Harold & Maude Character Breakdown:
*The roles of both Harold and Maude are both pre-cast.* All other roles are available.

Notes about casting/doubling: It is possible that roles of the Gardener and Chief Gardener could be played by the same actors as those playing Inspector Bernard and Sergeant Doppel. Additionally, it is conceivable that, for the right actress, the roles of all 3 of Harold’s computer dates (Sylvie, Nancy, and Sunshine) could be played by the same performer. Additional roles of removal men and mourners will be assigned from the named cast members.

About the Play:
Cult-classic Harold and Maude is a dark romantic comedy. Harold is a morbid young man obsessed with death and dying. Octagarian Maude is a bright and shinning soul, filled with a zest for life. When the pair strike up a friendship, Maude teaches Harold how to make the most of his time on earth. Together, they make the most unusual pair.

“A love story of the ages.” – Washington Daily News
