Jim, Male Lead

The main character, Jim, is a charming yet sympathetic young man, a pathological liar who’s overdue some harsh lessons. He will tell any old yarn to get himself out of a sticky situation or to reap a reward. The truth is irrelevant and words don’t hold much meaning to him.

Male, aged 18 to 22

Maureen (Mother)

Maureen is a typical Irish mother who is too naive for her own good. Maureen’s love is strong for her son, and the penalty for that is 24/7 anxiety and worry. When her son, Jim finally returns home after being missing after the festival, her delight soon sours and her face stiffens, let the interrogations begin.

Tony (Father)

Tony is the epitome of the Irish father. A man of few words, but when he speaks his words have weight as a result. He listens to the others ramble and he nods and digests the content, only ever opening his mouth for a quip, to support his wife or to drop wisdom.
