PETER - self-assured, funny, confident, very likeable; a caretaker.
MAUREEN - high-strung, narcissistic, often hysterical; has a ready self-pity.
ELLA - good-natured, passionate, idealistic, with just enough self-deception at her disposal.
IAN - Irish; has lived in the states for over ten years; bitter, funny, brilliant; he is angry at himself for all his bad decisions. Angry at the universe, too. Ready to burn the store to get what he wants. Is also wounded and vulnerable; it’s important that his woundedness be seen.
