Seeking Actors for Staged Reading
The Wrong Box, A Musical Staged Reading
A mysterious corpse is knocking about Victorian London, and two unscrupulous cousins are desperately trying to find it - except when they're desperately trying to lose it! From pillar to post, from packing-case to piano, the hapless heirs scramble to keep up with the vanishing cadaver in this musical adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic farce.
MORRIS FINSBURY: 30s to 40s. A2 - G#4. Bitter, self-righteous, suspicious. He harbors a deep sense of injustice which gives him purpose in life. He is willing to connive and lie and will go to great lengths to get back his own.
JOSEPH FINSBURY: 60s - 70s. C3 - F#4. Morris's uncle. Dry and irascible, but sweet.
JOHN FINSBURY: 20s - 30s. B2 - F4 (Falsetto: D4 -C5). Joseph's nephew & Morris's younger brother. Silly, a little infantile, imaginative. His goal in life is to perform in a music hall. He does female impersonations, but not very well.
MICHAEL FINSBURY: 30s to 40s. A2 - F4. Morris & John's cousin, a solicitor. Good-looking. Sure of himself, smart. He enjoys toying with people, getting his own way, and drinking heavily.
GIDEON FORSYTH: 20s. G#2 - G4. A barrister. Young, eager, adventurous. Good-looking. Not always the slickest with the ladies, or the fastest thinker in a crisis.
