Role Description

Amanda: clings to her Southern upbringing and all of its attendant qualities--an appreciation of manners and the finer things, an Episcopal puritanism laced with a sense of humor and flirtatiousness, a love of language and the art of conversation. All this, even as she has been forced to do heroic battle with near poverty as a single mother of two in a Depression-era industrial Midwestern city. She is fiercely intelligent. She has cultivated denial as the only means she knows to soldier through life’s challenges. Underneath her will of iron she has a deep love for her children. She can be cruel and she is often foolish. She sees and understands more than she is ever willing to admit.
