CASTING ATTRIBUTES

All Female, Parts for Senior Actors

DOTTIE - Anywhere between forty-five and sixty-five years old. The years have made her distrustful, paranoid, and even curel at times. She walks slowly and carefully as if suspicious of, or angry at, everything she sees. The wild, painful energies that one senses from her have been religiously focused on the game of Bingo.
JEANIE - Close in age to her sister, but the years have been far more gracious to her than to Dottie. Her manner is both in the way she talks and walks is far more pleasant and calm. Bingo is important to her but her obsession with the game is not so great as her sister's. Her pleasant, sweet, peace-making manner is at its peak when things are at their worst. But, alas, Jeanie dos have her breaking point and Dottie has become an expert at bringing this about.
CHORUS - A country guitarist
