Synopsis:

Years ago, an infamous murder in Los Angeles brought two far-away countries close to war. Today, they’re meeting for a peace summit. But when a young queen goes missing, it is once again on one man to unravel the truth before the drums of war start beating, and standing in the way is a former pirate turned underworld kingpin. Private detective Jim Hawkins must juggle witches, queens, bureaucrats, and estranged family to solve the mystery before another queen dies on his watch. Playwright Dan Gibbins and director Chelsea Millard reunite for Blood of the Red Queen: Citizen Smee.

  • Argent Hawkins (female, age 35-45): Sister of Jim Hawkins, diplomat. Tough, loyal woman who has had fought hard for her position but keeps bumping against the glass ceiling. (fight experience an asset)
  • Glinda the Good Witch (female, age 30-50): Regent of Oz. Strong, regal, and reserved, yet soft. Determined to protect her homeland against all enemies.
  • White Queen (female, age 30-50): Newly crowned ruler of Wonderland. Hard, sharp, will not allow her countrymen to be blamed for Oz’s woes nor dismissed as simply “mad.”

  • Mad Hatter (male, no age range): Visiting eccentric, speaks in riddles. Knows nothing and everything.
  • Starkey (male, age 20-45): Smee’s primary henchman. The muscle, not the smartest man but has moments where he’s clever.  (fight experience an asset)
