Note the role of LANE, a woman in her early fifties, has been cast.
MATILDE: Lane's cleaning lady, a woman in her late twenties. She wears black. She is Brazilian (and regularly speaks Brazilian Portuguese, and occasionally Spanish in the play). She has a refined sense of deadpan.
VIRGINIA: Lane's sister, a woman in her late fifties. She is a woman of quiet longing, and has a profound and unironic respect for cleaning.
CHARLES: Lane's husband, a man in his fifties. A compassionate surgeon. He is childlike underneath his white coat. In the first act Charles plays Mathilda's father, Athletic, and comfortable with some states of undress.
ANA: a woman who is older than Lane. She is Argentinean (and regularly speaks Spanish in the play, and a little Portuguese). She is impossibly charismatic. In the first act, she plays Mathilda's mother. She is also in a state of undress at moments in the play.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Everyone in this play should be able to tell a really good joke.
