Stuart:- A playing age of thirty five to fifty five. Dressed in a suit complete with a collar and tie to fit with the dialogue. The jacket could be off and on the back of the chair.

Amy:- Could be any playing age, but not older than Stuart. She is Stuart’s secretary and should be dressed accordingly. She could be quite glamorous.

Megan:- No age restriction but needs to be realistically compatible with Stuart. She is Stuarts receptionist and dressed smartly but very different to Amy.

Stacey:- Needs to be of similar age to Stuart. A very small part and enters the play on the closing lines of dialogue. Quite ordinary every day casual dress.
