  • JIM FINGALE (20’s) – This role has been cast
  • EMILY PENROSE (40’s – 60’s) Editor-in-Chief at a high-end Manhattan magazine. Possess a great ambition to couple cultural meaningfulness with commercial success. A tiger professionally, it’s all or nothing.
  • JOHN D’AGATA (40’s – 60’s) One of the world’s greatest living essayists. Highly intelligent and often frustrated by what he views as trivial concerns — “trivial,” to him, meaning those things that are not in direct contact with beauty and the divine.


  • ANTHONY REILLY (40’s) an intense dreamer, dutiful and quiet. His subdued manner masks a full, yearning heart. Resigned to a life alone because he’s afraid to reveal himself. Sensitive and guarded.
  • ROSEMARY MULDOON (40’s) a farmer’s daughter and a tough cookie. A bit of a tomboy, but with a romantic soul. Single-minded, willful, patient and optimistic. Her hopes are fervent, but secret. She’s playing the long game.
  • TONY REILLY (60’s – early 70’s) Anthony’s father. A wily old Irish farmer, cantankerous, set in his ways, and sly. Proud, stubborn, and gruff. A fixture of his part of the Irish countryside.
  • AOIFE REILLY (60’s – 70’s) Rosemary’s mother, in bad health. When we meet her, she is grief-stricken because her husband has just died. A sharp, straight-shooting old bird. Doesn’t suffer fools. Weathered, opinionated, and set in her ways.
