Character Breakdowns:

  • Susan – Mother of two and widowed twice, in her late 50’s. She is soft spoken and very old fashioned. She goes to church every Sunday and wears muted colors that cover her whole body. She is soft spoken and polite, but when she get’s mad, she really lets it out. Scared of death and afraid of letting go.
  • Pam – Oldest daughter of Susan, who is 29. She works in LA as a production accountant and rarely visits home after graduating high school. Very outspoken and fights with her mother more than she should. She wants to fix everything that is wrong in their relationship but is too stubborn to do so.
  • Shaun – Son of Susan and brother of Pam, recently graduated from High School, about 18. Has a good relationship with both his mom and sister, but can’t stand it when they both get together. He is more of a relaxed type of guy, not really caring too much about the future, only the present. He is more intelligent than he looks and gets treated differently because of that.
