KITTEN LEGERE - 36; college student; married to new money. Dressed all in bonny blue, she wears a Laura Ashley ensemble a bit tight in the waist and bust, and a hat. She carries a ribboned basket of supplies and food. She is gorgeous like a china doll from Paris but sometimes stutters, especially when talking about her son.
JAMES BEAUREGARD (BEAU) ELLIS - 38; professor of English Literature; heir to his family's plantation and sugar business; dressed from toe to crown in Ivy League blue and gray: an oxford cloth shirt, the university club tie, Bally loafers. Right now, he is broke. He carries worn Gucci luggage, a London Fog raincoat, an umbrella, and a brief case.
BUNKY LEGERE - 15; Kitten's son; poured into jean cut offs, tee-shirt, leather jacket, and boots. Over one shoulder, he carries a nap sack with books, shoes, a bandana, patches, and pins hanging from it, and a fencing sword. He wears his hair over his face like a mask.
HETTY WILLIAMS - 20s-50s; the porter; limps; a strong woman. Her leg starts acting up whenever anybody criticizes her. From rural Louisiana, she wears a porter's uniform with a name tag and a rhinestone necklace, earrings. Perhaps a nose ring.
