Role Description

Shelly: (Supporting) the audience's anchor to reality, the outsider in the play, representing Everyman and normalcy, at first amused to discover the Norman Rockwell painting-like promise of Vince’s ancestral home, but discovers that the charm of the home is a veneer, the home is filled with secrets and sin, misery and the grotesque, although she tries to help both Dodge and Tilden, and confronts Halie in particular with some truths, in the end Shelly escapes.
