CASTING ATTRIBUTES

Strong Role for Leading Woman (Star Vehicle)

LILLIAN: 45 - 55; an unstoppable Southern house afire: raucous, ribald, and irascible; deeply unfulfilled, at times quietly ruminative, aware she's a casualty of too many regrettable choices.

JACK: 45 - 55, an amiable, loquacious winner no longer quite at the top of his game; until his considerable charm gives way to deceit, he smoothly scores.

I saw this play produced in Phoenix Arizona and I still think about it.  The script was very poignant and real. Very well written and kept audience attention.
