ALEXANDER CRUDEN – Author of Cruden’s Complete Concordance to the Old and New Testaments. A short, obsessive man who speaks with a hint of the Aberdeen accent he grew up with and a stutter that gets worse under stress. He seldom makes full eye contact, except with Christiana, and his speech with her is generally without a stutter. He’s thirty-eight when the action begins.
CHRISTIANA – Age sixteen, blind. We learn late in the play that she’s a hallucination.
OLDER MAN – Plays James Chalmers, Doctor Sloane, Doctor Monro, Mister Hogarth, Job London, Reverend Blackwell, and Older Sailor.
YOUNGER MAN – Plays Lord-in-Waiting, Mister Davis, Thomas Blackwell Junior, Mister Crookshank, Reverend Guyse, Mister Wright, and Younger Sailor.
WOMAN – Plays Elizabeth Blackwell, Queen Caroline of Anspach, Mrs. Payne, Mrs. Grant, Lord Chief Justice Sir William Lee, and Bunter Jane.
