MRS. MANNINGHAM - about 34. She has been good-looking, almost a beauty - but now she has a haggard, wan, frightened air, with rings under her eyes, which tell of sleepless nights and worse.
ELIZABETH - a stout, amiable, subservient woman of 50.
NANCY - a self-conscious, pretty, cheeky girl of 19.
ROUGH - middle-aged - greying, short, wiry, active, brusque, friendly, overbearing. He has a low, warm chuckle and completely dominates the scene from the beginning.
