Synopsis:

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this months paycheck pays last months bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Margie thinks an old fling might be her ticket to a new start. With his humorous glow this playwright explores the struggles of being poor in America.

Character Descriptions:

NOTE: EXCEPT FOR KATE, ALL MUST HAVE BOSTON'S SOUTHIE ACCENT.

MARGARET (MARGIE with a hard "G") WALSH (Female, Caucasian, 40-50): Can't catch a break. Rough around the edges, wry, working class South Boston. Has had a hard life that has taken away most of her attractiveness but it still shines through. Physically fit from taking care of her adult daughter with disabilities, not from going to the gym. Desperate and determined.

MIKE (MIKEY) DILLON (Male, Caucasian, 40-50): A working class kid who made good. From South Boston now lives in the upper-class suburb of Chestnut Hill. Went to U Penn and then medical school to become a fertility doctor for affluent patients. Married into an elite family from Georgetown. Smart, hardworking, ambitious, and attractive. Has worked hard to refine himself although his Southie accent slips out at moments of stress or high emotion. Has a dangerous edge and lots of anger that he tries to keep hidden. He goes to couples counseling with his wife, Kate, because of issues that pertain to him lying or not telling the whole truth.

KATE DILLON (Female, African American, Early 30s): Upper class, intelligent, cultured and refined. From an elite and influential family. In love with her unfaithful husband but is wise to his ways and insists on going to couples counseling with him. Kate loves to host parties and teaches literature at Boston University.

JEAN (Female, Caucasian, Mid 40s): A tough talking truth teller. "A mouthie from Southie." Funny. Takes no shit and is a good friend to Margie. Works a catering job at a banquet hall. Could throw a good punch if pushed to.

STEVIE (Male, Caucasian, Late 20s): Manager of a Dollar Store. From South Boston, patient, understanding but has a job to do. Trying to be a good person. Likes to play Bingo no matter how nerdy it looks. Probably kept quiet through high school so as not to be noticed.

DOTTIE (Female, Caucasian, late 60s): Margie's landlady who lives upstairs. She sits with Margie's daughter Joyce when Margie is at work. Coarser than her friends, she considers herself a realist.
