Roles Available

  • Eric Blake (60’s) – Tormented, like a tower crumbling into softening ground, the question hovering over him —“Don’tcha think it should cost less to be alive?”— echoes without words. He recently lost hismaintenance job of 30 years. But, the real cost of his past indiscretions has yet to surface.
  • Deirdre Blake (60’s) – Upset that her daughters have left home and abandoned their Catholic religion, she remains a loving warm Mother, facing a changing economy her family isn’t ready to handle, resulting in painful situations that really shouldn’t be as funny as they are.
  • Aimee Blake (30’s) – grappling with ulcerative colitis, the breakup with her long-time girlfriend, and the news that she’s no longer in line to make partner at her Philadelphia law firm, it’s hard for her not to be sarcastic:  her entire life has entered the twilight zone.
  • Brigid Blake (20’s) – She chose a private college over a state school, and now has a sizeable debt, and two bartending jobs to keep her free to audition for her musician gigs. Tense, touchy and trying hard to make this dinner, and her life, go smoothly.
  • Fiona “Momo” Blake (80’s) – Erik’s wheelchair-bound mother suffering from dementia; she rarely stands, and needs to be helped when she does. She can still be reached thru prayer and music. And has an eerie, symbolic connection to everything and everyone around her.
  • Richard Saad (30’s) Brigid’s boyfriend, a good-natured, budding social worker who wears his sensitivity on his sleeve.
