"Lettice and Lovage" - AUDITIONS
Story by Peter Shaffer
Set in England, "Lettice and Lovage" is a great comedic character study of opposites. Lettice is one of those rare individuals who does things with her whole being involved - whether or not it's the truth. Lettice sees life as half full, goes to the beat of her own drum, and believes that it is her duty to "enliven" any boring event or interaction with creativity and imagination.

Lettice Douffet: Lettice is the opposite to Lotte: a spirited, enthusiastic, creative, partying type who stays in the pub until closing time and then starts to party. Lettice is one of those rare individuals who does that. Lettice sees life as half full, goes to the beat of her own drum, and believes that it is her duty to "enliven" any boring event or interaction with creativity and imagination
Lotte Schoen: Lotte is a typical staid, conventional, stiff-upper-lip, plum-in-her-mouth, never-raise-your-voice English woman. Both Lettice and Lotte have something important to teach. Through time, we all lose some of the innocence, imagination, and optimism of our youth - unless we commit to staving off that seeming inevitability.
Miss Framer: Lotte's assistant. Frightened and afraid of her own shadow. Very insecure and nervous, sounds breathy.
Mr. Bardolph: Solicitor (English equivalent of an "attorney"), middle age, dry and professional. Is attempting to get a statement of the facts from Lettice. Bardolph thinks it will be quite simple and straight-forward, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Surly Man: Gentleman looking for a kink in Lettice's historical armour. He may be a press person in cognito.
Woman (with baby): One of the tourists on Lettice's tour of Fustian House. She is personally shocked by Lettice's historical tidbits of information. [Could be played by Miss Framer]
