Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It's foolproof; what could possibly go wrong?


Director Todd R. Bennington is seeking the following:

3 Adult Males Ages 20s to 40s

3 Adult Females Ages 20s to 40s


Character Age Description

Bernard 30’s – 40’s Jacqueline’s husband. A handsome smart businessman. He is flirtatious, dapper, slick, a bit cocky, and self-assured.

Robert 30’s – 40’s Bernard’s best friend and Jacqueline’s lover. He is handsome, reserved, but a bit of a scoundrel. He has learned his ways from Bernard, but he is an overall nice guy.

Jacqueline 30’s – 40’s Bernard’s wife and Robert’s lover. She is lovely, assertive, romantic, and intelligent. She is a beautiful modern woman with a vindictive streak.

Suzette 20’s – 40’s She is the hired Cordon Bleu cook. She’s friendly, working-class, wily and funny. She has a great figure and can be compared to the swan beneath the duckling exterior. She has a French accent.

Suzanne 30’s – 40’s She is Bernard’s mistress. She is a voluptuous bombshell fashion model with a killer body. She is chic and stylish, yet she is easily flustered and a bit of a floozy. She has a French accent.

George 20’s – 40’s He is Suzette’s husband. He is big, strong, and intimidating in stature. He is very protective of Suzette. He is a no-nonsense kind of guy. He has a French accent.
