Roles are available for two females and three males:
Sidney Bruhl – stately, wry, witty, erudite, distinguished, 50ish male writer, any race. Has a strong magnetizing presence of a man who has achieved great fame and stature. A celebrated playwright of mystery thrillers who gained astonishing success early in his career but has hit a dry spell. Actor must have some experience in stage combat.
Myra Bruhl – a modest, self-effacing woman in her late 40s or 50s, any race, middle-upper class. Has a nervous, quick, disposition and tends to follow rather than lead. Married to Sidney for eleven years.

Helga Ten Dorp – a wildly eccentric, mysterious woman, Eastern European psychic. Her magical powers are very real and potent. She is a celebrity and enjoys the fame, attention and the status. 40s or older.
