ROLES: HEATHER – 30s-40s: a married woman, charismatic and poised, used to relying on a friendly smile to smooth things over
PAMELA – 30s-40s: a married woman, definitely type A, used to getting her way in most things, and probably pretty lonely
ALICIA – 20s-40s: a woman, chatty with a “new age” vibe, she vacillates between flighty and ominous, steeped in the occult
OLIVE – 30s-50s: a woman, a downstairs neighbor, someone who thinks of herself as good and correct, myopic, also a busybody
NICK – 30s-40s: a man, a solid communicator, he’s doing an okay job of holding it together in hard times; the strong one
BRIAN – 30s-40s: Nick’s boyfriend, handsome and flippant, definitely an urbanite, still learning how to really commit during hard times
“SAM” – 20s-40s: Alicia’s boyfriend; that’s not his real name, it’s what she calls him. He’s not an angry guy, just very matter of fact and easily frustrated. And usually bloody.
