CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS BELOW:
Note: We intend to double up roles Narrator and Farrah are likely (but not guaranteed) to be played by the actors playing Gabbi/Tina. Similarly there’s a number of scenes with various types of Monsters with brief non-speaking stage combat appearances currently Gabbi/Tina/Miles/Steve are likely to cover these as well.
Agnes Evans – is the protagonist of our story. She’s strong, determined, but sceptical. She lost her family some years ago, but is only finally packing up their stuff because she’s moving in with her boyfriend. She never knew her sister Tilly very well, but she sets out on a new path to get to know her, through Dungeons & Dragons. She works at her old high school.
Tilly Evans/Tillius the Paladin – is Agnes’ younger sister, now deceased. The two never had much in common. Tilly was into experiments, adventure and roleplaying games while her sister was into boys and pop music. She’s what society would call a “tomboy” and the play calls a “girl-nerd”. She was famous around town for her Dungeons & Dragons skills, and even though life wasn’t always easy for her being different, she stayed tough, loving and kind.
Lilith Morningstar – Demon Queen and high school student. The strongest adventurer, loyal friend of Tilly’s and gruff with others, and tough as nails in the biggest battle- until you mention telling her dad something she doesn’t want him to know! She’s hiding a couple of secrets.
Orcus, Demon – Orcus is a bit of a slacker and has kind of had it with the whole big bad demon thing. After a while having adventurers stomp into your place demanding this and that just wore thing. He just wants to sit back and enjoy some quality t.v.
Kalliope Darkwalker, Dark Elf – Graceful, agile and thoughtful. She is the quieter adventurer, knowledgeable and stoic. Sister of Orcus in real life, with a few secrets of her own.
Chuck – is our Dungeon Master (and no, that’s not kinky). He is a self-proclaimed massive nerd and wears it as a badge of honour, throwing himself into the game with theatricality and aplomb. He is very awkward outside of D&D, especially with the ladies, trying to cover up his insecurities with arrogance, but we see his kind nature as he helps Agnes play the game.
Vera – is Agnes best friend and colleague, a no-nonsense school guidance counsellor. Fiercely loyal, moral, calls you out on stupid behaviour and not willing to let you drop out of your classes.
Steve/The Great Mage Steve – is a high school guy who can’t seem to catch a break. Be it getting caught in disastrous battles or disastrous conversations.
Tina/Evil Tina – is a cheerleader by day, succubus by night, and really mean by both. She and her bff Gabbi are a couple of popular kid high-school bullies.
Gabbi/Evil Gabbi – is a cheerleader by day, succubus by night, and really mean by both. She and her bff Tina are a couple of popular kid high-school bullies.
The Narrator – male or female, steers us through the story with gravitas, good humour and (sometimes lame) jokes.
Farrah – is a fairy, but touch her and she’ll rip your hand off. She is a certified badass, you can keep your dainty fluttering and fairy dust to yourself.
