SHOW DESCRIPTION:

Providing the inspiration for the TV series Columbo, the theatrical predecessor Prescription: Murder tells the story of a brilliant psychiatrist and his mistress who hatch a plot to murder his neurotic, possessive wife. The execution of their plan and the creation of their perfect alibi depends on a bizarre impersonation. Lt. Columbo must engage the psychiatrist in a duel of wits until the doctor succeeds in having Columbo removed from the case...

Auditions will be a cold read from the script, no preparation is necessary.

CASTING REQUIREMENTS:

Casting needs: 3 females, 3/4 males.

MISS PETRIE

A pleasant, efficient woman with a genuine liking for people

DR. ROY FLEMMING

A polished, urbane New York psychiatrist. Highly civilized, pragmatic, with a cold, functioning intelligence.

CLAIRE FLEMMING

A brittle, sardonic product of New York's East side. She shows the strain of a loveless marriage.

SUSAN HUDSON

Extremely attractive, with a hint of latent sensuality. She is not particularly complicated, but as the play progresses she shows the burden of the increasing tension.

LIEUTENANT COLUMBO

A rumpled police official of indeterminate age. He seems to be bumbling and vague, with an overly apologetic, almost deferential manner. This masks an innate shrewdness, and foxy knowledge of human nature.

DAVE GORDON

A smooth, boyish lawyer with his eye on a political future.

DELIVERY BOY

Could be played by the same actor as Dave Gordon; only briefly seen.
