The Happily Ever After Pill
a faith-based romantic comedy by Andrew Librizzi of Pathlight Entertainment
Seeking performers able to portray:
DR. FRANCIS MARTIN (30-40): L.A. psychiatrist who considers his own Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “quite useful” in his life. It pushes him "like a mad-man with a whistle” and “it could always be neutralized through any number of pharmaceuticals.” Now, he’s hoping a medical prescription can save his marriage to Abigal Martin.
ABIGAL MARTIN (30-40): Wife of Dr. Francis Martin, L.A.’s newest love doctor, and daughter of Mary Jane Jones, a famous feminist activist who taught her brother to cook instead of me as a statement against a chauvinistic society’s dictation of sexist roles. Abigal is a soft-spoken English teacher, but not for long after she discovers that Dr. Martin’s promised extraordinary garden was made of rocks.
FRANKIE (THE FIRST) MARTINELLI (60-70): One-time, hard-nosed, featherweight Italian boxer-turned-head gardener of the Goldberg estate
THE EVE GRAYSON KRUPNICK (60-70): Aging sixties, silver screen sex goddess, Miss Forty Carrot Love wants to sail off on the intimate journey of PSYCHO-therapy with Dr. Francis Martin. (Loosely based on Zsa Zsa Gabor)
WALTER KRUPNICK (60-70): Married to The Eve Grayson, Walter Krupnick, a wealthy, big-time movie producer, has been “much married” too many times to remember. His interest in Dr Martin’s happily-ever-after pill is more financial self-defense. (Think Wallace Shawn in Princess Bride)
