An Englishman, in his 30s-50s, a member of the British army. “Well-fed, flushed and chatty with the spirit of adventure, cheerful and optimistic. English accent. London or similar.
A friend of Froggy, 30s-40s, a proof reader by profession, with a sad, thin face wearing a “forlorn” trench coat, he seems quietly and permanently lost. Charlie is at first afraid to be in the lodge because he might be required to talk to strangers. It is when Froggy, who introduces him as a “foreigner” who can’t speak or understand English, Charlie gradually discovers his hidden potential. A lot of physical comedy. English accent.
“Bet” to her friends, 50s+ a “regular chatterbox" - she is owner and proprietor of the inn. “Wise about some things, naïve about others" - a no-nonsense person, but kind and genuinely concerned for her friends. Betty has always dreamed of traveling and is quite thrilled with the prospect of having a “real, live foreigner” as her guest. Heavy southern (Georgian) drawl.
A formidable young lady in her 20s-early 30s. She's a “looker” and a flirt. She's Ellard’s sister and is engaged to Reverend David. She comes from a wealthy family, is bored with life, restless, and unsure of what she wants. When she discovers in Charlie a man who is genuinely kind and really enjoys listening, she believes she has found her ideal romantic mate. Southern accent.
20s+. He is a “half-wit” - according to Betty. A lumpy, overgrown, backward youth and considered by others to be incompetent – in every way - but he's extremely sweet, honest and genuine. Deep southern drawl.
30s+. He is friendly, open and seems like a regular fellow. A divinity student and “A good man to have on your side". He is engaged to Catherine and one of the play's main villains, along with Owen. Southern accent.
30s – 50s. An oily con man, a “mean old thing.” He had himself made Property Inspector for the county and wants to swindle Betty out of her inn. To call Owen “crude” is a major understatement. He is mean-spirited, ignorant, volatile, and extremely prejudiced against anyone who doesn’t fit his ideal. Southern accent.
