PRINCIPAL CHARACTERS

5 men 3 women 

Danny Dorgan – 19, a New York kid with a rough, rather crude manner which he assumes to hide his sensitivity.

Mark McPherson – early 30’s, a shrewd young man, guarded in his manner, but with a dry sense of humour. He is not handsome , but attractive in a lean vigorous masculine way

Waldo Lydecker – late 40’s, is inclined to indulge his emotions, makes theatrical gestures at every opportunity, shows great gusto for everything he enjoys and greater scorn for his meticulous taste rejects

Bessie Clary – 40, New York Irish, independent, plain spoken and respectable. She is Laura’s maid.


 

Shelby Carpenter 30-40, is well bred, his manners easy and gracious, his features almost too symmetrical. He seems sincere, but somewhat bewildered. Speaks with a slight, southern accent.

The Girl – 30’s, Laura Hunt – The ultimate femme fatale. Beautiful, elegant, highly ambitious, utterly mysterious. No man could resist her charms. 

Mrs Dorgan – 45’s, a faded woman with a touch of eccentricity in her dress. She wears an air of long-enduring martyrdom. Under her sweet, refined well-controlled tones is a suggestion of suppressed hysteria.
Olsen – any age, a classic NYPD cop: tough and trustworthy
