The six-member cast consists of two men and four women ages 50-70.

Character Descriptions:

*Bud Davis (age 70ish) - he is weak, frail looking and appears at first glance to have “One foot in the grave.”  However, he has become renowned amount the female guests at the Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast as “Bud the Stud.”  He enchants them all with his silver tongue and sexual prowess.  (Elderly, chauvinistic, brazen, but likeable)

*Mrs. Stancliffe (age 60ish) - the owner of the Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast.  She is a severe woman in both dress and manner.  Precise in speech and punctuality, she gives the impression of efficiency and competence.  Pursued by her next-door neighbor Henry, she refuses to let him into her life, until surprising events finally bring them together. (Sensible, practical, punctual, business like, menopausal)

*Henry Mitchell (age 60ish) – a retired chemist and Mrs. Stancliffe’s “Gentleman Caller.”  He is mild mannered and has proposed to Mrs. Stancliffe every afternoon for twenty years.  He is the perfect gentleman and shows a great deal of respect for all the woman around him.  (Gentle, caring, thoughtful, loveable)

*Victoria Ambrose (age 50ish) – a renowned author who writes steamy romantic novels.  She pines for romance in her personal life, but finds none.  (Pretty, serious, intelligent, and menopausal)

*Hillary Hudson (50ish) – she is beautiful, well educated, articulate and sophisticated in both manner and dress.  She is an old friend and co-worker of Henry’s. (Elegant, charming, intelligent, menopausal)

*Charmaine Beaurgard (age 50ish) – is the quintessential southern belle.  She is definitely at the Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast for “Bud the Stud.”  (Voluptuous, out-going, gushing, demonstrative, menopausal)

 

The Story:

Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast has been successful for many years.  Her guests (nearly all women) return year after year.  Her next-door neighbor, Bud “Bud the Stud” Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons.  The fun begins as her 3 guests arrive and they turn the table on Bud and Mrs. Stancliffe’s suitor, Henry, in an uproarious funny attempt to show them who is the smarter sex.
