  • ABERNATHY : Gregory has recently lost his wife and is now even less available for his daughter Penelope than when her mother was alive. He is a weasel full of secrets and affairs including an unacknowledged son he fathered years ago while cheating on his wife. The successful coverup of his son's existence is threatened after this now adult son finds him via a DNA search. This is no happy reunion for Gregory or his son Simon who is looking for his mother, answers and revenge. Gregory is scared shitless and ill equipped on every level. He lives in a constant state of chaos and dishevelment. He miscalculates the wrath Simon feels from his abandonment.

She is well taken care of and trusted by her close knit remaining family. They think she is coping well but at heart she is still a child who has been putting on a facade and is in desperate need of an outlet for her emotional burdens. All other ambitions and talents are clouded by her grief and stubbornness. She carries herself confidently but deep down is insecure, naive and lonely. A go-getter who doesn't give up easily, she is bold in her determination to get her mother back at any cost and is willing to spend the rest of her life doing so.

  • THE BALLAD OF DALE AND TERRY : Always been a little out-there, Dale finds it hard to make friends or maintain a romantic relationship. Geeky, nerdy, dorky, frankly Dale's a bit of a loser. He left his successful IT job to pursue his dream of writing for a newspaper, instead...four years after getting his foot in the door at the paper as a paid intern, he is still the intern. Thinks he is way better at everything than he actually is, but he's only confident when alone. Having always had an active imagination Dale is not aware this epic "imagination' has progressed to a state of delusions and hallucinations. Physically he would never be capable of being the gumshoe report he thinks himself to be. A personality only a mother could love.

He doing his best to raise his 17yr old feisty daughter. He always looks apologetic, nervous, and like he just touched something really gross. The kind of guy who would apologize to a mannequin if he bumped it. Pathetic in an endearing way. Doesn't have many friends, but that only bothers him sometimes. He is super supportive of his soon to be ex-wife Lynn, they will always be friends and good co-parents of Sidney. Terry really tries to find the best in people, even his very odd next door neighbor Dale. He is polite and sweet with a wonderfully slight southern accent.

  • THE BALLAD OF DALE AND TERRY : To play 17yrs. White or Mixed Race. Sidney is going through an edgy, rebellious phase. An only child in every sense, a bit of a diva and a drama queen, and doesn't take no for an answer. She tires her hardest to come across as a tough mean spirited girl. She is in the middle of one of her many teenage phases, this time it's modern grunge. She thinks the world revolves around her and Terry treats her that way. Her parents' divorce is really hard on her, but she would never admit that. She is very creeped out by her weirdo neighbor Dale and thinks he's a peeper.
