Cast of Characters (in order of appearance)

"F" : (30's - 40's)

Dwyer's son. Indecisive, touchy, naïve, resentful.

He blames his childhood for his failure at long-term relationships yet he is still an optimist about romance.

Ignoring the lessons of his previous break ups, he cheerfully courts his next prospect. The near-constant unfairness of life interfering with his happiness is his greatest mystery.

Dwyer : (55 - 80's)

"F"'s father. Retired, low key, well-educated, utilitarian.

He is sentimental about his ex but hardheaded about everything else. 

Personal life should be approached like a business. To succeed, you assess your situation and adopt viable strategies to overcome misfortune. Nothing irritates more than those who wallow in their infantile narcissism.

Charlie : (55 - 80's)

"F"’s mom’s long term girlfriend/lover.

A free-thinking senior tomboy who enjoys the occasional martini while undertaking home repairs.
