PLAZA SUITE Character Description
ACT I – VISITORS FROM MAMARONECK
BELLHOP – The Bellhop is eager to please and will visit as long as he needs to get his tip. (the role might be doubled with Borden Eisler)
SAM NASH – Sam cannot come to terms with age. Trim, incredibly neat and well put together, needs to know he looks good and also that others know he looks good. Goes to great strides to keep the years at bay, with exercise and a meticulous diet. Also a workaholic, and currently having an affair with his secretary, Jean.
KAREN NASH – Karen is fine with her age. Pleasant and affable woman, allowed herself to look middle aged because she knows she is middle aged. Witty and down to earth, secretly hoping the visit at the suite will bring her and her husband closer together for their “twenty-something” anniversary. She suspects her husband is having an affair with his secretary.
WAITER – trained to be friendly and please customers.
JEAN McCORMACK – Jean is Sam’s secretary and highly efficient. Attractive, bright and cheerful. She is also Sam’s mistress. (the role might be doubled with Mimsey Hubley)
ACT II – VISITORS FROM HOLLYWOOD
WAITER – (same waiter from Act I)
JESSE KIPLINGER – Jesse is a confident and successful Hollywood producer, but still feels life is missing the kind of relationship he had in his teens with Muriel. Only purpose is to see Muriel.
MURIEL TATE – Muriel is a very attractive and still somewhat naïve, warm, generous and very impressed with Jesse. Unsure of meeting with him and yet can’t seem to make a decision to stay or go. Claims to be happily married.
ACT III – VISITORS FROM FOREST HILLS
NORMA HUBLEY – Norma is the mother of the bride and trying to appear calm in a crisis with everyone except her husband. Sways from trying to keep him calm and in control while passively and aggressively taking a stand for herself.
ROY HUBLEY – Roy is the father of the bride with the bills to prove it. Competitive business man, out of his league when dealing with emotions and marrying off daughter.
BORDON EISLER – Borden is the young confident groom, a man of few words…literally. (the role may be doubled with the Bellhop)
MIMSEY HUBLEY – Mimsey is a nervous bride, afraid of having marriage turn out like her parents’ marriage. (the role might be doubled with Jean McCormack)
