CHARACTERS: Character/Age Range/Description

  • Mike Talman, 30-50. Professional conman. He is taller than Susy and has spent time in jail.  He is likeable and charismatic but has a dark side. He has to carry a major portion of the play.

  • Harry Roat, Jr., 30-50. Very creepy.  Only interested in himself and his lust for drugs and money. He plays two other characters in the con. Is capable of murder. We should be afraid of him, but not surprised by him.
