One Actor, 40 Characters

“This devastatingly funny play follows a day in the life of Sam, an out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at the number-one restaurant in town. A cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation: impatient socialites, celebrity assistants, top restaurant reviewers, and even a mobster; not to mention pressure from a hot-headed chef, feckless boss, his agent, his father, and oh so many more. Graham Ward returns to the CRT stage tackling 40 different characters in this comedic tour-de-force!” – Creede Repertory Website
