The Characters

A woman, Jean - meek, insular, and small, an easily fascinated woman who creates stories out of thin air. Playing age 20-40.

A dead man, Gordon - a dead man who left behind many loose ends, self-assured and confident. One very large monologue. Playing age 20-40.

Gordon’s mother, Mrs. Gottlieb - fiercely dominant, blunt, strong-willed and opinionated with a tender side. Playing age 55-65.

Gordon’s widow, Hermia - a small part. Fiery and strong, with resentment over a loveless marriage that has left her prone to bitter resentment and jealousy. Playing age 20-40.

Gordon’s brother, Dwight - not his mother’s favourite son. Soft, romantic, appreciative of beauty, poetry, and life. Playing age 20-40.

The other woman/the stranger - one scene each. Sultry, dangerous and mysterious. Small amount of line. Possible fight scene. The stranger has a foreign accent, possibly Eastern European. Playing age 20-40.
