbe (Female, 20-35) a London girl from a criminal family; sharp and quick-witted, driven by her real love for Stanley; disguised as her dead brother Roscoe; as Roscoe, she is channeling Pinkie in Brighton Rock, the psychotic 1960s gangster, homosexual, vicious; as Rachel, she is strong-witted, brave, and good; Cockney accent (not too strong); must sing.
Harry Dangle (Male, 50-65) the stereotypical corrupt lawyer; loquacious, bombastic, and blustery; extravagant, red-faced, pompous; posh RP accent, which occasionally dips into Cockney; must sing; ukulele playing a plus.
Charlie ‘The Duck’ Clench (Male, 50-59) Pauline's father; small-time gangster; streetwise, but not intelligent; weasely, shifty, spic-like; has a great, prosaic turn of phrase; the stereotypical small time London geezer; Cockney accent, doesn't sing.
Lloyd Boateng (Male, 40-65) wise and sanguine owner of a pub; old friend of both Charlie and Rachel; Jamaican with a strong Caribbean accent; gregarious, helpful; doesn't sing.
Pauline Clench (Female, 20-29) sweet, pretty Cockney girl who is not very bright; in love with Alan; despite being dumb and occasionally shrill, she should be somehow appealing; must sing.
Alan (Male, 20-29) an aspiring actor with little common sense; hot-headed and passionate, full of bluster but ineffective; attractive but in a characterful way; maybe tall and lanky, a bit goofy; from Brighton, so not posh RP; middle-class London accent, but not Cockney like the Clenches.
Dolly (Female, 30-39) Charlie's accountant; smart and sassy; very sexy and very funny but not dumb; in fact, she's probably the smartest person in the play; gorgeous, flirtatious, curvaceous, a real firecracker; she's Northern so Lancashire or Yorkshire accent, Liverpool would work, too; must sing.
Ensemble (Male and Female) a variety of roles including waiters, porters, maids, etc.

Marcus (Male, 25-39) a young, eager police officer determined to make his mark on the crime-solving world, charming, earnest, sympathetic, happy and hopeful, straight-laced and totally by-the-book, nevertheless he greets most challenges with a warm smile, chipper (not grizzled), his good-natured demeanor prevails despite this very challenging case. Excellent Piano Player.
The Suspects (Male, 25-39) one male actor to play multiple roles, a sharp and versatile performer able to transform from role to role on a dime, a vivid, believable and extraordinarily chameleon-like actor- musician; full list of characters is as follows: Arthur Whitney, a celebrated author, the murder victim; Mrs. Dahlia Whitney, the victim's wife, zaniest of all the suspects, a 58-year-old Southern woman whose dreams of a life in showbiz took a back seat as she fell into the shadows of her husband's career, but still harbors a deep and burning desire to perform, her logic borders on the ridiculous and cartoon; Barrette Lewis, a glamorous and sinister and highly aging ballerina, a femme fatale; Dr. Griff: a friendly old psychiatrist, the oldest of all the suspects, on a one-track mission to find a best friend and completely delusional about his relationship with Officer Marcus, desperate for affection and companionship; Steph Whitney, the inquisitive niece of Arthur and Dahlia Whitney, the most grounded of all the suspects, grad student studying criminology, eager and naive, the mousy girl next door who has not had many boyfriends; Murray Flandon, drill sergeant of a neighbor to the Whitneys, feisty, old, ever-bickering, but madly in love with his wife, together they trade insults as foreplay; Barb Flandon, feisty, from Brooklyn, one to gossip with the girls, ever-bickering but madly in love with her husband; the Anachronistic Boy's Choir, from Badoinkaville, a tough-talking place, "anachronistic yet droll," consisting of Timmy, the wise cracking leader; Yonkers, rough and tumble; and Skid, the slower member of the choir, held back a couple of years; and Henry Vivaldi, a proud local firefighter, the happiest firefighter in the world, like a Gilbert and Sullivan character. Excellent Piano Player.
