Noel Coward's "Nude with Violin"
Its 1954, Paris France, and
the famous artist Paul Sorodin has died. At some time, we all wonder what will it be
like when people have to go through our desk drawers. Well forget our little ghosts,
this is an artist, and its not just his canvases that are colorful. This man has
really big ghosts, and you will roar with laughter as you learn about each one of them.
Noel Coward offers his wonderful writing, and great dialogue. This isn't
really a mystery, but you will be on the edge of your seat to find out what will happen

The Production Crew
Sorodin's personal valet. A very mysterious character. He has a dark
complexion. This is a very challenging part, but incredibly interesting.
Marie-Celeste: Paul Sorodin's maid. A small part that comes in and out throughout the play. Speaks only French.
Clinton Preminger, Jr.: American reporter from Life Magazine. Very eager, to the point of pushy. A very naive person.
Isobel Sorodin: Paul Sorodin's wife. They haven't seen each other for 27 years. 50 - 60. She is a challenging and comedic character. She has to show us why he liked her, left her, and who she is.
Jane Sorodin: Paul Sorodin's daughter. 25 - 35, unmarried. She is trying to find herself, and shows us who Paul Sorodin was. This is her first chance to really learn about her father, and she is like a kid in a candy shop.
Colin Sorodin: Paul Sorodin's son. 25 - 35, a major in the military. He's his mother's son. Hot tempered and commanding. A fun role if you like to be pompous and arrogant.
Pamela Sorodin: Colin's wife. 25 -35. She offers us a glimpse of Isobel when she was young. She has a forthright manner, and is accustomed to speaking her mind, which limits the scope of her conversation.
|Jacob Friedland: An
art dealer, shrewd and cunning, rather pompous on occasion. He was the dealer for
Anya Pavlikov: 40-60, Hot blooded Russian woman. Very physical. One of those great characters, where you command all the attention on the stage.
Cherry-May Waterton: 40 - 60, Very sexual person, retired prostitute? "Close friend" of Sorodin. Another fun character to play.
Fabrice: Cherry-Mae's boy toy. No lines, but lots of action including a fight scene.
Obadiah Lewellyn: Black man, no lines, but may do some singing.
George: Photographer for Life Magazine. A few lines over a couple of pages. Great little introductory role.
Stotesbury: 14 year old boy. A small, but important part. Prefer someone 5'4" or shorter. Must be able to "play" a real brat.
