The play is the story of damaged and desperate people, haunted by their pasts. They are, every one of them, broken and clinging to or searching for some form of hope or faith. Yet every day they live, and they love, and they connect with each other. They are the last ones standing in a small, Southern ghost town that industry has left behind.
- Sam Rogers – 40+ male; sheriff, lead investigator, weary from a long career trying to make sense of and bring order to the chaos humans inflict on each other; it is his memories that guide us through the play
- Jack – 30’s male; charming and warm, an ex con who has devoted his new life to the bible and to Ainsley
- Willard Sprague – 40’s male; parole officer, congenial, straight-forward guy trying to do his job while dealing with troubles at home
- Tom – boy of 12-14; troubled and haunted, trying to find his footing in a life filled with pain and turmoil
- Les – patrolman, 20’s-30’s male; second under Rogers, keen but inexperienced, hasn’t seen much more than a parking ticket before, nevertheless enjoys the authority of being senior officer
- Del (also Voice 2 cop)- 20’s-30’s male; sees and hears everything from his vantage point of the convenience store in the center of town
- Glen (also Voice 1 cop) – 20’s-30’s male; patrolman, green and eager
- Lee – 40+ male; Ainsley’s boss, owns the luncheonette, curmudgeon
- Ainsley – 20’s female; not worldly but not as uncomplicated as her naïveté and open manner would suggest
- Dorothy – late 30’s-40’s; waitress, Tom’s aunt & guardian, strong and kind, somehow manages to maintain faith and keep her head up after all the pain and strife she has weathered
- Janice – 20’s female; waitress, Ainsley’s coworker, young but tough and more world-wise than her friend
