Woman spends her final hours contemplating the highs and lows of a life cut short. She is accompanied by an enigmatic figure called Scarecrow who is Woman’s alter ego, perhaps a fantasy created by morphine, perhaps something otherworldly. Her faithless husband and her very catholic Aunt Ah visit her. Death is in the closet and often bangs on the door.
40’s/50’s mother of 8 children Ill on her deathbed She is raging against the dying of the light. She is fiery, profane, bitter, lyrical. As Woman approaches death, she runs the gamut of emotions from elation to despair taunted and led by her hypercritical inner voice.
40’s/50’s Woman’s inner voice, her alter ego, her champion, her prosecutor, her defense. She questions Woman’s life and behavior -- sometimes as friend and sometimes as mortal enemy.
40’s/50’s The unfaithful husband who returns to the deathbed to reconcile –but leaves his mistress outside with the car running. Prickly, put-upon –but still in love. He goes to great pains to tell his side only to hear of her many affairs. It’s complicated.
60’s Woman’s deeply religious aunt. Brittle, no nonsense, sometimes bordering on cruel. Funny.
