About

THE STORY:

ONE NIGHT AT THE PEACOCK Hotel & Casino is a hilarious, modern day (Martin and Lewis style) romp about two buddies on a final post-college graduation blow-out at the luxurious Peacock Hotel & Casino in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.  Fresh on the heels of commencement, Danny has been dumped by the only girl he has ever "known".  While Zeke has managed the nearly impossible task of completing college with his virginity regretfully still very much intact.  Their brief stay in Sin City will surely provide ample opportunity for Danny to experience another girl for the first time and Zeke to leave his chaste state in the state of Nevada!  But here's the rub...Our duo is high on testosterone but low on funds, not exactly the stuff high rollers are made of.  So to secure the complimentary room they must pose as a married gay couple shopping for a timeshare.  They have to maintain this ruse not only for the hotel staffers but others as well while going about their true mission of calling upon the services of the ladies of night.  It's a set of cross purposes that is sure to cause one big hangover!

THE PLAN:

Your generous donations will provide all that is needed to produce this original piece.  They will provide the required monies for Actors Equity stipends for our performers.  They will also allow us to "crew up," providing  salaries for a skilled, experienced stage manager and publicist as well as other vitally important crew members. Your funds will allow us to secure the needed space -- space for auditions, rehearsals (large enough to lay out the true deminsions of the set) and performances.  An adequate audition space will give us an opportunity to meet, audition and cast the best actors to portray Danny and Zeke as well as the supporting players.  This will insure that our cast is a well oiled machine and ready for opening night.

However, the lion's share of your kindnes will go towards set construction and the four week theater rental of The Stage 52 Playhouse in Los Angeles.  Danny and Zeke's Peacock hotel room, which is where all the "action" (pun intended) takes place, will be brought to life under the guidance of our crack set designer, the supremely talented Thomas Meleck.

Mr. Meleck designed the set for our last production, SECTION 8, and was nominated for an NAACP Theater Award for his efforts.

THE APPRECIATION:

The subject matter of this play is certainly not for children.  However, there is no sex, nudity and the language is not much more coarse than something one might hear at 10:00pm on network television.  I dare say, that it even has an air of innocence.  In short, if the legitimate theater had a ratings system it would fall somewhere near a PG-13.  Finally, I understand that not everyone who's enjoyed this synopsis will be able or inclined to make a monetary contribution.  That is fine and we appreciate and thank you for your interest.   But you may be able to contribute in another way, that is, by spreading the word about ONE NIGHT AT THE PEACOCK Hotel & Casino to anyone you know who may want to support this original work by award winning artists.  Thank you in advance for any and all consideration given to the production of the world premiere of ONE NIGHT AT THE PEACOCK Hotel & Casino.   

Very truly yours,

TONY WINTERS

Playwrite, Producer & Director
