Our dead pilot this month is The Prince by Mehar Sethi (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Bojack Horseman). When Dave Whitney, a ruthless corporate fixer in Texas, is passed over for a promotion in his family’s oil business, he decides to take the whole company down. Mehar describes it as “What if Karl Rove worked for Greenpeace?”
We had a great cast for this one including Glenn Howerton as Dave Whitney, Brad Neely as Charles Whitney, Mamie Gummer as Molly, Scott MacArthur as State Senator/Roger/Redneck Store Clerk/Bobby/Gifford, Lizzie Peet as Aunt Alice, Roberta Valderrama as Margarita, Ginger Gonzaga as Zodiac Waitress/Assistant/Housewife/Local/Hostess, Gary Anthony Williams as Carl Fisher/Rival Oil Exec, Elizabeth Ho as Rhea, Mike Kosinski as Oscar, Tay Strathairn as Liam Lenox/Steakhouse Waiter, Sunkrish Bala as Ravi Daptik/Rival Oil Exec/Colleague/City Official/Actor, Mike Kosinski as Cody, and Andrew Reich with stage directions. After the table read, listen to Andrew’s interview with Mehar regarding his dead pilot!
