Seeking an ensemble of comic actors with great facility with accents. Actively seeking all ethnicities for all roles.
POIROT - CAST MACQUEEN - CAST
BOUC - male, 30's to 50's, ANY ETHNICITY. A Belgian man of good humor. Playful, proud, generous. A predilection for grandeur. A whirlwind of energy. Must be an excellent comedian.
RATCHETT/COL. ARBUTHNOT - male, mid 30's to early 50's, ANY ETHNICITY. 1 actor will play 2 roles. SAMUEL RATCHETT: Middle-aged American businessman, evil at heart and frightening, brusque, unforgiving, stern demeanor. Pushy, domineering. / COLONEL ARBUTHNOT: Scotsman, also middle aged, handsome, very matter of fact, occasionally tender. Must have great comic timing.
MICHEL/MARCEL - male, mid 30's to early 60's, ANY ETHNICITY. 1 actor will play 2 roles. MICHEL: A good-looking Frenchman, about 40, a quiet, almost grave sense of humor. Unfailingly polite. / MARCEL: A Turkish waiter, snooty, smooth. Must have great comic timing.
MARY DEBENHAM - female, 30's, ANY ETHNICITY. An English beauty. A governess, capable yet romantic. A sadness around her eyes and a hardness about her person.
GRETA OHLSSON - female, mid 20's to 60's. Inherently odd, and very devout Swedish woman. A frightened, sheeplike quality. Must be an excellent comedienne with an impeccable Swedish accent.
COUNTESS ANDRENYI - female, 20's to 30's, ANY ETHNICITY. Brilliantly beautiful, like something out of a fairytale. Impeccably put together, with a warmth that wins over everyone she meets. Her delicacy belies a steely edge - she is no wilting flower. Hungarian accent.
MRS. HUBBARD - female, late 40's to 60's, ANY ETHNICITY. An outspoken and flamboyant American from the Midwest. Jovial, obnoxious, domineering, deliciously nosy and brash. Unapologetic. Must be an excellent comedienne.
PRINCESS DRAGOMIROFF - female, 60's to 70's, ANY ETHNICITY. A Russian dowager. Very formal, a sweeping, impressive presence. Imperial, impatient.
