Love, Lies, & The Doctor's Dilemma Logo

by: Michael Parker and Susan Parker

Directed by:
Michael A. Muller


Synopsis: Take ordinary circumstances, add some lies, create a dilemma, and love? Joan lives with the great love of her life and in an effort to hide their relationship from her overbearing sister-in-law, she lies about his identity. One little white lie leads to another and then others as Vinny the mob enforcer, a dress-wearing son, and a walking catastrophe neighbor add to the chaos and confusion! You will be asking yourself - is the doctor in?


Director Michael A. Muller is seeking the following:
3 Adult Males, ages: mid 20's to 50+
3 Adult Females, ages: mid 20's to 50+



Character Age


Joan Scheller (F) 45+ A middle-aged widow. Unconventional and free-spirited. Quick-thinking and resourceful. Doesn't seem to care about what others think of her, except for her sister-in-law.
Sandy (M) 45+ Easy-going and mild-mannered. Gardener, lover, psychiatrist?
Vinny "The Enforcer" (M) 30+ The quintessential Italian mobster. A tough acting but sensitive pussy-cat with a strong NJ accent (think Sopranos). PLEASE NOTE: Actor must be comfortable with physical comedy. He gets knocked down and knocked out multiple times during the show.
Olivia St. Claire (F) 30+ A wealthy, aging movie star. She never enters a room but always "makes an entrance". A well-meaning but overbearing woman who asserts her authority upon everyone.
Rachael (F) 20s She lives in her own world and is nosey and takes liberties. With her flighty demeanor and malapropisms, you wonder how she survives. She is, however, sweet, thoughtful, and kind.
Chris (M) 20s On the run from the Mob but does not take his situation very seriously. Seemingly out of work and living a carefree life, but has a secret. PLEASE NOTE: Actor must be comfortable wearing a dress and heels. Also, must be comfortable with light physical comedy.
