Dinah Collins
An openly bold and confident young woman whose father walked out on her and her mother when she was six.

Whilst she has no need for her father (she has managed this long without him), she is interested in seeing how he has turned out, and meeting her half-sister from his later relationship.

Improvisation ability appreciated, but not necessary.

William Collins
Dinah's estranged father, having walked out on her and her mother when she was six, looking to make amends to her and trying to re-forge a relationship with her years down the road at the nudge of his fiancee.

Improv ability appreciated, but not necessary.

Abigail Leigh Collins

Dinah's half-sister from one of their father's other relationships after he left her and her mother.

Abigail is kind, caring, and very much a "Daddy's girl", who is looking to study and work in music in the future. Is a lesbian, not that she would openly admit it to herself, or her family.

Abigail is a little underdeveloped, but we are happy to work with the actress to develop her out further.
Improv and musical ability appreciated, but not necessary.

Olivia Harper
William's fiancee. Kind and caring to all those she holds close, and heavily pregnant with her first (and William's third) child.
Like Abigail, Olivia is a little underdeveloped, but we are happy to work with the actress to develop her out further.
Improv ability appreciated, but not necessary.
