Bored by his privileged but mundane life, Henry Flemming sells his lucrative brokerage firm to buy a detective 

agency. On his very first case, and to the horror of his wife Karen and his two crazy neighbors Suzy and Stan, 

the Flemming living room begins to fill up with dead bodies. Even though Henry keeps showing up at home 

more disheveled and beaten up, he couldn't be happier. He's convinced he's found his life's work and Westport,

Connecticut will be safer for it! 

Performance dates:  April 23 - 26, 2021 at 7 pm each night


Character descriptions:

Henry Flemming - Our hero. He is an unassuming man who is frustrated with his boring life. He decides to quit

his mundane investment job and buy a small detective agency. He starts the show looking for more meaning in 

his life. At the beginning he's a little like Barney Fife and at the end he feels like James Bond.

Karen Flemming - his oblivious wife. She is very content with her comfortable upper middle class life and 

Henry's mid life crisis rocks her world.  She copes by drinking to a lot. She's always offering others drinks to 

help justify all her drinking to herself. By the end of the play, she starts to better understand why Henry feels 

more alive than ever and she tries to get on board with this new life.

Stan Spencer - The Flemming's pain in the neck neighbor. He's a psychiatrist who is pompous, arrogant, 

smug, superficial and isn't very interested in his wife.

Suzy Spencer - Stan's long suffering wife who knows he's a pompous jerk. She is sarcastic and tries to bait 

Stan to get a reaction from him. She has trouble hiding her disdain. Maybe that's why the Spencers are very 

quick to take a drink when one is offered.

Small Roles:

Walter Larsen - Karen's father, a distinguished self impressed rich businessman.

Lieutenant Davis - A plainclothes cop who is a closet gay.

Miss Havenhurst - Secretary of Henry's detective agency. She's young, sexy and has had a tough life.
