Shows for Days is an arch love letter to community theater, this autobiographical comedy chronicles the playwright’s coming of age in the 1970s amidst a motley crew of devoted thespians. The show originally was presented off Broadway at Lincoln Center and starred Patti Lupone.

CAST BREAKDOWN

Irene: Female, 40-60. Late 50s, but you wouldn't know it. A force of nature with an outsize personality, theatrical, ambitious, indomitable, and given to the grand gesture

Car: Male, actor must be able to play 35-45 AND the same character as a teenager. A playwright, looking back on a time of his life when he discovered the theater and his sexuality. For much of the play, he plays his teenaged self, a young man in search of his place in the world, which he discovers in the theater

Sid: Female, 40-50. Shoulders the hard work, the unglamorous work of running a theater; tough, unsentimental, constantly frustrated by her partner’s unrealistic demands

Clive: Male, 40s. African American. Has stature, style, and wit; he is gay, self-assured, clever, and has an innate sophistication about the theater.

Damian: Male, 20s-30s. Very attractive, easygoing, charming, the kind of guy whom everyone falls for, women and men alike.

Maria: Female, 30s. An aging ingénue, views the world with a certain naiveté and open heart; she's often teased by the other company members, who are a bit more sophisticated than she.
