ISAAC CONNOR: 24. Cisgender son of Paige and Arnold. Brother to Max. Isaac’s main actions are to assess the situation, assert himself, convert, and keep things under control. The play is, for Isaac, one long attempt at squashing down a major PTSD explosion.
PAIGE CONNOR: 55. Cisgender mother to Max and Isaac. Wife to Arnold. Main actions are to entertain, excite (with new information she’s discovered), and tear apart the old regimes.
MAX CONNOR: 17. Transgender child of Paige and Arnold. Sibling to Isaac. Main actions are to excite (with new information ze’s discovered), ward off attacks, showboat, raise hir status on the family totem pole and stake hir intellectual territory. It’s important to the playwright that the actor playing Max be someone who was assigned female at birth and now identifies as transgender or gender-queer.
ARNOLD CONNOR: 58. Cisgender father to Isaac and Max and husband to Paige. Main actions are those of an old dog: eat, sleep and be comfortable. Arnold was an angry man but has had a stroke, which turned him into more of a clown.
