Breakdown

A prodigal son returns from the battlefields of WWI, apparently a hero of the Great War, and charms his way into the hearts of his brother’s son, wife, and ward, as well as most of the small town they now call home. But old habits die hard. A poignant play about the value of reputation and the nature of honor and sacrifice.

Andrew Lane
30s, simple, optimistic, affectionate family man, quick with a joke, and dull as a butter knife. Insurance salesman.

Oswald Lane
Late 20s, dissipated but charming, cunning, lupine, irresistible

Andy Lane
7 years old, energetic and bright

WOMEN

Hester Lane
Late 20s, conservative, hard-working, disappointed wife to Andy, ready for a ray of sun to let her bloom

Sarah Lane
60+, practical, judgmental, and wearied by years of self-imposed suffering

Marthe Roche
Early 20s, Belgian orphan living with an American foster family, polite, delicate, and longing for anything better than this. Must have accent.
