Maggie Chun (F, Lead) – Grounded, quietly witty and sharp, sensible, somewhat resigned yet hopeful. East-Asian; early 20s.

Rob Berkowski (M, Lead) – Maggie’s fiance. Loyal, kind, a little bit corny but sweet. Not a ‘cool guy’, just a guy. Good to Maggie. Good at business. Looks very good in a suit. Early 20s.

Jules Morton (F, Lead) – Maggie’s best friend. More self-assured than Maggie, but perhaps a little more rigid and self-serious in exchange. Early 20s.

Charlie Regan (F, Lead) – Maggie’s middle school crush. Butch. Charming, lovely, effortlessly cool. Seemingly worldly and well-travelled. Early 20s.

Paul Beanie (M) – Guy with a cowboy hat and perfect timing. Rob’s best man. Cool guy. Southern accent optional. Early 20s.

Sister Berkowski (F) – Rob’s mother. The only nun in all of Windser. Mid-to-late 50s.
