Role Description

Dorthea Baitz: (Supporting) the daughter of a wealthy businessman who employed Ralph merely to get an heir; had “the shakes” of a different kind - mostly in the bedroom; although she is desperately in love with Ralph, that love has never been reciprocated and she has silently suffered the knowledge that her husband never found her attractive; she even went so far as to plastic surgery on his behalf. She has enough patience, however, to wait for Ralph to come around - to look past his insecurities to see that the devotion and steadfastness he once chastised are the very things to be cherished.
