Years after an angry breakup, Victor and Walter Franz are reunited by the death of their father. As they sort through his possessions in an old brownstone attic, the memories evoked by his belongings stir up old hostilities.
VICTOR – Actor who can read 50 yrs. Policeman on the verge of retirement. Blue collar, smart, and perceptive. Down to earth, with a conscience and the insecurity of someone who doesn’t know whether he made the right decisions.
WALTER – Actor who can read 50-55. Victor’s brother. A powerful man of the world. A doctor who has experienced professional success, great wealth, the dissolution of his marriage, and a nervous breakdown. Desperate to reconnect wit hhis brother, he nevertheless believes that a man must take care of himself first.
ESTHER –45. Very attractive, highly emotional, loyal to her husband but fed up with a life without money. She views Victor’s choices regarding the sale of the furniture as a key test of their marriage. She believes in him but is afraid he will never have the ambition to change their status.
GREGORY SOLOMON – 89. Surprisingly energetic for his age. Has all his wits about him and a keen sense of humor. He decides, reluctantly, to come out of retirement to take on the job of selling furniture. At times forceful, at other times fragile. He must read as a ‘father figure’ in relation to Victor and Walter.
