GENE - Late 30s. Wears a red plaid pearl snap shirt. Dark Jeans. Work boots. His head is close shaved. He’s bearded. He’s got gold rimmed Dad glasses. He’s country. He’s smart, likes to take chances. Gets a little rowdy, a little aggressive. He and Dan share a Father.
DAN - Early 30s. Dan is bald. He has a studied fancy casual look to him. He’s wearing a nice kind of sweater, soft, Rag and Bone, maybe. Dark jeans. Nice thick nerd glasses. He’s a little neurotic. A little ‘Mansplainy’. He comes from not much, but it’s a little bit more than Gene.
STEVE - Early 30s. Steve is a to-the-manor-born version of Dan. He is not bald, in fact, he should have a glorious mane of hair. He is not afraid to wear pink. He is a tall thin charming bro of a man. He is a little bit gross, a little bit fun, a little bit too much. He’s pure Dallas.
TERRY - Early 30s. Terry is a Highland Park princess, but the kind of princess that went through a goth phase and starred in a slasher flick before deciding she’d rather be a mid-level executive at a tech start up. She looks like a million bucks, literally, like all the care wealth can afford.
CLAIRE - Early 30s. Terry’s best friend. She is bigger than life. Her clothes are wild, the height of fashion. She should not look like Dallas but like the worst excesses of LA. When she enters she does a little dance… it’s like “Did Coachella throw up in here?”
CHERYL - 60s. Dan’s Mother. She is pure country lot and can sure give a backhanded compliment. She is the kind of conflicted Mom that wants her babies to do good, but maybe not too good. She shops a Marshall’s.
JESSE - late 20s. Dan’s sister. She’s wearing a ‘back to the woods hipster’ flannel and maybe has a ring in her nose. She lived in Austin until too many ‘Claires’ showed up, so she moved to Asheville, NC. She’s an eye roller, very dry.
KIP - 60s. Terry’s Father. Smoking Jacket. Scotch. A shotgun. You remember when they opened up a Yale club in Permian because every jerk in New England had to come to Texas to take money out of the ground? Yeah, like that.
VENUS - Any age. Venus is not messing around. She is a big woman. She strips. She owns a gun. She probably has two houses and a very nice car. She also likes men that are maybe a little shady (Gene) but is trying to like men who are less shady (Dan).

Performances February 8 to March 10, 2019
DR IRVING BAER – White; early 50's, a very successful, famous, TV doctor who has been a household name for twenty years. To the outside world, he is a model feminist, a generous and charming man. To those in his inner circle he is a charming narcissist with an easily bruised ego.
KELLY HENNING – Non-White (Female); 30s. Studious, sensible, his assistant and a registered nurse. She’s an idealist who left Oklahoma to work for Dr. Baer because she believed in his vision and the work he was doing. She is very good at managing her boss’s fragile ego and trying to carefully and sensitively guide him toward the version of himself she wants him to be, but lately she has started wanting to use her own voice a little more.
MEREDITH BAER – White; 40’s - 50's. Dr. Baer’s wife. She's tightly wound and tightly muscled, the empress of a diet empire. Her business is directly tied to her husband’s fame and success and she helps to manage his career with a tight fist. She is shrewd, business savvy, with a tough facade.
RIVER THUMBOLT- Non-White; 20's. A journalist whose career is on an upswing. She has spent years toiling in fashion and teen magazines, always wanting to be taken seriously. After losing two hundred pounds, she wrote a memoir that was well-reviewed and got her taken seriously by the literati. She covers her youth by maintaining a serious veneer — she is non-plussed, not easily baited. 
BROCK SILVER – White; 30's. He once managed a trucking company, but after being unceremoniously fired, he has found a new calling as a blogger for the alt right. He is unassuming, affable, surprisingly reasonable, even charming at times, but his outward appearance (fastidious, tightly maintained) belies a dark underbelly capable of acts of extreme cruelty, and a pessimistic, bigoted worldview.
