About the play: A poignant comedy. Lee and Owen arrive at their uncle’s lakeside cabin at cross purposes. Lee needs to have a serious conversation with his brother but Owen just wants to party and pretend nothing is amiss. Enter Mary and Loretta – invited off their boat into the cabin by Owen – and let the fun (and a little bit of heartbreak) begin.
CHARACTERS (ages refer to characters, not actors):
Lee – Mid-thirties. The responsible one. A worrier. Has cancer. Foreman at the local plastics factory. Practically raised Owen after their father died.
Owen – Late twenties. Immature. Cocky and overconfident. Coasting through life. Not as smart as he thinks he is. Works with Owen at the factory.
Mary – Early thirties. Smart. The original nice girl. A bit uptight. Life has thrown her some curves. Runs the local corner store.
Loretta – Mid-twenties. Blonde. Also smart. A bit dainty. Flirty. Carefree. Aspiring actress.
