CASTING

2m, 5f

DR GREEN - family doctor in late fifties, a hearty man with reassuring and authoritative manner; wears dark suit and puts on coat, scarf, and gloves which have been left on stage before his entrance.

ELIZABETH - a rather dull woman of fifty who would worry about trifles; wears dark, nondescript afternoon dress; she is colorless in character and appearance.

NANCY - a fresh young girl of sixteen, spontaneous and joyous but mature enough to have faced a few problems of her own; she wears sport clothes in yellow or some light clor; shows deep attachment and careful consideration for her grandmother.

MRS EBERTS - a woman of seventy-eight, physically weak but knowing a vigor of personality which refuses to be stifled; wears an old-fashioned black dress with white collar and carries left arm in a black silk sling; uses a can and walks with difficulty; her part must be played with urgency and in a practical manner; any touch of sentimentality or melodrama will ruin it; she does not dwell on or accentuate the word "death," has a strong sense of humor.

RICHARD EBERTS - fifty-five, a successful, self-made busines man; brusque in manner; a little self-important; very proud of his rich, young wife.

MARY EBERT - twenty-eight; very smart and sophisticated; a little bored with Richard's family and this small town setting.

ELSIE TRAVERS - a gushing woman in middle fifties who tries pitifully to look younger; wears brightly flowered dress with gauidy ornaments, rubber galoshes unfastened, and an old sweater thrown about her shoulders; carries ragged bouqut of early spring flowers.
