Corie’s Mother (Mrs. Banks) Late 40s, early 50s. Tries not to be a bother - but she is. Has recently let herself go a bit. Has a flair for the dramatic, but is lonely underneath it all. Her daughter’s energy often overwhelms her.

Telephone Man 30’s Charming man with good comic timing. A bit out of shape, perhaps.

Performance Dates: February 28-March 17, 2019

Roles:

Suzy Hendrix – 25 to 35. Suzy is married to Sam. Recently blinded in a car accident, Suzy is still adjusting to her blindness. She is very likeable with a good sense of humor, and a strong need for independence, but she relies heavily on Sam. She is a perfectionist. She is small in stature, and physically vulnerable. She does not get along well with Gloria.

Harry Roat, Jr. – 30’s to 50’s. Roat is a very creepy sociopathic con man who we know is capable of murder. He is a 'loose cannon' that reacts suddenly, violently and without conscience. He is the ringleader of this con. He will need several accents during the course of the play.

Sgt. Carlino – 30’s to 50’s. Carlino is Mike's partner, but he’s not as likeable as Mike. He is older, and physically out of shape. He is a follower, not a leader. You get the feeling he does not like what he does, but doesn't know how to do anything else. Roat has given him this name for the purposes of this con. Bronx accent preferred.

Mike Talman – mid 20’s to 40’s. Mike is a professional con man. He has spent time in jail and has pulled many cons with Carlino. Talman is a good liar. He should be very likeable and charismatic, but with a dark side. Through a crisis of conscience, he isn’t sure he can follow through with the plan. Bronx accent preferred.

Sam Hendrix – 28 to 40. Sam is married to Suzy. He is a professional photographer and a former Marine. He is very organized. He is kindly, trustworthy and almost fatherly toward Suzy. He also interacts very well with Gloria.

Gloria – 10 to 13. Gloria is the upstairs neighbor to Suzy and Sam. Sam has been paying her to help Suzy with chores and shopping. She doesn’t have much experience around adults other than Sam and Suzy. She is very independent and doesn’t like to be told what to do. She acts out when upset.

Police Officer #1 & #2 – 20’s to 40’s, one man, one woman. These officers are self‐assured and trustworthy characters who come in only at the end of the play. Note: Actors cast for this role will also be part of our stage crew.
