Taylor Taylor (m), 40, British actor, unemployed has-been action star; Franz (m), 35, American con artist pretending to be a Swiss-German businessman; Rosie (f), 45, head writer of a soap opera with New Yorker accent; Lana (f), 35, American con artist pretending to be Franz’ business partner; Man in Trenchcoat (m extra), 45, Italian; Waitress (f extra), 25, French; blonde (f extra), 25, American supermodel.
“At the Hollywood Café, Taylor Taylor, unemployed has been action star, must prove to the head writer of a soap opera that he can indeed play a villain—on the spot! Taylor has to ‘be’ the character of Don Greco, international mobster and does just that, conning a pair of con artists in the process.
• “In the end, however, things are not quite what they seem!”
• "Since my play ("About Don Greco") was listed on the Small Cast One Act Guide, it has been performed in California. Nevada, and New York. The site is truly a meeting place for the theatrical world! Best wishes, C.E. Schandl."—e-mail received January 5, 2007.
