Role Description

Widow Quince: (Lead) a three-time widow whose husbands have all died of mysterious causes. Rumor has it she uses arsenic as the secret ingredient in her banana pudding when she’s had enough of her men. She is sly, savvy, and has a personality that matches her massive beehive hairdo. She has a fondness for gossip that makes her an adversary of Pearlene. She is a master of manipulation and always knows how to get what she wants. She does not get along well with other women, particularly the ones she can’t control. But she knows how to charm a man and lure him into her web and get them to do anything she desires. She has a strong sex drive and is constantly on the lookout for new lovers. She speaks with an Appalachian Mountain dialect.
