LOBBY HERO follows Jeff, a luckless but likable 20-something late night security guard of a Manhattan apartment building. His supervisor, William, and 2 cops, Dawn and Bill, often visit him during their nightly rounds. Loyalties for all become strained to the breaking point when William must make a decision that might be illegal; and Dawn finds that she has to stand up to her seasoned partner. The play echoes contemporary issues of “Me too” and the impact of racial prejudice.
*PLEASE NOTE: The character descriptions including age ranges are general descriptions.
JEFF – White Male, 25-29 – A uniformed security guard; he is talkative and curious; he is somehow both anxious and relaxed, tranquil and uncomfortable. Needs to have strong comic timing.
WILLIAM – Black Male, 25-39 – Jeff’s supervisor; he is serious, responsible, intense and ambition.
DAWN – White Female, 20-29 – Dawn is a rookie cop. She is tough, vulnerable, guarded and smart.
BILL - White Male, 30-39 – A seasoned policeman. Bill is charming and arrogant; he is aggressive and dramatic with both his warmth and his rage.
