The play takes place in an all-night diner in Chicago, 1976.

The style of the piece is intense, non-histrionic, cinematic realism.
The un-credited co-author is David Mamet, and it sounds that way.

Roles:
Jack Rolf, Bob Barberson, detectives.
Late-thirties – late-forties. Loud, brash, sarcastic, funny, bullying, sentimental, suspicious. And underneath it all – nasty

Gene Czerwicki, uniformed patrolman. Somewhat older, early fifties, perhaps. Loud, braying. Combines the attributes of the detectives with a mean and jaded geniality.

George, counterman. Greek, Turkish, possibly, Italian, perhaps. He owns the place. Indeterminate middle-age, maybe flabby, maybe scrawny. Passive-aggressive, wary, ingratiating. No good reason to trust a soul on Earth.

Mickey, waitress. Age doesn’t matter, particularly. Single mom. Attractive in her way. She’s been around the block, and can take care of herself without giving offense. Somehow her glass is still half-full.

The Killer. African-American or Hispanic, but not necessarily. A kid, late teens - 20s. Street-tough. Sensitive. In a run-of-the-mill diner in an iffy neighborhood, he doesn’t stand out, particularly.

Cabbie. Middle-aged, upright citizen, African-American, Hispanic, or other minority preferred. Victim of a practical joke played by the detectives. A very nice scene at the top of the show.

Actors should bring a short (!) contemporary monolog. Direct from the heart is best.
We will provide sides from the play.

Non-Equity; all parts paid
