9 roles

MARGERYFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

"Tender Hooks" LaPriel's older sister, also in her mid-sixties. Rather heavy and slow, a master of folk wisdom which she dispenses freely.

LETHAFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

"Tender Hooks" (Pronounced LEEtha) A tall, lanky eleven-year-old girl. Bright in her own way energetic, disarming. She has only three fingers on her right hand, easily accomplished by taping the ring finger over the little finger. This role may be played by an adult.

MRS. HICKSFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

"Tender Hooks" A neighbor. The mother of five children, including Letha. In her thirties but looks older than her years. Direct and slow of speech, she seems both threatening and seductive.

SISTER GARCIA (MARY)Female20-24 y.o.All ethnicities

"THE FIELD IS RIPE" Has been on her mission for three months and has found abnormal success. People flock to her because she is effortlessly cool and doesn’t ever try too hard. Garcia is impulsive and doesn’t spend any time thinking about the significance of an action before it happens. Things come easily, they go easily, and she doesn’t let it sit heavy. She says shocking things very matter of fact. By the end of the play, she reveals she is pregnant.

SISTER ROBERTS (KENZIE)Female20-24 y.o.All ethnicities

"THE FIELD IS RIPE" Is as fresh as a daisy. She cares about doing what she is supposed to do and is struggling to get a baptism. She has been on her mission for over a year and is obsessive and desperate about rules, writing things down, and the letter of the law. Roberts is completely and utterly fascinated with sister Garcia and hangs on her every word. Maybe she is in love with her, but she doesn’t let herself in on it. Everything she says and does is guided by this.

BARIMale40-69 y.o.All ethnicities

"BE HERE NOW" A depressed, nihilistic misanthrope who undergoes a radical transformation.

PATTY COOPERFemale40-69 y.o.All ethnicities

"BE HERE NOW" Loud and controlling and good hearted. Has never left her hometown of East Cooperville.

LUANNE COOPERFemale18-22 y.o.All ethnicities

"BE HERE NOW" Patty’s niece. Very simple and sweet. Hungry for joy and meaning.

MIKE COOPERMale40-69 y.o.All ethnicities

"BE HERE NOW" Patty’s cousin. Mike makes beautiful art out of garbage – that’s who he is. He has a crow.
