Synopsis: Synopsis

City of Angels takes place in glamorous 1940s Hollywood. While trying to maintain his artistic integrity and marriage, a young novelist, Stine, is attempting to write a screenplay for fast-talking Hollywood producer, Buddy Fidler. As he creates the story about a private detective, Stone, the characters of Stine's imagination come to life on stage. Beautiful socialite Alaura Kingsley hires Stone to find her missing stepdaughter. The stepdaughter ends up showing up naked in Stone's bed. Soon, Stone is beat up by a bunch of hoodlums hired to get him off the Kingsley case. In the end, though, Stine confronts his sell-out, alter ego Stone and the manipulative Buddy and quits the project. After regaining his dignity, he is able to regain the love of his wife Gabby, and all ends well.

This is a highly stylized, sexy, film-noiresque piece that will require great comic timing, physical dexterity and the ability to play multiple characters.

Characters

Stone | Baritone, plays 30-45 years old
Movie World character. Stone is the private detective in Stine’s screenplay, “City of Angels”. A true leading man with grit, courage and charm, he’s everything Stine wishes he could be. But they both share a weakness for beautiful women.

Stine | Baritone, plays 30-45 years old
Real World character. A struggling writer who is working on his first screenplay adaptation from one of his more popular novels. He desperately wants this project to take off so that he can start earning some real money and become the famous writer he longs to be. Stine loves his wife, but his own insecurities keep leading him astray.

Oolie | Alto, plays 25-45 years old
Movie World character, Stone’s heart-of-gold-secretary. She’s sharp witted and can see Stone’s real motives even before he can. She’s also his right-hand in solving crimes and often comes to his rescue, though she longs to be more than someone’s Girl Friday.

Donna | Alto, plays 25-45 years old
Donna is Oolie’s Real World match, Stine’s secretary. But sadly, Stine doesn’t have Stone’s will-power and is having an affair with her, despite being in love with his wife. Donna knows this and regrets settling for being second fiddle.
