KATHERINE: Female, Early/Mid 30’s. Caucasian. The female lead. An American living in Siam with her much older Thai husband. Aristocratic yet lively, fun, open-minded and high-spirited. Loves to dance and a lover of art. She tries to bury a past full of hardship with a life of grand parties and a radiant, positive personality. She appreciates beauty and all that life has given her – taking notice of the special moments in life and embracing them completely. (Would love to see others around her do the same thing.) Genuinely trying to assimilate to a foreign Thai culture.
CHAO-KUN ATIKARN: Male, Mid 60s, Thai. A diplomat in the foreign service. A widower who has just married an American woman 30 years younger than he is. In his professional life, he is a man of powerful eminence. In his personal life, he is scared, shy, and confused, because he knows he cannot make his young wife happy. Good hearted, yet can be aggressive.
NUAN: Female, 30’s-50’s, Thai. Chao-Kun’s devoted and long time family servant. Holds firmly to the traditions of Thai culture and status. Her devotion to Chao-Kun is tested by his new younger American wife. Through the course of the play, they find mutual respect and affection.
