Play Synopsis

Middle-aged and married, overworked and overweight, Barney Cashman wants to join the sexual revolution before it’s too late and arranges three seductions: the first, Elaine Navazio proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses; Bobbi Michele is next, a 20-ish actress who’s too kooky by half; finally comes September and Jeanette Fisher, a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney’s best friend.

The Characters – Casting 1m, 3f

BARNEY CASHMAN, a forty-seven-year-old owner of a seafood restaurant who is afraid that the sexual revolution of the 1960’s is passing him by.

ELAINE NAVAZIO, a somewhat coarse woman in her late thirties who believes, when she accepts Barney’s invitation to meet him at his mother’s apartment, that he wants only a quick sexual encounter. 

BOBBI MICHELE, a twenty-seven-year-old unemployed entertainer who visits Barney to repay twenty dollars that he loaned to her to pay an accompanist who assisted her during an audition.

JEANETTE FISHER, a contemporary of Barney and a family friend, a very depressed lady who has decided to repay her husband’s confession of infidelity by having an affair with Barney.
