Role Description

Winnie: (Lead) buried to her bosom, and later to her neck in a giant mound of earth, she's an eternal optimist constantly staving off despair in the face of ever-more reduced circumstances, she is indomitable and fragile, her cheeriness is punctuated with some moments of wry cynicism and fear; has created her own routines and imbued her ordinary objects with passionate importance, she is incessantly chatty, her dialogue sprinkled with literary allusions, her prattle intended to fend off loneliness; the most important relationships she has are with the relentlessness of time and her mostly invisible, inaudible husband Willie, whom she desperately needs, when she can get him to interact with her prove that someone is still listening to her and that she is not alone; seeking understudy only.
