SUMMARY OF CHARACTERS
“Froggy” LeSueur—forties, perhaps; to quote the script, “seems well-fed, flushed with the spirit of adventure, and right at home”. He is a British Army explosives instructor, visiting the nearby Army base. He has a definite Cockney accent!
best friend, same age, roughly, as
Froggy; however, he’s completely different in personality. Again,
to quote the script: “The other, standing in his forlorn trenchcoat,
seems quietly, somehow permanently, lost.”
Betty Meeks—owns Betty Meeks’ Fishing Lodge Resort in Tilghman County, Georgia- somewhere from fifties to seventies; native of the South; good- hearted; used to hard work; is wise in some ways, not so quick in others…
Rev. David Marshall Lee—from the script: “… a friendly, open face. David, we see, is neither the stereotypically pallid, remote young divinity student, nor the hearty, backslapping evangelist. He seems rather to be a regular fella-humorous, and open, and, it would appear, a good young man to have on our side. Late twenties- thirties.
Catherine Simms—David’s fiancee’- similar in age to David- kind of a general all- around “good ol’ gal”- has her opinions, and is not afraid to tell them!
Owen Musser—friend of David’s, “smarmy” is a good word for him; from the script…” Psychologists tell us to beware of a man with two tattoos. One, he may have gotten on a drunk or a dare, but two means he went back. Owen is a two- tattoo man.” He’s a redneck, obviously; age, thirties- forties.
Ellard Simms—Catherine’s younger brother, and not the brightest porch light on the block. The script says “ There doesn’t, we must admit, seem to be much to Ellard. He is a lumpy, overgrown, backward youth…” Late teens, twenties…
Also, townsfolk of various sorts will be involved (we hope)…
