Casting Breakdown

SIDNEY BRUHL – (Male Presenting. Mid 40s-60s) A once acclaimed author fallen victim to a recent creative drought. He’s usually the smartest and most charming one in the room and wants to make sure everyone else in the room knows it. Sidney is extremely ambitious and will do almost anything to get what he wants, no matter who might be in his way.

CLIFFORD ANDERSON – (Male Presenting. 20s-30s) An attractive and talented young writer with a bright future ahead of him. He’s usually the smartest and most charming one in the room but is fine with biding his time to let people find that out. He is extremely clever and can easily slip on fronts of innocence and naivete that belies some of his darker ambitions.

MYRA BRUHL – (Female Presenting. Mid 40s to 60s) Sidney’s loving and supportive wife. She is a kind and calming presence during some of Sidney’s stormier moods. Her soft exterior can give way to a much firmer attitude.

HELGA TEN DORP (Female Presenting. 30+) Celebrity Psychic who loves every minute of her fame. She is free spirited, and not easily intimidated.

PORTER MILGRIM (Male Presenting. 30+.) Sidney’s friend and attorney. Very sharp and observant of his surroundings.
