Characters

  • DONNY
  • EULAULAH, Donny’s wife
  • MARTHA, Donny’s grandmother
  • ROBERTA, Donny’s friend
  • LONELINESS

Note on LONELINESS:
The character named LONELINESS is a type of trinity. He embodies:

  • DONNY's paranoid schizophrenia. Consequently, his proximity to DONNY grows intentionally and inconsistently closer over the course of the play; 

  • DONNY's image. What others see when they see DONNY. What DONNY wishes was his true self; 

  • The music industry - when masked. This mask should be white and cover only the top half of his face so that the audience can see LONELINESS breathing into others as described.
