Guests at a house party, many of them unhappy in their lives, are warned against going into the woods, for it is Midsummer Eve. They venture in anyway and find dreams and desires answered. When they return, even though they have no memory of the wood, they are forever changed. Dear Brutus explores what might happen if ordinary men and women, mired in unhappiness, were given the magical opportunity to remake their lives. This charming play addresses the human proclivity to blame others or fate for their failures and unhappiness, and provides the audience with penetrating insights into human nature.

Role # 1 - Lob Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(He looks old and decrepit) (An ancient dialect- perhaps older than language) a man so old that no one can remember his ever being any younger. Lob has invited eight people to his home for the midsummer night experience in his magic woods. He is a fairylike character, small and seemingly superhuman in both his understanding of human nature and his communication with nature, as manifested in his magnificent garden. His very name, from English folklore, ties him to Shakespeare's sprightly fairy Puck, or Robin Goodfellow, whom his fellow fairy in A Midsummer Night's Dream calls "a lob of spirits."

Role # 2 - Matey Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(Lower class British dialect) Lob's butler, although not an invited guest, fits into the group—he is in need of a second chance. The five women guests have discovered Matey stealing rings from the guests and are about to report him to the police. Matey argues that he is a thief by circumstance, not character, led to thievery by fate. "I am not bad naturally," he says."It was just going into domestic service that did for me."

Role # 3 - Margaret Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(Must look 12-15) (British dialect) A fun-loving tomboy of a girl with a fun-loving magical outlook on the world. Margaret completely idolizes her father and has the kind of relationship in which most families can only dream. Must be able to play young and childlike at times but with a special grown up quality.

Role # 4 - Alice Dearth Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(British dialect) She is a bright, beautiful, talented woman who is dissatisfied with her life and angry at her husband, from whom she is estranged. She wishes she had married another man, Fred, so that she might have had a better life. Barrie says in his notes, "Murky beasts lie in ambush in the labyrinths of her mind." She tells Will (her husband), "If I hadn't married you, what a different woman I should be.

Role # 5 - Will Dearth Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(British dialect) is a painter, or was when he had confidence in himself. Overwhelmed by the "adorable wildness" of Alice as a young woman, Will married her and set out to be a great artist. But when he discovered that Alice "had no opinion" of him, he began to have no opinion of himself. If someone he loved as much as he loved Alice found that she did not care for him, he could not care for himself. He suggests that if they had children, she might have continued to care for him, but she tells him that he merely would have been a bad father, just as he is a bad painter and a bad husband. Will's major interests in life, now that more significant ones have been denied him, are in drinking port and smoking cigars. He is still a good craftsman, but the music is gone.

Role # 6 - Mabel Purdie Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Is described by Barrie as a passive, pleading woman. If Alice Dearth would use force to get what she wants, Mabel would purr on a man's shoulder until he gave in. Mabel is aware of her husband's philandering, but for the most part, she chooses to suffer in silence. She is the loyal wife, who hopes that her husband will finally grow tired of his affair with Joanna Trout and return his love to his wife.

Role # 7 - John Purdie Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(British dialect) is a romantic, who sees Joanna Trout as "spotless as the driven snow," while Mabel has "a horrid way of seeming to put people in the wrong." The people she seems to put in the wrong are Joanna and her husband, who are, of course, in the wrong. But neither Joanna nor John can see past their infatuation with each other. John insists that if he and Joanna had met earlier, then he would be happy. He laments that he must suffer forever because he took the wrong turn. He and Joanna enter the woods wishing for what might have been.

Role # 8 - Joanna Trout Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(British dialect) is as star-struck as John. She sees John as a perfect man trapped by fate to be bound to the "horrid" woman, Mabel. All of the evidence presented dramatically to the audience is that Joanna, while a lively woman, is shallow and blind to reality. John is clearly a simple-witted person, who utters inanities about his own assumed nobility, about Joanna, and about Mabel. But Joanna is not discriminating and takes John's romantic shallowness for nobility.

Role # 9 - Lady Caroline Laney Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
(British dialect with R’s as W’s) is another frail woman whose life shows her devotion to the insignificant trappings of life. She has been to an "enormously select school," where young women are taught to pronounce r's as w's. (Think of Madeline Kahn in Blazing Saddles with an English accent) Her character demonstrates that, as Barrie points out in his notes, "nothing else seems to be taught." She is very proper but bored with life. When given a second chance, she takes it without urging. Her last words before entering the magical woods are, "One would like to know."

Role # 10 - Mrs. Coade Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Also called Coady, (British dialect) Besides Lob, the only character not to enter the woods is Mrs. Coade, called Coady by all the other characters. She and her husband, also called Coady because the couple is so well adjusted to each other that one can answer for the other, are content with life and with each other. Their relationship serves as a standard by which all the other characters are compared—except, of course, Lob, who is a bit more than a human character. Lob, however, despite urging all the other characters to enter the woods, tells Mrs. Coade not to go.

Role # 11 - Mr. Coade Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Also called Coady, (British dialect) does enter the magical woods, perhaps more for the mystery than for any desire for a second chance. While he starts out as a slightly reserved older gentleman, this character must take on the persona of a spry whimsical man who is light on his feet after entering the forest.
