Show Synopsis:

Nothing stands between the comedy team of Steve & Allen finally achieving their dreams of success. Nothing that is, except for an ill-timed fling between Allen and Steve's wife, Sara. The duo's flashy manager Roscoe Clementine joins in to cover up the affair and save Allen from getting found out by his partner. Steve & Allen’s comedic routines provide a hilarious running commentary in between the spicy dialogue in this comic door slamming farce.

Allen Feldman: (Suggested age: late 20’s) 

The goofball of the comedy duo, he is gawky, clumsy, cheesy, and self-deprecatingly funny. 


Roscoe Clementine: (Suggested age: 40’s-50’s)

Manager of the Steve and Allen comedy duo and narrator of the play. “He thinks he is hip, cool, classy, and debonair. In reality, he is brash, classless, sleazy, and flashy.” He abhors his (unseen) wife and adores perky Polly. 


Steve Tanner: (Suggested age: late 20’s)

The “straight” man of the comedy duo, he is good looking, suave, arrogant, and a tremendous flirt, which has put a strain on his marriage to Sara. His interest in his wife is renewed when she becomes the recipient of an incessant barrage of gifts from a mysterious secret admirer. 


Sara Tanner: (Suggested age: 20’s)

She is kind, lovely, vulnerable, and frustrated by her husband Steve’s inattentiveness. She accompanies the comedy duo as they travel and often laughs when nervous. 


Polly: (Suggested age: late 30’s)

She is a flashy, busty, energetic, lovable manicurist, who believes she is in a committed relationship with Roscoe Clementine. 


Sigourney: (Suggested age: 20’s)

As one of the most successful cover girl models in New York City, she is exquisitely beautiful and classy, and has a deep, sexy voice. Her sudden and mismatched romance with Allen is unlikely and surprisingly passionate.
