Synopsis:  It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews. The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill-popping leading lady, treading the boards after becoming infamous in Hollywood; and the playwright’s best friend, for whom the play was written but who passed up this production for a television series. Add to this a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre—and for comedy. But don’t worry: This play is sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for.


PETER AUSTIN – The playwright.  Everything is riding on tonight’s Broadway opening.

JULIA BUDDER – The producer.  Attractive and genuinely nice.

IRA DREW – The critic.  Wears glasses and has good stains on his tie.

FRANK FINGER – The director.  Soon to be knighted.

VIRGINIA NOYES – The star.  She has an electronic bracelet on her ankle.

JAMES WICKER – The best friend.  He used to be a stage actor.

GUS P. HEAD – Temporary help.  Fresh off of the farm.
