Cold reads from the script OR a 1 -2 minute comedic monologue, if you choose

Caren: 20s to early 30s; a perfectionist caterer who is focused, mostly professional… and a little overwhelmed.

Brooke: A junior executive in her 30s; a strong, driven professional woman who is determined to impress. Appearances are everything to her – despite knowing how shallow it is.

Donny: Brooke’s husband; a book store owner in his 30s. He is a former executive who has opted to get out of the rat race and lead a more relaxed lifestyle.

Max: Donny’s assistant at the bookstore, 18 – early 20s. He refuses to remain fired from his job. He is persistent and annoyingly charming; a total klutz.

Julia: Brooke’s assistant, 20s. Someone who will come to Brooke’s rescue, she is a calming individual and much more relaxed than Brooke, yet ends up getting wrapped up in the chaos of the dinner.

Stephen: Julia’s boyfriend, 20s; a former bartender and rock to the whirlwind that ensues.

Will: A boasting, obnoxious CEO and Brooke’s boss, 50s to 60s. He’s an intimidating know-it-all who everyone wants to impress.

Louise: Will’s wife, 50s to 60s; the kind of woman who has made a happy career of being a wife to a powerful man and doesn’t want anything more.
