[LOGAN LEIBOWITZ]- Mid 20’s, White, male-identifying. Gay. Kenny’s neurotic boyfriend of 4 years. He wants to steer clear of drama, but also wants to be there for Kenny. He decompresses stress with weed.

[BEVERLY JENKINS]- 40’s-early 50’s, Black, female-identifying. The “fun Aunt” who’s always in a push up bra catering to what the kids want, but never what they need. A single mother and the life of the party. She can be ratchet when she wants to be.

[JOSEPHINE ‘JO’ O’SHEA]:late 40s to early 50s, female-identifying. Jo juggles more plates than Cirque de Soleil. A great mom who defines multi-tasking. She's also a little more emotional and prone to outbursts than usual because, well...you’ll see.

[THERESA ‘TERRI’ CARMICHAEL]:50s, female-identifying. Terri is definitely going through a rough patch, but she is not a depressive or phlegmatic. Think Thelma Ritter or Eve Arden, with a touch of Dorothy Parker. Fast talker.

[BECKY O’SHEA]:Early teens, female-identifying. An unusual child. Bright and verbal. Full of energy and a crazy-huge imagination. She speaks quickly, not unlike some of the characters in the movies she loves, like "His Girl Friday."

[ENSEMBLE CHARACTER]:50s, male-identifying, White. Plays the following three characters: MIKE O’SHEA: Loud, loyal, and single-task oriented. His definition of a father is: Breadwinner and disciplinarian. Lousy listener. FATHER LOVETT: An old school, Catholic priest. Egotistical, imperious, and pampered. Unused to any kind of pushback from parishioners or anyone else for that matter. BETTY HECKENBACH: There is a Betty Heckenbach in everyone's life. She's right up there with death and taxes—only less fun. Just a homely, judgmental, middle- aged woman sticking her big puss into other people's business.
