“LOVE, SEX, & THE I.R.S.” The classic farce that everyone should be doing – especially around tax time! Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are out of work musicians who room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the “couple” they’re going to be investigated. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon’s fiancée, Kate. Complicating matters further, Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon’s back, Jon’s mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son’s fiancée, and Leslie’s ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won’t see her anymore. Like a cross between I Love Lucy and Some Like it Hot.

Roles 

 

KATE DENNIS – The attractive fiance of Jon Trachtman and the fling of Leslie Arthur. (Involves kissing two different men in the show) 

  
LESLIE ARTHUR – An energetic overreactive out of work musician who is in love with his roommates fiance while trying to guide his way out of his own current relationship by avoidance. Very Jack Tripper like. (Involves kissing in the role) 

 
MR. JANSEN - The Janitor, caretaker, and landlord of the building. Always trying to inject himself into the lives of his tennants. Think Mr. Furley, Mr. Roper, and/or Schneider 

 
JON TRACHTMAN – A confused out of work musician trying to talk his way out of any uncomfortable situation. But too many lies are hard to keep track of. (Involves kissing) 

  
FLOYD SPINNER – An intimidating, frustrated, nerdy glasses wearing, and briefcase toting I.R.S. agent who wishes for much more in his own life. Think either Horseshack or Chris Farley character who lives in a van down by the river. 

 
VIVIAN TRACHTMAN – Overbearing controlling mother of John Tractman. A thick Jewish or some form of foreign accent could help. Gets very drunk as the play progresses.  

 
CONNIE – An attractive and extremely fast over talker 

 
ARNOLD GRUNION- A shady mysterious looking character at least 40+ years of age.  

 

 

EXTREMELY Physical overacting comedic performers. Includes running, lifting, tripping, falling, being sat upon etc... Not for the faint of heart. This is a three act play and will be played at a supersonic pace! Be Prepared.
