Angels in America, is a complex, often metaphorical play. At times it is a symbolic examination of AIDS and homosexuality in America in the 1980s. Certain major and minor characters are supernatural beings (angels) or deceased persons (ghosts). The play contains multiple roles for several of the actors. Initially and primarily focusing on a gay couple in Manhattan, the play also has several other storylines, some of which occasionally intersect.

ROLE BREAKDOWNS:

Casting 3 (Gender-Identifying Women), 4 (Gender-Identifying Men)

JOE PITT (late 20s early 30s) is a successful law clerk, mentored by the legendary conservative attorney Roy Cohn. Despite a promising career, Joe:a devout Mormon:has frequent arguments with his unstable wife, Harper Pitt. In its very indeterminateness, Joe’s internal struggle illustrates the experience of many homosexuals in the age of AIDS, without ever suggesting how closeted homosexuals should behave. Actor also plays PRIOR and THE ESKIMO

LOUIS IRONSON (30s) Prior’s Jewish lover. A word processor at a court in Brooklyn. Very intelligent and politically minded, yet flawed and emotionally fragile. He is filled with immense conflict and guilt when he abandons Prior on the onset of his illness. Actor also plays the ANGEL AUSTRALIA.

PRIOR WALTER (30s) Louis’s boyfriend who is diagnosed with AIDS at the top of the play. An aesthete from an old WASP family, he is a magnetic presence with tremendous wit and charisma. He is simultaneously deeply vulnerable and sardonic. Some nudity required. Actor also plays the MAN IN THE PARK.

BELIZE (late 20s-30s) African American. A registered nurse and former drag queen, he is Prior’s loyal best friend. Fabulous and stylish with a sharp sense of humor and a no-nonsense attitude. Actor also plays MR. LIES, the VOICE OF CALEB, and the ANGEL OCEANIA.

ROY M. COHN (late 50s-60s) based on the very successful and persuasive New York lawyer. Relentless and menacing in his pursuit of clout, he is a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. He vehemently denies his sexuality and diagnosis of AIDS to protect himself from vulnerability. Actor also plays PRIOR 2 and the ANGEL ANTARCTICA.

HARPER PITT (30s) Joe’s wife, an agoraphobic with a mild Valium addiction. Her crippling fears have alienated her from the world and from her husband, who she knows has demons of his own. She often escapes reality in a series of fascinating and revealing hallucinations. Some nudity required. Actress also plays MARTIN HELLER and the ANGEL AFRICANII.

HANNAH PITT (60s - early 70s) Joe’s opinionated, practically minded mother from Salt Lake City. A devout Mormon, she moves to New York when Joe comes out to her, and her warmth and humanity is revealed when she meets and cares for Prior. Actress also plays RABBI ISIDOR CHEMELWITZ, HENRY, ETHEL ROSENBERG, ALEKSII ANTEDILLUVIANOVICH PRELAPASARIANOV, and the ANGEL ASIATICA.

THE ANGEL (late 30s - 50s) Open to all ethnicities. A divine messenger sent from above to prepare Prior for his mission as a prophet. Terrifying and powerful, she should feel animalistic. Seeking an actress from a physical theatre background with great vocal prowess. Actress also plays EMILY, SISTER ELLA CHAPTER, A HOMELESS WOMAN, the VOICE OF ORRIN, and the VOICE OF THE MOTHER.

Murder on the Nile, adapted by Agatha Christie, the Queen of Crime, from her novel "Death on the Nile", is a suspenseful mystery that brings a group of suspicious characters together on an elegant steamer sailing down the Nile river. It is a richly charactered story where rising passions give way to one shocking act of violence after another and where the passengers - and the audience - are challenged to discover whodunnit.

ROLE BREAKDOWNS:

Casting 5 (Gender-Identifying Women), 5 (Gender-Identifying Men)


KAY MOSTYN (21 - 30; English accent) A wealthy young heiress who catches everyone’s eye when she walks into a room. She is complicated: she has the attitude of someone who knows what she wants and usually gets it, and yet she can show great affection for those she loves.

SIMON MOSTYN (25 - 35; English accent) Kay’s handsome bridegroom. He comes from a fine British family that has been penniless for some time. He presents himself as an adoring husband whose eyes have been opened to true love at last.

CANON PENNEFATHER (45 - 65; English accent) A cleric and Kay’s financial guardian. He can seem fanatical when talking about his causes, but he loves Kay very much and looks out for her welfare. In the play, he straddles the line of being both the detective and a suspect.

JACQUELINE DE SEVERAC (21 - 30; English accent) Kay’s lifelong best friend and Simon’s former fiancée. Where Kay was always poised, Jackie wears her heart on her sleeve. She is passionate and excitable, but she also possesses a cool brain. She would do anything for love.

MR. McNAUGHT (40 - 70; Scottish accent) The manager of the steamer Lotus. A genial man who acts as host and chief steward throughout the voyage.

MISS HELEN ETOLIOT-FFOULKES (55 - 75; English accent) A wealthy dowager, sort of a “Lady Bracknell” type, with the typical attitudes of a British colonialist. She thinks most people are beneath her station and that all business folk are trying to cheat her. When murder rears its ugly head, her concern is how much it inconveniences her.

CHRISTINA GRANT (18 - 25; English accent) Miss Ffoliot-Foulkes niece, a “poor relation” on her first trip abroad. She is earnest and kind, eager to please and to help, but not easily fazed by the rudeness of others.

WILLIAM SMITH (25 - 30; English accent) A wealthy young man who has rejected the values of his class and travels about the world soaking up anti-capitalist ideals and observing the upper classes with amusing cynicism. He hates “idle rich folk” like Kay Mostyn and is drawn to the sweet simplicity of Christina Grant.

LOUISE BOURGET (21 - 30; French accent) Kay Mostyn’s maid, a pretty but sulky girl always on the lookout for an opportunity to better her own situation. She speaks with a French accent.

DR. BESSNER (30 - 50; German/Austrian accent) A charming Middle European nerve specialist on vacation. He shows great compassion for those under his care and intense pride for his country.
