All characters need a standard mid-western accent without countrified
PERCY TALBOTT - Female - early 20's, pretty, if a bit rough-edged, her face
declares the strength of her youth and sadness beyond her years. Her accent
has a southern Appalachian cadence. Very strong folk/country belt to "D",
some head voice required.
HANNAH FERGUSON - Female - about 50/60/70's. A tough-skinned and flinty old
bird with a short, no-nonsense manner bordering on the bitter. Mezzo/alto
SHELBY THORPE - Female - mid 30's A plain, soft faced creature with a shy,
almost ethereal manner. Shimmering folk soprano with a strong high belt to
CALEB THORPE - Male - early 40's. Out of work foreman of the stone quarry.
Frustrated working man clinging to the past. Solid folk/rock voice with and
edge - top "G"
SHERIFF JOE SUTTER - Male - mid-late 20's A young small-town policeman with
an appealing intensity and restless nature. Strong fold tenor to a "G"
(touches an 'A")
EFFY KRAYNECK - Female - 50's. Postmisttress and busybody, a woman with
narrow eyes and a sour tongue. Solid singer in mezzo/alto chest range -
carries close harmony.
THE VISITOR - Mid 40's - a mysterious figure who never speaks. An actor with
a very strong sense of his body.
