|Synopsis||When Exotic dancer, Karen Potter, auditions for the part in the Paragonian Players production of, "The Lady Laid Bare," she is excited to be given the female lead.
For obvious reasons, Bobby Jones, the Chairman, is convinced she just the attraction the club needs to pull it from the abyss of extinction. Dot Savage, the club Secretary is not impressed with Karen's attributes or her acting ability and Bobby's reasons for staging the play.
As the cast assemble for a read through, personalities clash and the past is dragged up to compete with the present. Will the play be staged, as Dot throws her toys out of the cot? Karen has some aces up her sleeve and Bobby has some devastating news.|
|Cast||2F 3M (minimum 5)|
Bobby (50's) Karen (20's) Dot (50's) Mark (30's) Terry (20's)
|Production||The setting is the Green Room in any Amateur Club in almost any town. I've outlined the basic setting. I'm sure you will have your own ideas. The chaise longue is an important prop. For obvious reasons the actor playing Karen, should be voluptuous. Bobby is not the dirty old man he appears to be. Dot is arrogant and self-opiniated. Mark and Terry have their moments and are ideal foils for one another. There really is a play called, "The Lady Laid Bare," (one of mine and a million miles from this one.) which is loosely based on the paintings, "The Clothed Maja," and "The Naked Maja," by the Spanish Artist Francisco de Goya ( 1746-1828).|
