I’ve heard through the grapevine that people misunderstood the cast list. The characters listed are IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE, not order of importance. If you have been offered a role located towards the top of the character list, that does not mean you have one of the main characters. Also, if you have been offered a role located towards the bottom of the list, that does not mean you have one of the smaller role characters.
One of the reasons I chose this play is that there is not truly a “main character” – there are three groups, and they all play an important part in the overall story. There are characters with more lines than others, but that doesn’t mean that those characters are necessarily more important or central to the play as a whole.
On Tuesday, when we have the script read thru, you’ll see what I mean.
