  • BIANCA (she/her) - A person struggling to communicate about chores, in-laws, and the stress of coexisting with her partner…and his parents
  • CHRIS(he/him) - Bianca’s other half who’d prefer to avoid any and all discussions of feelings or issues and tends to take an all-or-nothing approach to such situations
  • ROGER(he/him) - An older man unable to communicate with his wife about anything other than home projects or what’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner despite needing to address heavier topics
  • JEAN (she/her) - Roger's high school sweetheart who struggles to have deeper conversations and lives in the overly positive/ active avoidance frame of mind
  • MICHAELA (she/her) - Is trying to pick up the pieces of her relationship after her husband’s infidelity, public scandal, and imprisonment. 
  • SEAN(he/him) - Michaela’s husband who was imprisoned for money laundering and is about to be released from his sentence
