DIRECTOR: Claudia Lillibridge
George and Martha are a middle aged married couple, whose charged relationship is defined by vitriolic verbal battles, which underlies what seems like an emotional dependence upon each other. This verbal abuse is fueled by an excessive consumption of alcohol. George being an associate History professor in a New Carthage university where Martha's father is the President adds an extra dimension to their relationship. Late one Saturday evening after a faculty mixer, Martha invites Nick and Honey, an ambitious young Biology professor new to the university and his mousy wife, over for a nightcap. As the evening progresses, Nick and Honey, plied with more alcohol, get caught up in George and Martha's games of needing to hurt each other and everyone around them. The ultimate abuse comes in the form of talk of George and Martha's unseen sixteen year old son, whose birthday is the following day.
ALL ROLES AVAILABLE! Ages flexible. Come prepared to read from the script.
Martha (Lead): Female - older
married to George, though disappointed - and now embittered - with his aborted academic career, a daddy's girl with an acid tongue and a quick & sometimes malicious mind, has suffered great emotional trauma.
George (Lead): Male - older
a member of the history department at New Carthage University, married to Martha in a once loving relationship now frequented by acrimony, a brilliant mind who feels disempowered, and lashes out through sarcasm.
Nick (Supporting): Male - younger
Midwestern, good-looking, clean-cut, married to Honey, has just become a new member of the biology faculty at New Carthage University and is looking to climb up in the world, confident, and focused on his future, science, and the American dream.
Honey (Supporting): Female - younger
petite, mousy, and anxious wife of Nick, has a weak stomach and prefers to avoid issues than dwell in their complexities.
