Note: CRIMES OF THE HEART takes place in Hazlehurst , Mississippi. Appropriate southern accents are required.


Lenny Magrath:

(30s) – Eldest of the McGrath girls. Warm-hearted, nervous and timid. A wallflower who rarely stands up for herself. Slightly round, not the looker her sisters are but funny, sweet, hugely appealing. Frightened of being an old maid.

Chick Boyle:

(29) – The girls’ cousin. A young matron, judgmental, obsessed with niceties and appearances. Without tact, a gossip, a very bad flirt and very funny. Jealous of Meg. Sympathetic when the girls are in trouble, poison when they’re not.

Doc Porter:

(30) – Long, lean and attractive. Limps slightly and may feel a little older than his actual age. The strong silent type, Doc is quietly seductive. Married with a son. Still carries a torch for Meg.

Meg Magrath:

(27) The middle sister. A beautiful woman who’s left girlhood behind. Left Hazlehurst to pursue a career in LA and has gone nowhere fast. Sad, smart and sexual, she’s been around the block a few times. Narcissistic but very, very attractive. Good at getting what she wants in small ways – never in the ways that matter. Damaged.

Babe Magrath Botrelle:

(24) The youngest of the girls. Sweet, soft and sexy. Married to a state senator with a penchant for knocking her around. Lonely and emotional. Wide-eyed, childish, sensual - with an inner ability to defend herself and the ones she loves – she’ll land on her feet.

Barnette Lloyd:

(26) A lawyer with a personal vendetta against Babe’s husband, Zackery F. Botrelle. Intelligent, precise, intense, a bit eccentric. Ultra focused bordering on fanatical. A charming dog with a bone. Falls for Babe.
