PRINCIPALS:

Betsy, 30’s, heavy-set, brash, sarcastic, holy-roller who swears up a storm, but only when no one is around, otherwise she is very religious and very afraid that one of her sins of the past condemns her for life

Carlos, 20’s, Latino, male, handsome, friendly, feels like he let down his family because he brought shame to them, and so he is still paying his debt to society and to them

James, 20’s, Black, male, sings as much as he can (R&B), pleasant, an aspiring singer/songwriter who wants to write a top 40 hit but frustrated because he doesn’t think he’s good enough

Joe, 40’s, station agent/manager, male, sleazy, is stuck, and he doesn’t care

Kathleen, 30’s, female, dresses well, quiet, seems snobby, is afraid of people – all people, even though it only looks like she’s afraid of “colored” people

Lenny, 50’s-60’s, male, eccentric, bumbling, lovable, loves the 1960s, as evidence by the way his space is decorated and the clothes he wears is afraid of forgetting – his keys, his wallet, but mostly his wife, Mildred

Lisa, 30’s, female, filmmaker, aware, wise, nonjudgmental; narrator, audience voice; social worker; the characters are attached to her and angry with her at the same time, just like a therapist
