Nellie Froggett– 96 (briefly 19 at end) – Yorkshire, feisty, fun-loving, but with a troubled past which she’s trying to get over. Wishes Sally was more like her.
Becky Jackson– 18 Nellie’s grand-daughter (can double to play young Nellie in final scene) – takes after Nellie, with whom she shares a mutual love, but less naturally rebellious
Jack Froggett– various ages – 20, 32, mid 50s – Nellie’s deceased husband – Yorkshire, fun-loving before the war but afterwards deeply traumatised
Sally Jackson– 55 Nellie’s daughter – conventional, conscious of others’ opinions, previously compliant, but now trying to make Nellie act more sensibly. Still getting over the loss of her husband.
Rev. Mervyn Godfrey– 74 – southerner, great friend of and support for Nellie, despite constant exchange of insults
Messenger (Balbir) –indeterminate age – somewhat harassed bureaucrat from the afterlife
