Three major roles, require memorizing considerable dialogue in an 80 – 90 minute play.

JAMIE
Female looking mid-fifties on. Rowan’s good humoured grandmother. Her father died in battle only months after she was born in England. Her mother brought her to Canada in the war brides and children immigration scheme.

ANDREW
Male looking seventies on. A pleasant veteran on the same tour for personal reasons flowing from a nearby battle. He guards a secret from a pivotal event over six decades earlier.
