Note: Some of the characters may be played by the same actor.

a new life; conflicted about leaving his aging mother and father; has never felt accepted by his father.

Alice: 50-60 years old; sister to Gene; has moved away from the family after
a dispute with her father; feels little compassion for her father

Tom Garrison: 70-80 years old; cantankerous, overbearing, self-made man; family patriarch; not “going gently into that good night”

Margaret Garrison: 70-80 years old; frail; long suffering patience for her husband; devoted and sympathetic to her son; traditional 1950’s house wife; family mediator
