SYNOPSIS

Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that – due to his painful shyness – suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. A full description can be found at http://www.dramatists.com/cgi-bin/db/single.asp?key=4982

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Note: The roles of Tony Reilly and Aoife Muldoon have been cast.
ROSEMARY MULDOON (F) – (to play ’40’s): A strong-backed, strong-willed Irish girl who grew up on the farm and knows well the daily manual work; she has an energetic optimistic heart hidden behind her sometimes quick tongue, but has bouts of depression. She has been romantically interested in Anthony all her life. Irish accent required.

ANTHONY REILLY (M) – (to play ’40’s): A shy, poetic and somewhat eccentric Irishman, Anthony has ambitions beyond farming but is deeply conflicted when his father plans to leave the farm to a nephew. His inhibitions hide deep longings and an inability to conceive of Rosemary’s affection for him beyond their friendship from childhood. Irish accent required.
