Cast

An * indicates the role has already been cast

PEARL: Late middle-age, has a slight streetwise edge, but without bitterness. Wears the found/repurposed “uniform” of the unhoused

EMILY: Around age 15; a still, thoughtful and wary teen; also dressed in the loose and not-recently-washed way of the streets

MARK: Mid-thirties, grounded and wise for his years, while occasionally swept up with rolling enthusiasm; an executive chef with an
indie/hipster touch

*SARAH: Mid-thirties, a mother and singer/songwriter with spiritual warmth and calm, atop the frank grit and honesty of a natural counselor; dressed in the mix of a busy mom who might take the stage at any time

*GEORGE: An older café worker; not sharp at every moment anymore, but dedicated & well-intentioned

ISABELLA: A young (7-9 yrs) daughter of Sarah & Mark

VIOLET: Also the daughter of Sarah & Mark, a handful of years older (11-13 yrs) than Isabella

JAKE: Mid-twenties, a recent army veteran, now a cook at the café after returning from a tour of duty overseas

ANITA: Early twenties; a part-time café volunteer. She is what the government often refers to as a DREAM-er: brought to the U.S. as a young child by a migrant parent, has lived in Omaha most of her life but is not a documented U.S. citizen

AUGUST: A supporter of Table Grace, and well-off local business owner

SAMANTHA Another teen in Emily’s class
