BREAKDOWN
Doaker – 47, African-American, severe features. Family anchor, historian, roots; no coincidence “oak”
is the root of his name. Works as railroad cook but has otherwise “retired form the world.” Vocal
musical ability a plus.
Boy Willie – 30, African-American, boyishness, infectious grin. Brash, impulsive, and talkative. Vocal
and piano musical ability a plus.
Lymon – 29, African-American, a straightforward man of few words. Vocal musical ability a plus.
Berniece – 35, African-American, still mourning her deceased husband. Determined and practical, can
match Boy Willie in wit. Frightened by sightings of the Sutter’s ghost. Vocal musical ability a plus.
Maretha – 11, African-American, Berniece’s daughter.

Avery – 38, African-American, an honest and ambitious preacher. Wants to marry Berniece. Coming
from the south, he “took to the city like a fish to water.”
Winning Boy – 56, African-American, Doaker’s older brother. Fronting like a successful musician and
gambler, but his moment has passed, “his music, his clothes, and even his manner of presentation are
old.” Lives life with an odd mix of “zest and sorrow.” Vocal and piano musical ability a plus.

Grace – African-American, young woman that Lymon and Boy Willie met at a bar.
