CLAIRE


An elegant woman granted an extension on youth and beauty by a skilled surgeon.  Her therapist would diagnose her as a sociopath, if her love for her daughter and husband didn’t seem so genuine.


ERIC


Rich, handsome and well-behaved in public.  Claire picked him up as a “husband accessory” - it was just an accident that he also turned out to be nice and that their marriage has lasted for over 20 years.



JOSEPHINE


A gloriously fragile mess of a young woman - an eternally annoying  30-year-old teenager.  Her charm is the only thing that keeps people from murdering her.


MATT 


The guy who grew up in the 'friend zone'.  He somehow got married to his dream-girl...but didn’t know how to keep her.



BELLA 


The rebel twin - fearless and fun, lives above all convention.  She is the instigator.



STEWART 

Stu.  The carefree twin who, like his sister, enjoys trouble.
