CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS

ARTHUR PRZYBYSZEWSKI (SHUB-ER-SHEF-SKI) – Male late 50s – Polish-American, owner of

his immigrant parents’ dated donut shop, an ex-hippie draft-dodger who lives a

disappointed and unambitious life, fight choreography will be required of the character.

FRANCO WICKS – African American (Male) early 20s – intelligent and idealistic, has written

what he considers the new Great American Novel – all he needs is validation, has

massive gambling debts and has taken a break from college to work.

MAX TARASOV – Male 45-55 – Russian immigrant who owns the video shop next door; a

humorous bigot without being aware of it, he is ambitious and good natured. Must be able to

learn a slight Russian accent.

OFFICER RANDY OSTEEN – Female 40-50 – neighborhood officer, kind, helpful, interested in

Arthur though he is unaware.

OFFICER JAMES BAILEY – African American Male 35 -45 – Randy’s beat partner, a matter of fact

guy who is a Star Trek fan.

LADY BOYLE – Female 60+ – Homeless woman, often less than lucid, counts on Arthur for a

handout daily, has moments of clarity and wisdom.

LUTHER FLYNN – Male 40-50 – Irish/Italian American, a thug, loan shark, and bookie. Has a

chronic ulcer, pops antacids. Not someone you want as an enemy. Fight choreography will be

required of this character.

KEVIN MAGEE – Male 20- 30s – Irish thug, Flynn’s minion. Not a nice guy.

KIRIL IVANKIN – Male 20s- 30s – Recent Russian Immigrant, nephew of Max. Should be big and

look scary – a strongman type. Speaks no English (lines are in Russian, will be taught to speak

phonetically)
