The Play:
Tons of Money | A Farce in 3 Acts
First written and produced in 1922 this play was a great success in London’s West End and provided the thrust of a whole series of subsequent later series of productions called the Aldwych farces! The version produced by Scarborough Players is an adaptation penned by master farceur and award-winning playwright Allan Ayckbourn. When it was produced in 1986 at Britain’s National Theatre it garnered great commercial success. It is the story of an unsuccessful and almost bankrupt,aristocratic inventor Aubrey Allington who inherits the life interest in a fortune which is to revert on his death to his cousin George Maitland. As Cousin George is thought to have died abroad, the inventor’s wife has the brilliant idea of "dying" so that he can resurrect himself as his cousin and avoid paying his enormous debts. Complications arise in the form of George's wife, another Maitland imposter (the butler's brother) and finally the real George Maitland himself! In a series of plot twists, outrageous and hilarious fake deaths, mistaken identities and shenanigans the audience is treated to a high octane and hilarious romp. The action takes place in a 1920’s English manor house which is both inhabited and visited by a large and diverse group of conniving characters. Great fun for the whole family and a great  night of comedy for all to enjoy.

Characters:  
Ages listed are a guide for how the character should appear onstage, not necessarily the age of the actor

Male
Aubrey Allington -the husband and hereditary home owner. Mid to late 30s to mid 40s. Aloof, spoiled, aristocratic but in an ineffectual and naive way, inherited wealth which has now been spent. Few life skills, a dreamer but not in control. The adjective clueless comes to mind!

Sprules - the Butler. Late 40s -60s. Long-time in service with the Allington family. A romantic, inquisitive, and calculating, measured man with ideas above his station. A snob but in a subservient way to others in service. A reluctant servant but severe and precise in public.

Giles-the Gardener, anywhere from late 40s -80! Slow, ponderous and unfazed by anything he sees or hears. Lives in a parallel universe of gardening, shrubbery. Moves
at a slower pace than all other characters. A life-long bachelor with romantic or lecherous tendencies. Comes from a different age and is out of touch with the modern era.

James Chesterman -A solicitor, Late 20s -40.Smart, organized, ambitious, precise, mannered and a catch although he doesn't know it. Not upper class but educated. Too focused on work and career to be anything other than single.

Henery - a Plumber turned imposter. Early to mid 30s or older.A relative of Sprules. Of lower-class, but a not unattractive bachelor. An opportunist and part-time actor. Handsome in a rough sort of way. A ladies' man but a gold - digger who lacks any real talent or hard work ethic. Easily-manipulated. Authentic not artificial.

George Maitland -the traveller and cousin of Aubrey. Late 30's -45. A dreamer and philanthropist. A rumpled ex-patriate. Has great travel experience but lacks basic knowledge of family life
and commitment. Easily-manipulated and confused.

Female
Louise Allington -the wife and homemaker, Mid 30s to early 40s
Shrewd and devoted spouse. Well-bred but not a snob, direct, a take-control attitude, fashion-conscious,A pragmatist and good schemer. A lady of the age and all for women's rights. Formerly a gold-digger, now a schemer. Simpson-the parlourmaid, late 20s-40. Attractive and easily manipulated, fun-loving but somewhat irreverent. A gold-digger who has eyes on advancement through romance!

Benita Mullett -the Allingtons' aunt, late 50s -70s. A straight-
talking and impatient woman. Upper- class, and late Victorian in attitude and sensibility. Naturally suspicious and opinionated about everything and bigoted about most things outside of her consciousness and control. Slightly deaf but unaccepting of her condition.Not to be trifled with.

Jean Everard -Louise's best friend. Mid 30's -40.Stylish and upper-middle class, but vapid debutante who has married into money. Lacks intellect but uses her sexuality to advance through life. Has had multiple lovers before and will in the future. Self-absorbed.

The play in a nutshell:  When Edward Connell Powers suffers a stroke, he must turn over the running of his furniture factory, the town’s largest employer, to his son James. When he comes home from hospital, James hires the only caregiver he can find, Gloria Delaney, a single-mom, high school drop-out whose hair is bigger than her sense of worth. It seems a doomed relationship but little by little over Edward’s long convalescence, she wins his respect for her humour, spirit and intelligence while she sees beyond his intimidating, crusty exterior. Gloria helps him as he seeks to rebuild his strength so he can return to work, even though it will thwart his son’s global ambitions for the family business. Each boosts the other in their times of doubt and need, crossing barriers that would normally divide people from the opposite ends of the social spectrum.
 

CHARACTERS (ages refer to characters, not actors – and are approximate):

POWERS – About 70. Owner of the largest business in town.  A conservative business man.  Spends most of the play in a wheelchair.  Actor must be able to move as though walking  is difficult.

JAMES – About 45. Conventional, modern, money-first businessman.  Powers’ son.

DARRYL – 20’s. Very relaxed attitude to life.  Never wants to miss out on opportunities for sex. Gloria’s boyfriend.

It is up to Orgon’s faithful wife, Elmire, to expose the evil of their hypocritical house guest.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity.

Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their  money.  Freddy  Benson  more  humbly  swindles  women  by  waking  their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting  on  a  train,  they  attempt  to  work  together,  only  to  find  that  this  small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement:  the  first  one  to  extract  $50,000  from  a  young  female  target,  heiress,  Christine Colgate, wins, andthe other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues
that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!

New Ideas Festival does not pay fees, royalties, or a box office share to participants. Alumnae Theatre Company retains creative discretion over the festival as a whole. The focus of the festival is script development, so technical requirements for the plays are kept to a minimum. NIF is an exciting opportunity to work one-on-one with a playwright to develop a new work.

If you are interested in directing a play in the New Ideas Festival, email newideasfestival@gmail.com by Oct 14, 2016. Please make the subject line “Director Application (your name)” and provide a directing CV or paragraph description of your experience. You will receive further details once you have submitted your application.

As our industry has far fewer female directors, women directors are especially encouraged to apply.
