BREAKDOWN

CHARLEY WILSON (early 30’s.) - Married to LILY. Decent and stable; the very picture of an ordinary specimen of a city clerk. His growing frustration with the tedium of his work and life unearths a new restlessness and fever to get out and see the world before it’s too late. Ultimately, unleashing a passionate, desperate desire for self-determination and fulfillment. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

LILY WILSON (mid/late 20’s) - Married to CHARLEY. Attractive, practical and accommodating, but clearly possessing enough grit and guile to keep her life and marriage secure, even in the face of her husband’s growing discontentment. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

MAGGIE MASSEY (late 20’s - early 30’s) - Sister to LILY. Smart, spirited and seeking an escape from her dreary life as a shopgirl. She boldly dreams of a life filled with freedom and choice, even while realizing the limitations of her gender and circumstance. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

FREDDY TENNANT - (late 20’s - early 30’s) The WILSON’S lodger and a fellow clerk at Molesey’s. A sturdy young fellow, good-natured and broad-shouldered. Perhaps a little shy in his manner with women, but braver and bolder than he may realize. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

PERCY MASSEY - (early 20’s) Brother to LILY and MAGGIE. Nice-looking , somewhat weak youth, with little to no imagination. Ready to settle down, too soon. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity
ALFRED MASSEY (late 50’s - early 60’s) - Blustery and affable father to LILY, MAGGIE and PERCY, who freely shares his conventional ideas about family and home with both bourgeois authority and an awkward, paternal wink. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

WALTER FOSTER (40) - Stolid widower and upwardly-mobil shipping clerk, engaged to MAGGIE. Devoted and dependable, though carrying an air of sadness or perhaps resignation about him. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

MORTON LESLIE (30’s - 40’s) Boorish yet congenial next-door neighbor of the WILSON’S. He enjoys being the center of attention while having a laugh, usually at someone else’s expense. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

SYBIL FROST (early 20’s) - Very young and very pretty, friend of the family. Much given to laughing at everything. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity

MR. FENWICK (40’s - 50’s) - CHARLEY’S direct superior at work. Unassuming and slight, with a quiet, rather crushed manner. London lower-middle-class accent. Any ethnicity
