Mrs. Stancliffe's Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast has been successful for many years. Her Guests (nearly all women) return year after year. Her next door neighbor, the elderly, silver-tongued, Bud "Bud the Stud" Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons. The prim and proper Mrs. Stancliffe steadfastly denies this, but really doesn't do anything to prevent it. She reluctantly accepts the fact that "Bud the Stud" is, in fact, good for business. Her other neighbor and would-be suitor Henry Mitchell is a retired chemist who has developed a blue pill called "Venusia," after Venus the goddess of love, to increase the libido of menopausal women. The pill has not been tested.

Add to the guest list three older women: Victoria Ambrose, a romance novelist whose personal life seems to be lacking in romance; Hillary Hudson a friend of Henry's who has agreed to test the Venusia: and Charmaine Beauregard, a "Southern Belle" whose libido does not need to be increased! Bud gets his hands on some of the Venusia pills and the fun begins, as he attempts to entertain all three women! The women mix up Bud's Viagra pills with the Venusia, and we soon discover that it has a strange effect on men: it gives them all the symptoms of menopausal women, complete with hot flashes, mood swings, weeping and irritability! When the mayhem settles down, all the women find their lives moving in new and surprising directions.

CASTING ATTRIBUTES

Ensemble cast, Non-Traditional casting, Strong Role for Leading Man (Star Vehicle), Parts for Senior Actors

BUD DAVIS - age 70 +; the next-door neighbor to Mrs. Stancliffes' Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; weak, frail looking (the frailer the better), however, over the years, he has become renowned among the female guests as "Bud the Stud;" very elderly, somewhat infirm, chauvinistic, brazen, but likeable
MRS. STANCLIFFE - age 60 +; the owner of Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; a severe woman both in dress and manner; pursued by her next door neighbor, Henry; sensible, practical, punctual, business like, menopausal, but finally radiant and sensuous
HENRY MITCHELL - age 60+; a retired chemist and Mrs. Stancliffe's "Gentleman Caller;" a mild mannered man who has proposed to Mrs. Stancliffe every afternoon for twenty years; has developed Venusia; eventually comes out of his shell
VICTORIA AMBROSE - age 50+; a renowned author who writes steamy romantic novels; pines for romance in her personal life, but finds none; readily joins the plot to turn "Bud the Stud" into "Bud the Dud;" pretty, serious, intelligent, menopausal
HILLARY HUDSON - age 50+; beautiful, well educated, articulate, and sophisticated in both manner and dress; old friend and co-worker of Henry's, who agrees to test the Venusia pills; elegant, charming, and menopausal
CHARMAINE BEAUREGARD - age 50+; the quintessential southern belle; definitely here at Rose Cottage for Bud and becomes the leading light in the plot to tame him; voluptuous, out-going, gushing, demonstrative, menopausal

I really enjoyed reading this play and hope to actually be in it someday.

Great show for a more senior cast. Lots of physical comedy and adult humor.

Excellent!!

Our community theatre performed this play to rave reviews. The cast had so much fun doing it and the audiences loved it.  We had people with tears running down their cheeks they were laughing so hard.  The most difficult part was having enough doors and exits and entrances on our small stage.
