BREAKDOWN
[AMANDA WINGFIELD]
Female, any ethnicity, 50s – 60s. A powerful force of nature who dominates her world. Charming and charismatic, with an ambition to improve her social standing and that of her children. Amanda is a survivor. A single mother who loves her children deeply and worries continually about their future.
[TOM WINGFIELD]
Male, any ethnicity, late 40s – 60s. Tom is our narrator and the play is his memory. Actor must move with fluency between his “current self” as a mature and practicing artist and his memory of himself as a much younger man: a would-be artist trapped in a shoe factory. At war continually with his mother who he both loves and is tormented by. Deeply empathetic towards his sister. Like the others, he is trapped, and must decide what measures to take and what must be sacrificed in order to escape his life’s tediousness.
[LAURA WINFIELD]
Female, any ethnicity, late 20s. Actors with disabilities especially encouraged to audition. Sensitive, fragile, painfully shy and isolated from the real world. Amanda’s daughter and Tom’s older sister, Laura suffers the results of a childhood illness which left one of her legs malformed and in a brace. She is much like her beloved glass figurines: transparent and fragile.
[GENTLEMAN CALLER]
Male, any ethnicity, late 20s. An old high school acquaintance of Laura’s who now works in the same shoe factory as Tom. The gentleman caller is handsome with an easy charm. An outstanding success in high school, but life since graduation has been tougher than he expected and he is not quite the golden boy he once was. Still, he is cheerful and optimistic and does his best to draw Laura out of her shell.
