Jezebel

by Mark Cantan
Directed by Paul Ackroyd

Performance dates:
Wed 27th Sept – Sun 1st Oct 2017 at 7.45 pm

Audition date:
Sunday 14th May at 12 noon.

Jezebel is a clever comedy about the dumb consequences of hot sex meeting cold statistics. A light-hearted lesson in what not to do when your sex life needs saving.

Alan and Robin are a dynamic couple looking to spice up their sex life.   Could a threesome the answer to their problems? Unfortunately they choose Jezebel as the third corner of their triangle who, in spite of her name, is about the most unlikely candidate for such an adventure. The consequences for all three of them are as unexpected as they are hilarious.

The play is extremely fast paced, all three actors will be “onstage” during the entire performance. It is a very theatrical piece with direct talking to the audience, commentary on the action and much talking on mobile phones.   I hope to stage it completely in the round with the audience on all four sides of the bar area. The play moves through numerous scenes very rapidly and the cast will have to manage the scene changes themselves although I envisage using the minimum of props and stage dressing.

In spite of the subject matter the play is in good taste with no nudity, sexual simulation or swearing…. ..sorry !

CHARACTERS:

The ideal playing age for the three characters is late 20’s or 30′ s but I can be flexible as long as the relationships work .

Robin: A determined career orientated young lady…very much the stronger character in the Robin /Alan pairing.

Alan: A statistician who brings his knowledge to bear on the likelihood of the ongoing events. Easy going, eager to please and keen to avoid conflict.

Jezebel: A bit of a lost soul. Unlucky in relationships and with an unerring knack of making wrong choices.

Rehearsals will start in late July and step up in earnest in mid-August.
