Most murder mysteries are based on the concept of "who dunnit?" This sexy comedy is a case of "will the murders ever get done?'" A gay couple decides to hold a most unusual dinner party. They have invited the one person that hurt them the most in their life in order to murder them. The plan is simple: poisoned martinis will be served to the two guests. How complicated can it be? Chaos ensues when an uninvited guest shows up who won't drink alcohol. One guest has become a born again Christian and plans to redeem the Gay couple from their life of sin. Another will only drink beer. Oh, did we mention that not everyone in this gathering of five is being truthful and they may also have ulterior motives, of which murder is also a part? You'll laugh as you squirm in your seat not knowing if, who, how, and when someone might get murdered! We did the original world premiere in 2006 and it brings us much pleasure to bring it back.
The play will be directed by Sarah Nichole Thompson and Mark-Brian Sonna.
Kiss the Boys will be performed at the Stone Cottage Theatre, Addison Theatre Centre, 15650 Addison Road, Addison TX 75001 April 18-28.
Acting roles available: 3 men, 1 woman.
Richard: An Anesthesiologist in his late 30’s to 40’s. He is debonair, sophisticated, very charming, and intelligent. He is Yavar's partner and has plotted the perfect murder. He is very self assured but when things go awry he becomes sadistic. He is the type audiences love to hate.
Doug: An insurance salesman 20's to 30's. He isn't particularly bright. He is Richard's ex, and now an ex-gay determined to save Richard from his life of sin. He arrives to the party with his new girlfriend, Luli. He's become very much a hetero "bro". Unfortunately for him and to his girlfriend's dismay when he does start drinking, the uber-gay comes out in full force.
Sage: A wanna be artist in his 20's. He is Yavar's ex, and though he has a thing for "daddy's" especially if they have money. He is very much the life of the party, a total twink and perpetually horny.
Yavar: this role will be reprised by Mark-Brian Sonna from the original production.
Luli: Pronounced Lou-lee, a florist 20's to 40's. Stunning to look at till she opens her mouth. Vulgar, crass, no-nonsense, and lacking a self-edit button. She is disillusioned with her boyfriend Doug, but takes an instant liking to Yavar. She is also quite nosey and soon figures out that the dinner party is not what is all cracked up to be and begans thwarting Richard's plans.
