 Sidney Bruhl, 40-60 
A well-known playwright, who has not had a hit in several years. Clever, charismatic, witty and unpredictable.

Sidney’s wife. Wants to be supportive of her husband, but also feels she cannot always read him. She is the protagonist of Act 1. 
Clifford Anderson, 20-35 
Sidney’s former writing pupil. Charming, likable, talented, humble. 
Helga Ten Dorp, 50-75 
A Dutch psychic who lives next door. She is the real deal. This character is comedic, but NOT a caricature. She needs to be credible.
