If you are unfamiliar with the plot for this hilarious play by Neil Simon, then you can read all about it here .

KEN GORMAN – (40) A well-to-do lawyer. Wealthy, but by no means pretentious. Takes 
charge of the situation. Married to Chris. Halfway through the show, a gunshot causes his 
temporary deafness. 
CHRIS GORMAN – (mid-30’s) Another lawyer, married to Ken. Beautiful, easily flustered. 
Frantically tries to maintain normalcy at the party. Has recently quit smoking, which 
drives her to drink a bit more. 
LENNY GANZ – (Late 30’s, early 40’s) – A wealthy accountant, distraught over the recent 
destruction over his new car. Starts the show with an extreme case of whiplash. Intolerant 
of the gossipy-lifestyle that he is often involved in. 
CLAIRE GANZ – (Late 30’s) – Lenny’s wife. Very concerned with appearances (hers and 
others’). Starts the play with a swollen lip. Likes to gossip. 
ERNIE CUSACK – (Early 50’s) – a psychiatrist. Affable, smokes a pipe. Loves his wife very 
much. Tries to be as helpful as possible cooking the evening’s dinner. 
COOKIE CUSACK – (40’s) – has her own cooking show. Suffers from extreme back spasms. 
Loves her husband very much. A bit absent-minded at times. 
GLENN COOPER – (30-40) A handsome man running for State Senate. Worried about his 
own reputation. Struggles with placating his wife, who is convinced he is having an affair 
(which he may or may not be). 
CASSIE COOPER – (late 20’s, early 30’s) Glenn’s beautiful wife. Obsesses over her 
husbands’ relationships with other women. Quick to anger. Must rub her quartz crystal to 
calm herself down. 
OFFICER WELCH (M) – (30-50) – A city police officer having a rough night. Does not tolerate lying. Sees through the “classy” façade that these high-society types put up. 
OFFICER PUDNEY (F) – (20-30) – Welch’s partner. A strong but silent type.
