CASTING NOTES

A play for one woman and twenty-five imaginary kindergarten students.

MISS PHALLON - 38 or maybe 45; a kindergarten teacher for the last 10 years; loves other people's children with a zest bordering sometimes on desperation; the important thing is she lives at home with an aging father; her humor almost saves her; she'd give anything to be in love
