Female Identifying Lead. Appears to be naïve and vulnerable but has a great maternal strength about her and really is the glue that holds the family together.
Male Identifying Lead. Hilda’s husband. The family breadwinner, works at a paper products manufacturing plant. Feels unappreciated by employer. Excited to finally become an empty-nester.
Male Identifying, Male Lead. Son, WW2 vetern who lived with parents until recently. Affected by war, making poor choices, relies on parents, lost!
Female Identifying, Female Lead. Daughter, married, comes across as spoiled “Daddy’s girl”, but her true self is much deeper.
Female Identifying, Supporting Role. Gary’s love interest, musician, hip and free-spirited…think 1960s hippy.
Male Identifying, Supporting Role. A nefarious gangster-type. Gary owes an outstanding gambling debt and Bev shows up there to collect it! Very intelligent and well spoken for a thug.
