Female,African American, late 40s mid 50s. Born and raised in NYC. She is one of those NY women whose unique personal style makes every look her own, physically confident; sensual without being overtly sexy; and comfortable in her own 50 year old skin. She loves to eat, drink, dance, sing and laugh. Her dreams of being an actress did not come true, but she remains a "performer," giving a dramatic flair to even the most ordinary discussion. Her belief in the power of love and truth is unshakeable.
Female, African American, early to late 30s. Born and raised in Washington, D.C. and politics is in her blood. She loves it. Her clothes are intended to make her fit in anywhere without drawing attention to herself. She is very bright, slightly cynical and prefers her single life to what she sees as the inevitable compromise that comes with romantic entanglements. She is cool, confident and fearless.
Female, African American, early to late 20s. Born and raised in Albany, Georgia on a farm. She followed a more worldly aunt to Atlanta and quickly learned the ways of the city, but her relationship with JP Madison put her on a fast track for which she was unprepared. He, being twice her age and already a public figure, took over her clothes selection and her "education." She is insecure about living up to JP's expectations and tortured by the fact that she's caught up in such a charade. She has little physical or emotional confidence at the start of the play, trying desperately to do the right thing. She gradually comes to embrace the possibilities that are before her and her new found confidence is evident. She's smart, but unsophisticated.
Male, African American, early to mid 50s. Born and raised in Columbus, Ga. He is a great lawyer who exudes confidence and power. He found his calling at Howard University after serving in World War II and he's seen some of the world, but not as much as he would have you believe. His years with Evie polished his personal style and he is always well dressed. Beneath his "take charge" exterior, he is capable of great love and romantic gestures, as Evie testifies, but he does not share this side of himself with many people. He'd rather give orders than open his heart.
Male, African American, early to late 30s. Born and raised in Atlanta. He is well educated, well dressed, ambitious, smart and confident, but he is also madly in love with Ann so just beneath his perfectly controlled exterior beats the heart of a true romantic; vulnerable, hopeful and passionate.
