Play it Again, Sam

Allan Felix has this thing about Humphrey Bogart. If only he had some of Bogart's technique... Bookish and insecure with women, Allan's hero, Bogey comes to the rescue, with a fantastic bevy of beauties played out in hilarious fantasy sequences. Fixed up by friends with gorgeous women, he's so awkward that even Bogey's patience is tried. Allan mostly resembles a disheveled, friendly dog and this is what ultimately charms his best friend's wife, Linda into bed. It's a tough life, making it in the world of beautiful people but if you can't be a hero it helps to have one...

"Hilarious... a cheerful romp. Not only are Mr. Allen's jokes and their follow ups, asides and twists audaciously brilliant, but he has a great sense of character." - The New York Times

"A funny, likeable comedy that has a surprising amount of wistful appeal." - The New York Post

Main acting roles

ALLAN FELIX – A neurotic New Yorker who works as a film critic and who is going through a divorce. He has a wild fantasy and a weird sense of humor. 

NANCY – Allan’s ex-wife. The character on stage is produced by Allan’s wild imagination 

BOGEY – Humphrey Bogart, the great actor who plays the iconic role of Sam in Casablanca. He is also a fragment of the imagination of Allan; he acts as an hilarious adviser and contrast to Allan’s character 

DICK CHRISTIE – Allan’s best friend. A workaholic who always wants to be reachable (when mobile phones didn’t exist!), who tries to help Allan in this time of crisis 

LINDA CHRISTIE - Dick’s wife and Allan’s friend. Perhaps as neurotic as Allan and similarly quirky
