CHARACTERS:

ROBERT CASTLE 30-50 years old, male. Although sidelined with brain damage from a childhood accident, Robert is engaging, outgoing and makes the most of life. His naiveté from a limited world experience is tempered with a wily and charming sense of humour.
CLAIRE CASTLE 55-75 years old, female. As Robert’s mother, Claire’s life revolves around protecting her son. The challenges of being a single parent caring for a mentally-challenged son for decades have chipped away at Claire’s hopeful spirit. However, she strives to remain positive when confronted with extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
HOLLY 21-30 years old, female. Bright, caring and funny, Holly is nonetheless prone to irresponsible choices. A recent college graduate, Holly finds herself pregnant by her married lover – also her former professor – on the same day she starts her first job.
SIMON 35-50 years old, male. Holly’s lover is an uptight English professor, inclined to snobbery, selfishness and jealousy. Over the course of the play Simon discovers the courage to face the consequences of his actions and to put others’ needs before his own.
DOCTOR Age not specified, male or female. Faced with the daunting task of delivering very bad news, Claire’s doctor has to walk the fine line between being a medical practitioner and family counsellor. How do you balance a hectic schedule and the emotional needs of your patients?
