4 females, ages early 20s to mid 30s
2 males, ages mid 20s to mid 30s
Lenny McGrath, age 30. The oldest of the three McGrath sisters, Lenny considers herself a spinster. She lacks confidence and feels like life has passed her by. She is the caregiver to her gravely ill grandfather and this burden has taken its toll on her. She is fiercely protective of her sisters, and she is also jealous of them.
Meg McGrath, age 27. Meg is the middle of the three McGrath sisters. She has spent a good bit of her life proving her strength after a traumatic childhood. She has just returned to Mississippi after a failed singing career in California. Meg has a way of always getting what she wants, including her share of men.
Babe Botrelle, age 24. The youngest of the McGrath sisters. Babe is married to a powerful yet abusive Mississippi State Senator. This relationship has caused her to be lonely and eventually seek companionship elsewhere. She is eccentric, quirky and more than a little bit crazy.
Chick Boyle, age 29. She is the first cousin and neighbor of the McGrath sisters. She is nosy, bossy and irritating. There is no love lost between Chick and her cousins.
Barnette Lloyd, mid 20s. He is an ambitious and talented attorney who has a strong attraction to Babe.
Doc Porter, age 30. Doc is a soft-spoken yet manly Southern gentleman. He is the ex-boyfriend of Meg and clearly still has feelings for her.
The play is set in Mississippi, therefore, a Southern accent is required.
