Cast of Characters

Emma / Narrator - Sandy’s mother, late 20s, motherly, protective, and joyful. There must be something special about her if she was able to lighten the Glassblower’s heart. 

Young Sandy - Approximately 10 years old, cute, buoyant, optimistic 

Sandy - A feisty 16-year-old girl, torn between loyalty to her father and a desire to carve out her own path in life. 

George, the Glassblower - A man with a hardened heart, 40s; Sandy’s father. George spent years as an indentured servant. He enjoyed a brief period of happiness in his life, but it was taken away from him too soon when tragedy struck. Hides away from the rest of what he sees as a cruel, unforgiving world, while worrying about what will become of Sandy. 

Kiminuna - Native American healer, any age. A friend to George, while wary of the Governor. 

Governor Littleworth - A pompous man in his 40s-50s. Narcissistic, full of himself, grandiose to an obscene level. 

Lady Littleworth - The governor’s wife, 20s-40s, materialistic, shallow, opportunistic, and those are her good qualities! 

The Potter - World-weary, overworked member of the colony. Dealing with his own personal tragedies, but unlike George, not yet ready to give up the fight. 30-40s 

Ratcliffe - Resembles a rat in manner and appearance, early 20s. Lovelorn, loyal, and sympathetic. The Potter’s son, he believes he’d been cursed by a witch and longs for acceptance, while experience has taught him not to get his hopes up. 

Percival Grey, the Cabin Boy - An idealistic young man, newly arrived in the colony, age 18-22. 

Captain Shrug - No-nonsense officer, 40s-50s, emissary of the king. 

Master of Revels - Leader of the exiled troupe of entertainers, 30s. Not as entertaining to others as he is in his own mind. 

Katerina - A fearless Russian animal tamer, female, early 20s 

Captain of the Guard - A dedicated, but world-weary warrior in his 50s 

Foreman - Cockney Workman, 30s-50s 

Page - A teenager 

Soldier - Strapping young man, 20s
