Audition Notice:

THE DEATH OF ZUKASKY (A comedy) by Richard Strand
THE STORY: Preparing for their usual morning meeting, three sales associates discover their supervisor dead, with his feet up on the desk. All three are next in line for Zukasky’s job.
A.C. Tattums immediately begins to scheme; Anne is insecure and paranoid; and Barry is all indecision and blithering. What’s worse, their department head, Marlino, announces Barry has the position, leaving Anne stupefied and unacknowledged for her ten years with the corporation. A.C., intent of climbing to the very top, begins to plant suggestions in his coworkers’ minds, pitting them against one another.
AC Tattums (male) – Sales Associate (30’s to 40’s) A clever, manipulative, double-dealing upstart who employs devious tactics to breed fear and confusion among his coworkers. A charismatic rogue, out for number one.
Anne Desmond: Sales Associate (30’s to 40’s) A smart woman (though not as clever as A.C.) Very capable and honest but also a bit high-strung and insecure. Damn tired of hitting her head on the glass ceiling of the “old boys” network.
Barry Mills: (30’s to 40’s) Sales Associate. A clueless, incompetent “yes-man”, always confused and easily manipulated. Afraid of the coffee-maker.
Henry Marlino: (40’s to 60’s) The Big Boss – easily flattered, self-important, likes to tell pointless stories. Knows next to nothing about what actually goes on in the corporation.
Theodore Zukasky (40’s to 60’s) A deceased Executive (appears briefly at start of play)
