40-50 yrs old / Range: F3 - F5 . Party host. Rich. Hard-working. Pompous. Bit of a sexual pig. Big brother type to Man 2. Outwardly perfect, but inwardly miserable in his marriage. Emotionally absent and tired of his equally absent wife.
25-35 yrs old / Range: G3 - A5. Not as confident as his colleague, who he possesses a younger brother type of relationship with. Cerebral and calculated with charm. Enjoys being a bachelor, but may have a desire to become married someday.
30-45 yrs old / Range: G3 - F5. The uninvited party guest. Awkwardly honest with people he doesn’t know and serves lots of unwarranted commentary. Mischievous, kooky, and forward.
40-50 yrs old / Range: D3 - G5. Party hostess. Rich. Outwardly happy but truthfully miserable with her marriage. Regal and proper, yet depressed and shallow. Yearns to become a mother but is discontent with her distant husband.
20-30 yrs old / Range: F3 - G5 A maid who eventually becomes a party guest. Winsome and sexy, she routinely acts out because of her 'loneliness.' Ditzy, with little book smarts, but knows how to turn and manipulate people as a sultry seductress.
