SUMMARY

The upcoming New York play “The Moon is Scarred” is in the midst of rehearsals and having an array of rough patches. When the new understudies are introduced the tensions become thicker and everyone is on edge. The sins must be egregious because it ultimately claims the lives of two people in the cast. The audience will have an enjoyable time with this “Whodunit” as they get to participate in questioning the suspects in Act 2. Three possible endings exist allowing itself to maintain the illusion that even when you think you know, you may not.

CHARACTERS

Michael Phillips: Director of “The Moon is Scarred”, his first big break and desperately wants this to succeed, tries to be authoritative – 30+

Daniel McCreedy: An older actor who, at the height of his career, was the top but now is washed up after a couple bad roles and trying to get back in the spotlight – 45+

Julia Fine: An older actress who has done a few movies, more of a shy personality around people but has been known in her day to be a cut throat for a role – 40+.

Stacey Lytle: Loud and brazen, she doesn’t care what happens in the show as long as she looks good, she is not too happy to be in a supporting role for the first time and she lives off endorsements – 30-40s.

Marie Stephens: Just graduated with a masters in theater and the performing arts. She keeps to herself and is a “watcher” of people before she speaks, but when she does it is to the point – Mid-to-late 20s.

Blaine Woods: The “good guy” of the show, Blaine appreciates the opportunity given to him and wants to try and learn all he can – 20s.

Katelyn Fitzgerald: Fresh off the bus from Minnesota, she aspires to become a great actress. Very much the super excitable, doe-eyed, dreamer wants more than anything to make it – Early 20s.

Lt. James Scott: A lieutenant of NYPD who has been assigned the case of the murder. His time on the streets has taught him that not being so stern all the time has made his job bearable – 30+.
