Character Type/Restrictions:

Seeking actors to play:

Seth Levy – late 30’s. Order taker. Spineless and weak willed. Doesn’t want trouble but always does what Vic tells him to do. He is sick of the life and wants to get out but doesn't know how. Seth is always the pessimist.

Red- A true believer who thinks that Vic, Seth, and Owen are the real deal. Does the leg work of the crew and enjoys the hard work, but has no idea he is being conned.

Darla Grant – con artist. Knows the angles, knows the game. She has all the skills and tools for being a successful and profitable televangelist, but isn't male. She has to be able to win an audience over with her smile, but also be the dominant one in the room.

Evelyn – Leslie Goode’s…mother? Evelyn is a mystery in that we don't really know her relationship to Leslie. She is very 'Tammy Faye Bakker'. She knows the game that is being played and is a master at it. She's a more successful version of Darla.

Agnes – Elderly woman. Long time caller and devoted member of Vic’s flock. She believes Vic wholeheartedly and with the fervor of a fanatic.

Supporting characters: Boy, Police officer, Newscaster 1, Newscaster 2, Newscaster 3, Interviewer, Caller 1, Caller 2, Caller 3.

Vic, Owen, and Leslie have been cast.
