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
