Abby Binder – This role has been cast. She is a blunt, no-nonsense, stern resident at Bristol Place Senior Living.
Marilyn Dunne – 70’s-80’s – Abby’s chipper, chatterbox roommate at Bristol Place Senior Living; a warm and pleasant personality who always means the best; her strength lies in her ability to always keep her chipper cool, even in extreme situations; ultimately, she is looking for a friend.
Scotty – 20’s-30’s – A bright, dedicated, and committed resident aide at Bristol Place Senior Living; an aspiring actor; he is trying to do his job to the best of his ability and help Marilyn and Abby get along, but he will not shy away from putting his foot down with Marilyn when needed.
Benjamin, Lewis and Clown – 40’s – played by the same actor. Benjamin: The estranged son of Abby; reclusive and shy; rough around the edges; a former addict who has relapsed many times; he is trying to make a better life and comes to make amends with his mother. Lewis: Marilyn’s son, who is also a skydiving instructor; knowledgeable and lively. Clown: An actor in a haunted house who plays an evil clown that tries to steal and eat a baby.
Colleen and Woman in White – 30’s-40’s – played by same actor. Colleen: The bright, sunny, lighthearted, perky, quirky, and caring daughter of Marilyn and wife of Derek; high-energy like her mother, but with more fierceness; will go to extreme lengths to help her mother gain a friend. Woman in White: An actress in a haunted house who is trying to save her baby from the Clown.
Derek, Zombie Butler, Masked Man – 30’s-40’s – played by same actor. Derek: Colleen’s other half, literally and figuratively; more realistic and reserved than his wife; always cautious and worried. Zombie Butler: An actor who is leading the haunted house tour. Also plays Masked Man, a pretend mugger.
A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.
