Character Descriptions -

Olive Madison - A successful television producer. She is intelligent, attractive, and wisecracking, with a good sense of humor – and she’s a complete slob when it comes to her surroundings. She has an encyclopedic understanding of sports, is a complete pushover for her ex-husband, and a good friend.

Florence (Flo) Unger – is attractive, very well groomed, neat and has just broken up with her husband. She takes herself very seriously, likes to clean, decorate and cook and is very good at all three. Flo is also intelligent warm-hearted (in her own way), and has no sense of humor (at least about herself) - she does NOT make jokes. She can also, without meaning to, make Olive feel guilty.

Sylvie - is desperately trying to stop smoking, and so sucks on lollipops or chews gum. She can get irritated with her friends, but has a good sense of humor, especially about her husband. Oh, yes, she is pregnant in the last scene.

Renee - Sylvie's best friend, can be very plain-spoken, especially when she points out Olive's failings as a hostess - and then Flo's. She is single and dating a doctor.

Vera – is very sweet, very nice, somewhat spacey, and, although quite smart, is often a step or two behind her friends. She’s very funny, but doesn't realize it. Vera is married to Harry.

Mickey – is a police officer, who is down-to-earth, plain talking, and has a good understanding of people. Sometimes she can take the "police bit" too far and she tries very hard to be in control of all situations.

Manolo Costazuela - is handsome, very well groomed, and Spanish with a Castilian accent. He is every woman's dreamdate and showers both Olive and Flo with attention. He must have good comic timing, as he gets VERY emotional. He is sensitive and appreciates Florence's sensitivity.

Jesus Costazuela – is Manolo’s younger brother - also very handsome, well-groomed, excellent posture, very romantic - and he also gets very emotional, and truly appreciates Florence.
