    The fall play will be Exit the Body by Fred Carmichael. "A mystery writer rents a New England house that is the rendezvous point for some jewel thieves. The focal point of the set is the closet which opens into a living room and a library. A body found in the closet promptly disappears only to be succeeded by another. The hunt for the jewels reaches a climax at two A.M. when four couples unknown to each other turn up to search. Not since the days of Mack Sennett has there been such an hilarious series of entrances and exits." from the Samuel French website.

     

    Available Roles:

    Lillian Seymour: Attractive, exceedingly well-dressed woman. Lillian is a top-flight designer and a friend of Crane. Lives in the New England country home down the hill. (Similar age to Crane, age 30-50)

     

    Jenny: Young country girl dressed in gaudy, inexpensive cotton with hair in pigtails or a ponytail. Loud, but the epitome of innocence, she is mesmerized by Randolph. She is the less than helpful maid of the rental cottage. (Age 18 to 25)

     

    Randolph: cheap crook and proud of it, trying to look like TV’s idea of a hoodlum with a pencil-thin moustache, slicked-down hair, flashy sport coat, dark shirt, and bright tie. His speech is not the best and he is determined to work at it until he becomes a top crook. He uses Jenny to make a name for himself as a crook by finding the diamonds that the dead jewel thief must have left in the New England country home before he died. (Age 23 to 30)

     

    Helen O'Toole: very efficient real estate saleswoman, perhaps a trifle too folksy and straight-laced at times but she means well. She rents the cottage and will help Vernon solve the mystery. (age 30-40)

     

    Kate Bixley: Crane’s secretary, dressed in a tailored outfit, with an irrepressible sense of humor that often borders on the sarcastic, but she doesn’t really mean it. She and Crane have a wonderful relationship, more that of friends than boss and secretary. Kate is a New Yorker that would just as soon never leave New York City. (Slightly older than Crane, age 30-50)

     

    Crane Hammond: An author, she is the type of woman one likes immediately. She is attractive and possesses charm to the highest degree. She is bright, gay, and witty, an altogether likeable person. She has rented the New England country house to get away from New York City and write. The previous tenant was a jewel thief who died before unloading the goods from the last heist. (age 30-50)

     

    Vernon Cookley: Middle-aged New Englander who has never seen any more of the country than ten miles outside of Birchville. He rarely lets an expression creep over his face and, in true New England fashion is leery of everyone and everything. He wears glasses and speaks with a new England twang. Vernon is the local employment: taxi driver, sheriff, dog catcher, Justice of the Peace, sexton of the Church. (age 30-40)

     

    Lyle Rogers: Lillian’s new second husband, a charming, very attractive man. Wasn’t he dead? Why is he introduced as Crane’s husband? (age 30-50)

     

    Philip Smith: A man of average physique with amnesia who joins in on the evening of diamond hunting, just who is he, anyway? (age 30-40)

     

    Richard Hammond: Crane’s husband, a typically nice looking businessman, who arrives late and probably wonders if he could go out and come back in again. (slightly older than Crane, age 30-50)
