SHORT SYNOPSIS:  

Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional — and actual — cheerleader) and a stripper named Sweetheart, she tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenact scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are both freed from their past in this smart, dark revenge comedy.

CASTING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:

All characters sing with a Georgia dialect. All ethnicities welcome.

NAN CARTER (F, 27-35) Pretty and quick. Determined to end the abuse in her life. (Character has a Georgia dialect and must be able to sing Karaoke to Jefferson Starship “ Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now.”)

KYLE CARTER (M, 27 – 37)  Big, messy. Not the sharpest tool in the shed. (Character has a Georgia dialect.)

SWEETHEART/PEACHES/SUPERKYLE (F, 20 -25) Plays all three parts. Functions as Kyle in re-enactments but hotter.  (Character has a Georgia dialect and must be able to sing Karaoke to Jefferson Starship “ Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now.”)

SIMON BEAUFORT (M, 20s) Gay, pretty, strong, and bitchy. Cat-like in movement. Wears girl’s red cheerleading outfit for a time. (Character has a Georgia dialect and must be able to sing Karaoke to Jefferson Starship “ Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now.”)
