Dr. Dewey Maugham is a typical, unpretentious 1960’s-era psychiatrist with a fashion artist wife and a precocious 17-year-old daughter. Three years ago, he also had a nymphomaniac for a client – a situation with obvious potential for disaster. He’s proud to have kept everything in control, until unforeseen circumstances bring him tete-a-tete with temptation once again. Can he hold it all together? Or will his own, unsuspecting family bring things crashing down around him? You’ll find out in this laugh-a-minute comedy that’s been called “the funniest show of the season.” Make your appointment today!
- Dr. Dewey Maugham (plays mid 30’s or so) – a pretty straight-forward guy who gets caught-up in a mess he only partly helps create.
- Paula Maugham (mid 30’s) – Dewey’s wife, confident and self-aware, but capable of a jealous rage when it’s called for.
- Leslie Maugham (15 to 17) – the Maugham’s daughter, wise beyond her years, looking for a little excitement on the home front.
- Mr. Wellman (any age) – a patient of Dr. Maugham’s psychology practice, insecure and neurotic – the most physically comic character in the play.
- Dr. Alec Rice (30 to 60) – a friend and colleague to Dr. Maugham, a little too free with his friendly flirtation with Paula.
- Barbara Leonard (20 to 40) – a former patient of the Doctor, who has only covered up, rather than cured her penchant for “nymphomania”. (Will appear on-stage in lingerie.)
