A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
Violet: 55 — 65. Strong and sarcastic pill-popper. Her humor borders on vulgar.
Barbara: Mid 40s. Tough, funny, smart and in the middle of an emotional roller coaster.
Charles: 50s. Mattie Fae’s husband. Easygoing, patient and honest.
Bill: Late 40s. Barbara’s husband. Intellectual and frustrated. His marriage is falling apart.
Little Charles: Late 30s. Charles and Mattie Fae’s son. At a loss as to how the world around him works. A big lug.
Johnna: Native American woman, 28 – 32. Earthy, practical, straightforward. Pretty.
Beverly: 60 — 70. Very literate and intelligent. This actor must have a sly sense of humor and an easygoing and honest air about him.
Jean: age 14 – 16. Though Jean appears to be a “typical” American teenager (awkward, self-absorbed, insecure and also a bit of a pothead), she has a fierce intellect and a sharp wit.
Ivy: Mid 40s. The daughter who stayed home. Resentful. A loner.
Karen: Early 40s. A bit scattered. High energy.
Sheriff: Early — mid 40s. Small-town cop.
Mattie Fae: 55 – 65. Violet’s sister. Blowsy, loud, funny and self-deprecating.
Steve: Mid – late 40s. Fading good looks. Used to being an outsider. Very glib.
