ABOUT THE SHOW
Based on true events, this play tells the story of Dr. Frances Kelsey’s battle with a powerful drug company to prevent thalidomide from being approved for release in the United States. Concerned about the drug’s potential effect on pregnant women, she resists the drug company’s attacks to force her to back down. [MISS] is about the challenges women face in science and the ability of one uncompromising woman to change history and save lives.

SEEKING THE FOLLOWING ROLES

DR. FRANCES OLDHAM KELSEY: FDA Investigator, Female, mid 40s, prim, forthright, studious. Definitely one of the sharpest knives in the drawer.

DR. RAYMOND STEHLE: McGill Professor, Male, 50s-60s (doubles as DR. NULSEN), Obi Wan, Mister Miyagi, Uncle Hiro.

JOHN YODER: Husband of Betty, Male, 30s, loving, attentive, wants kids.

BETTY YODER: Merrell Pharmaceutical Representative, Female, late 20s, career woman with her foot in the door.

DR. JOSEPH MURRAY: Merrell Contact Man, Male, 40s, corporate VP level, cool, calculating.

DR. RAYMOND POGGE: Merrell Medical Director, Male, 50s, corporate director level, passionate, ambitious, sales forward.

GERTRUDE HELFER: FDA Staff, Female, mid 30s, Korean War widow, FDA tribal knowledge base, not too jaded to be impressionable.

MARY BECK: Merrell Pharmaceutical Representative, Female, late 20s to mid 30s, career woman, sympathetic to Betty.

DR. RAY NULSEN: Physician, Male, 50s-60s (doubles as DR. STEHLE), a random middle aged MD on the backside of his career that spends more time on the golf course than the exam room and never met a kickback he didn't like.
