STANDARD BRITISH DIALECT REQUIRED

MIDGE HARVEY

Late 20s/ Early 30s

She is warm hearted, practical, no nonsense and a very nice young woman.  Neatly dressed but not well off.  Frugal, direct, well educated and well mannered but not affected. Predisposed toward cheerfulness and optimism.  Her one sadness is an unrequited love for her cousin, Edward.  

 

GERDA CRISTOW

Mid 30s to Early 40s

Gerda is ungenerously described as having a pair of eyes like a puzzled cow.  Timid and bewildered, she is often described as lacking intelligence and is most definitely deferential to her dynamic doctor of a husband, John, who is such a bully at times that Gerda suffers mild abuse as a result of her devotion to him.  She is generally insecure but capable of the occasional burst of confidence when she feels comfortable in the presence of certain people. 

 

VERONICA CRAYE

Mid 30s to Early 40s

Glamorous, poised, stunningly beautiful and well aware of it. Self centred, selfish, vain and bold.  She is a female version of Gerda’s egotist husband with whom she had a relationship 10 years earlier and whom she wants to seduce back. Hollywood movie star, though originally from England, so dialect is required
