CLEMENTINE - an aggresive but good-natured African-American woman of about 40.
LINDA - a glamorous actress, a bit over 30. Sane, sensible, and witty.
GAYLORD - a fine-looking, intelligent, sensitive man of 35-40.
PHILO - between 45 and 50, quiet, keen-faced, pretty well possessed; he has made his major decisions in life and no longer permits himself to be agitated much about anything.
ROBERT - a tall, blond, impeccable butler.
AMANDA - quiet, slim and dark; she has what is known as a classic profile, of which she is aware and which she displays unobtrusively without ever a flourish. Her voice is gentle, low, musical.
MAKEPEACE LOVELL (PYM) - an attractive, wryly humorous young Englishman, wearing a dinner-jacket. He has a distinguished ancestry, a small income and does odd journalism. Pym hasn't quite found himself-- he hovers pleasantly on the brink of this discover, feeling somehow it'll be more fun not ever quite to find out.
