Leonardo DiCaprio does NOT make an appearance in this TITANIC, a dirty-minded little comedy about family values - but Richard and Victoria do (accompanied by their son Teddy, a 20 year old, who dresses like hes 12). A terrible argument ensues, including threats of divorce, extra-marital affairs and then things get strange - bondage happens, clothes go missing, people run about in their underwear and hide small animals in intimate body parts. We said it got stranger did we forget to mention theres an iceberg too? As an opener to TITANIC, THE ACTORS NIGHTMARE is a short comic play involving an accountant named George, who is mistaken for an actor's understudy and forced to perform in a play for which he doesn't know any of the lines.
The Actors Nightmare
George Spelvin (male, 20s-30s) A confused accountant thrown into a stage play that he has never heard of or rehearsed
Meg, the stage manager (female, 20s-30s) Pleasant, efficient. Steps in onstage to play several roles
Sarah Siddons (female, 30s-40s) A glamorous actress
Dame Ellen Terry (female, 20s-30s) Actress, perhaps slightly younger than Sarah
Henry Irving (male, 28-33) Grand, Shakespearean actor
Victoria Tammurai (female, 40s-50s) Expensively dressed, with a slight world weariness
Richard Tammurai (male, 40s-60s) Her husband. Old money, possibly English accent
Teddy Tammurai, their son (male, 20 years old) He is dressed (and treated) like a 14 year old by his clueless parents
Lidia (female, 20s) The Captains Daughter, who exhibits several personalities in the play. She also sings.
The Captain (male, 40s-60s) Very distinguished looking, but often a bit clueless, as well
Higgins, the sailor (male, 20s-30s) Muscular, good looking, of possible Nordic descent
NOTE: Some of the actors in TITANIC will also be cast in THE ACTORS NIGHTMARE
