ANN DEEVER – late 20’s; Down to earth. Intelligent. Young but with strong convictions – string enough to hold deep secrets. She knows what she wants, which is to marry Chris.
GEORGE DEEVER – 30’s Ann’s brother. An attorney. Strong willed.
JIM BAYLISS – 40’s; Doctor. Wry humor tinged with sadness. World-weary. Longs for his idealistic youth.

FRANK LUBEY – 30’s; Harmless. Well-meaning but opinionated. Has little understanding of the world beyond his own backyard.

BERT – 9-11; Neighborhood kid who hangs around the Keller’s place. Must be small in stature.
NOTE: This production has a fairly short rehearsal period and requires a very focused cast.
With the marriage of his son to his former business partner's daughter on the horizon, Joe Keller's lie of a life unravels. A successful self-made man, he and his family fight for their future and struggle to stay intact while being forced to revisit the tragic outcome of a terrible business decision and face the sad truth about another son who went missing in World War II.
