Junie Moon- Despite her facial disfigurement, Junie is a spunky, funny girl. She has accepted her condition and will get a great more audience sympathy if she doesn’t play for it. About the only time she really descends to self-pity is when she looks in the mirror. She wears a short cotton glove on her left hand at all times.

Arthur- He is a very brave man, as is exemplified by his looking for a job despite his failing health. His disease leaves him with little control of his muscles. He walks with a careening gait, favoring his right leg. His hands and head are apt to jerk spasmodically, out of his control, especially when he is excited. While he must maintain the walk, pick the places that he does the spasmodic twitches carefully. In moments of extreme stress, Arthur will stutter.

Warren- in a wheel chair, played by Mark Seeba (Tin Roof member)

Minnie – an old lady! “played” by Karla Pederson (TR member)

Dr. Kirkland- the young resident

Miss Holt- a young nurse

Miss Oxford- the head nurse, played by Ardith DuBord (TR member)

John Goren- Although he is essentially a nice man, John is embittered at the loss of his leg. Only when he is sure of his fiancé does he relax and become more like himself. Assuming that he has lost his leg at the knee, the actor’s leg can be strapped back and the foot attached to his other upper leg, a long full robe should cover it. He uses a crutch.

Marilyn- She is basically a nice young girl, but terribly afraid of what John’s loss may mean in her future life

Sidney Wyner- an unattractive, nasty man, a snoop

Gregory- Extremely rich and imperious, she is attracted to Warren only as an object she can manipulate in a rather sadistic way, under the guise of helping him. She should be dressed in the height of current fashion.

Mario- He is a sensible down-to-earth man of great understanding and pity. Mentally, he connects Junie Moon and his grandmother, for whom he had a great love. He, too, is lonely and a bit afraid of his involvement with the others, but by the end he has discovered that he loves and wants Junie Moon, which must be implied in the last scene.
