NOISES OFF CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

 

***THE ROLE OF BELINDA HAS BEEN CAST ***
(Some actors play two characters:  one onstage character and one offstage character.  This is a farce.  We are looking for actors that have great comedic timing)
FEMALE CHARACTERS
Dotty Otley / Mrs. Clackett 45-55:

(Offstage character:  Dotty): A late-middle-aged American actress. Forgetful. Dating Garry, though she attempts to make him jealous by meeting with Freddy.
(Onstage character:  Mrs. Clackett): A Cockney Housekeeper for the Brent’s home in England. Hospitable, though slow.
Brooke Ashton / Vicki 25-35:
(Offstage character:  Brooke): A young inexperienced American actress. Pays no attention to other performers, either in performance or backstage. She seems as though she is not really present – like she is somewhere else inside her head. Is always losing her contact lenses. One-third of a Lloyd–Poppy–Brooke love triangle.
(Onstage character: Vicki): An English woman who works for Inland Revenue and is trying to woo Roger.
***Please note, this actress must be comfortable in her underwear.  She performs a significant part of the performance in her underwear. If you wish, please review the Hollywood movie for reference.   
Poppy Norton-Taylor 25-35:
American Stage Manager. Emotional and over-sensitive, and envious of Brooke, whom she understudies. Carrying Lloyd’s child. One-third of a Lloyd-Poppy-Brooke love triangle.

 

MALE CHARACTERS
Lloyd Dallas 35-45:
The director of the play “Nothing On.” Temperamental. One third of a Lloyd–Poppy–Brooke love triangle.
Garry Lejeune / Roger 30-40:
(Offstage character:  Garry): An American actor who never finishes a sentence. Always is completing sentences with, “you know…” Easily fired up, repeatedly tries to attack Freddy after believing that Dotty was cheating on him with Freddy. Speech affectations disappear onstage but are ever- present offstage. Dating Dotty.
(Onstage character:  Roger): An English Real estate agent who is attempting to rent Flavia’s and Phillip’s home, but uses it for his own personal benefit.
Frederick Fellows /Phillip Brent / Sheikh 30-40:
(Offstage character:  Freddy): An American actor with a serious fear of violence and blood. Gets nosebleeds easily. Often questions the meaning of his lines and moves. Blames himself often for things going wrong.
(Onstage character:  Phillip Brent): An Englishman who lives out of the country with his wife Flavia to avoid paying taxes. He enters the country knowing that if he is caught by Inland Revenue, he will lose most of the year’s income.
(Onstage character:  Sheikh): A Middle-Eastern, interested in renting Flavia’s and Phillip’s home and is the spitting image of Phillip.
Selsdon Mowbray / Burglar 50-60:
(Offstage character:  Selsdon Mowbray): An elderly alcoholic Englishman who hides his bottles onstage. If he is not in sight while rehearsing, the stage crew must find him before he passes out. Is hard of hearing when he wants to be.
(Onstage character:  Burglar): Old Cockney man, breaking into the Brent’s home.
Timothy Allgood 25-45:
An over-worked American Assistant Stage Manager. Understudies Selsdon and Freddy.
