CASTING NOTES

Both SAMUEL and IRMA have the ageless quality of the very old, so the age of the actors is unimportant. If younger performers play the parts, it is suggested they avoid obvious makeup and suggest age by subtle whitening of eyebrows and hair and by moving with the caution of the elderly. The perfommers, whether youthful or mature, should avoid caricature, juxtaposing the characters' somewhat comic aspects with gentle inner dignity.
