HARRY (Man, early to mid-30s, any ethnicity) An atypical leading man with an old fashioned flair and an alcohol problem. Incredibly charming and playful; both self-deprecating and arrogant.

PAUL (Man, early-mid 30s, any ethnicity) Harry’s gay brother. Tender, particular, and dryly funny. Loyal and protective. He buries his anger, but grows in strength and conviction throughout the show. A strong actor with a singer-songwriter type voice. Baritone. Any ethnicity. Guitar skills a plus.
