Synopsis: Set in contemporary South Boston, the play follows Margie Walsh, who’s has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start.
MIKE: White, about 50. A fertility doctor. Margie's old high school boyfriend. Married to Kate, about 20 years his junior. Grew up in Southie, but he got out. Smart. Proud. Charming. Has grown accustomed to the comfortable life, but can summon the Southie fighter when provoked. Margie comes to him asking for a job.
STEVIE: White, 20-25. Manager of a Dollar Store, and Margie's supervisor. His boss forces him to fire Margie for being late. He’s sensitive and serious. A bit of an outcast in his Southie neighborhood. Raised in a family hit hard by poverty, prison and illness. Stevie has a stable job and has started to date a girl he likes. He’s trying to make something of himself.
KATE: African American, early 30's. Married to Michael. Sweet-natured and kind. Grew-up in a well-off family and went to good schools. She’s a professor of literature at BU. She and Mike have a young daughter. Their marriage has weathered hard times – possibly due to Mike’s infidelity. She’s made compromises for this relationship. Fiercely protective of her daughter.

Synopsis: a philosophical dialogue, imbued with generous amounts of comedy, between an Enlightenment philosopher and a callow young man who’s recently offended his rich patron and been cut loose. Clever and timely, the play questions the usefulness of ideals, the need for art, and role status plays in all our endeavors.
THE PHILISOPHER ("I"): An older and presumably wiser man of letters who enjoys spirited discourse on topics of art, politics, and morality. He is equally entertained, fascinated and horrified by Rameau’s Nephew and engages him in debate.
RAMEAU'S NEPHEW: ("He"): An opportunist and hangar-on. Talented but “unlucky”. Charming, amoral, lazy; a sycophant and sometime pimp. Too proud to beg forgiveness of his rich patron, and too greedy to live by his convictions (if he had any) and remain poor. A “saisir-le-jour” kind of guy.
