Character Gender/Age Range Description

Corie Bratter 20’s-30’s

A free-spirit. She is the eternal optimist. She is young, fun-loving, impulsive, and enthusiastic for whatever life brings.            Corey has a carpe-diem attitude and is the polar opposite of her newlywed husband, Paul.  She is a “doer,” not a “watcher.”

Paul Bratter 20’s – 30’s

Paul is a young attorney who is 26 going on 56. He is married to Corie. He is very conservative and stuffy.  He is dependable, level-headed, practical, and always thinks things through. He likes a plan. He is the polar opposite of Corie.

Ethel Banks 50’s

Corie’s mother. She is a widow.  She can be over-bearing and over-protective of Corie.  She has a sense of style, but probably not with the current times. She is lonely and has self-proclaimed medical conditions. She breaks out of her shell when she goes out with Corie and Paul’s eccentric neighbor.

Victor Velasco 50’s 

Victor is Paul and Corey’s attic-dwelling neighbor.  He is as eccentric as they come. He’s a free-spirited Bohemian.  He is worldly, enthusiastic, and loves life.  He is colorful, vain, flamboyant, and without shame.  He is what Paul never wants to be. Victor has a Hungarian accent.

Harry Pepper 40’s +

Telephone repair man. He is blue-collar to the core.  He is good-humored and makes observations on every-day life as he installs and fixes phones. He provides some comic relief.

Delivery Man / Woman 60’s +

A very small non-speaking role. He / She gets a lot of comic bang for his / her buck.


Special Notes for Auditioners:

Readings will be from the script.  “Delivery Man / Woman” is a non-speaking role.  The role of “Victor Velasco” has a Hungarian accent.
