Norman Thayer: Male (70-80’s)
A retired professor, who describes himself as “older than dirt.” He uses his sharp, disarming wit to mask his fears and frustrations arising out of his failing health and fading memory; loving and vulnerable with Ethel.
Ethel Thayer: Female (70-80’s)
A spirited, intelligent, life-loving, nurturing soul and soulmate to Norman, unfazed by his barbs, saddened to watch him decline but determined that to enjoy to the fullest the time they have left together.
Chelsea Thayer: Female (40’s)
A bright, capable, divorced woman, still hurting from her regret of not having lived up to Norman’s expectations. She is newly engaged to Bill and a bit trepidatious about step mothering Billy Ray.
Bill Ray: Male (40’s-early 50’s)
Chelsea’s new fiancé. A successful Los Angeles dentist who is initially unnerved by Norman, but ultimately gains his respect by standing his ground.
Billy Jr: Boy (13 years old – or looks it)
Bill’s smart-mouthed son who, underneath a cool, tough front is really in need and responds enthusiastically to the love and attention he receives from Ethel and Norman.
Charlie Martin: Male (40’s)
The local mailman and childhood friend of Chelsea who has always had a crush on her. His laugh is contagious albeit used a little too often. Ability to do a Maine accent is a plus.
