Brief Synopsis:

Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go. In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's in which room, who's being videotaped, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes.cops. Three crooks.

Roles: Seeking a talented and diverse cast to play roles from 20 to 70.  Descriptions are from the script.  Ages listed below are representative and should not deter you from auditioning for the show if you think you can play the part.  All roles are available.

ERIC SHERIDAN (Male, 30s) - a police officer. Bookish, even-keeled guy who finds himself completely out of his element when called upon to express his feelings for a woman, lie to his boss, disguise himself as someone else, and stand up to an armed mobster - while not wearing any pants.

BILLIE DWYER (Female, 20s/30s) - a police officer, Eric's partner. Excitable and entirely un-threatening, she seemingly lacks every skill necessary for police work, but is as eager to succeed as she seems destined to fail.

KAREN BROWN (Female, 30s) - an accountant, who has always taken pride in her accountant-like, professional demeanor - until this morning, when she finds herself filled with a sexual hunger, and unable to keep things in control.

MAYOR MEEKLY (Male, 40s-70s) - an Innocent, with a capital I. An affable, gentle fellow. Not too quick on the pick-up, but a sweet, sweet soul.

AGENT FRANK (Male, 20s - 50s) - the head of Security at Town Hall, and frankly, the wrong man for the job. Though he presents the confident, gruff exterior of a secret service agent (or film noir detective, even), he is frequently (and, at moments of crisis, invariably) a man frightened by his own shadow.

TODD (Male, 20s-50s) - speaks with a pronounced Scottish accent. A professional hitman. Cool, quiet, and perceptive when at his best, but more frequently an angry Scotsman - and the angrier he becomes, the thicker his accent gets, until he is entirely indecipherable.

MARY MEEKLY (Female, 40s-70s) - the Mayor's wife. Small in stature and unfailingly sweet, she seems, in every way, the perfect match for her husband.
