Done To Death
An extremely attractive and sophisticated woman in her middle to late thirties. To her, everything is a joke with a reason to laugh. She and her husband are the epitome of the rich, devil-may-care type of characters who used to be so prevalent in mystery stories and they play their characters to the hilt.
A few years older than Jessica, he matches her in wit and sophistication. Always the perfect gentleman, he might well have walked out of the pages of Esquire.
Mildred Z. Maxwell
A large woman, folksy in a way, but a very determined and opinionated. She often has a sharp way of speaking, although she is a friendly soul. In her late fifties or early sixties.
He is much younger than the others, and, consequently more mod in his dress, but by no means "hippie." Actually, he is a very shy and retiring person, quite the opposite from the characters he writes. He has a quiet sense of humor which manifests itself in a small grin when he has been amusing, but usually he takes a back seat and admires the others.
The oldest of the five authors, but he is extremely vital and constantly interested in everything that goes on. There develops a small rivalry between him and Mildred and a small generation gap noticeable between him and Brad. He is dressed impeccably in a suit and is always full of boundless energy and enthusiasm.
A man in his thirties, efficient-looking right down to his horn-rimmed glasses which he occasionally removes to emphasize a point. He wears a neat, Madison Avenue suit. He is enthusiastic about the project before him but terrified it will go wrong and he will lose his job; hence he has a nervous air about him, plus an always-eager-to-please everybody attitude that makes him seem on the verge of collapse.
Unimpressed by anything that happens around him.
She is an eager, young, and pretty maid but one suspects, for a time, that her naivete is not all pure.
He somehow looks remarkably like a Dracula character with his dark, penetrating eyes and deep widow's peak hairline. When he speaks, it is in a deep, Middle-European accent.
About thirty. He speaks in a very soft and sophisticated voice which almost purrs his villainy.
Dressed the same as George. When he speaks, it is with a tough, staccato voice.
Typical of thirties movies. Her hair is done in a sever style and she speaks with the voice of a hardened woman of the world.
The epitome of the twenties ingenue. Her eyes are widened to their fullest circle of pure innocence. Her hair is a mass of curls and when she moves it is in the manner of the early movies.
Should look as horrible as possible. Possibly he wears one of those rubber "Frankenstein" masks and rubber claw-hands.
A beautiful girl in her late teens. Although innocent, there is a certain woldliness about her which has come from her life surroundings.
As modern as they come. She speaks with a slight foreign accent and is breathtakingly beautiful.
Exactly as the audience sees her (or him) when they enter.
