*****

Kate – Female
Kate is the mightiest cleverest person around. Practical Kate will set out to solve a problem, however unsolvable it may seem.

Paul – Male
A sick young man. Formerly an eloquent young man. Falls victim to vice in search of comfort after the death of his glorious mother. It’s taking its toll.

Paul’s voice – Female
All the better parts of Paul that don’t want to be lost by him. This is a highly physical and sometimes abstract role.

Headless Sheep – Any gender
A sheep, searching for a head and being very poetically Shakespearean about it. A storytelling role.

Anne – Female
Kate’s step-sister. An unmatched beauty and unrivaled romantic. No good at solving her own problems. 

Miss Prima – Female
Seductive and Deadly older woman. Queen of the scene, pusher and all-round femme fatale. 

Baby – Male
Miss Prima’s foul-mouthed and neglected baby.

Ralph – Male
Paul’s competitive brother. Wants his share of the attention.

Kate’s mother – Male
Kate’s loving mother, Anne’s evil stepmother. A brittle, jealous and insecure woman.

Father – Male
Paul’s father, a well-off Kingly type with as many good intentions as gold coins, but out of sane ideas to help his ailing son.

Lavender – Female
A mysterious wise old crone.

Wilhema – Female
A bouncer you don’t want to mess with.
