Meet the Sycamores – a madcap clan who sets the bar for eccentricity. When Alice brings her high society fiancé home to meet the parents, fireworks (figuratively and literally) nearly bring the house down. Despite their zany antics and unconventional ways, this tight-knit family offers hope that love and laughter lead to happiness, even in the hardest of times. One of the most popular and successful comedies in American theatre, this Pulitzer Prize-winning, depression era classic has a timeless appeal.
Needed are nine men and seven women / extras. Character descriptions are listed below.
The Women (7 Roles)
Penelope Sycamore – 50’s/60’s The daughter of Martin Vanderhof, mother of Essie and Alice, and wife of Paul. Penny is a loving and caring mother and wife, charmingly blunt and an eternal optimist.

She has also a zest for pursuing different artistic outlets, whereas the journey is the reward of the pursuit.
Essie Sycamore – Late 20’s/Early 30’s The eldest daughter of Penelope and Paul, granddaughter of Martin Vanderhof, and wife of Ed. Essie is kinetic, happy and is always looking for approval. She has a charming innocence about her that is refreshing. Her lifelong goal is to be a ballerina and all else falls in second.
Alice Sycamore – 20’s/Early 30’s/younger than Essie The youngest daughter of Penelope and Paul, granddaughter of Martin Vanderhof, and sister of Essie. Alice is warm, compassionate and perky. Has been exposed to the outside world and has assessed that her family doesn’t fit into the standard norms of society although her familial devotion and love are plainly apparent. In the course of the play she falls in love with and is engaged to marry Tony Kirby, her boss’s son.
Rheba – Ageless will need to be compatible to Donald. The African-American maid and cook to the Sycamore family. Bright, perky and takes enormous pride in her job. She probably understands this unusual family better than anyone. Dating Donald and really in love.
Marium Kirby – 50’s/60’s Tony’s mother. Extremely prim and proper, concerned with outward presentation. Conservative and repressed. Socialite with an air of aristocracy.
Gay Wellington – 40’s/60’s An actress whom Mrs. Sycamore meets on a bus and invites home to read one of her plays. She is an alcoholic, gets very drunk and passes out shortly after arriving. When conscious, she is boisterous and egotistical.
Olga Katrina / The Grand Dutchess – 40’s/60’s She was one of the Grand Duchesses of Russia before the Revolution. Since then she has been forced to flee to America where she has found work as a waitress in Childs Restaurant. She is larger than life and still carries herself as royalty.

Mr. De Pinna – 40’s/60’s Stoic, good natured and quiet. Has been welcomed into the family as a member after delivering ice years ago and never leaving. He has clearly taken to this family’s way of life and basic beliefs.
Ed Carmichael – Late 20’s/Early 30’s Loyal and devoted husband of Essie, son-in-law of Paul and Penny. Driven, quirky and friendly. However, he has two passions: the printing press and the xylophone.

Martin Vanderhof – 70’s/80’s Father of Penny, grandfather to Alice and Essie. The patriarchal head of the family, a man whom the years have treated kindly.

Tony Kirby – Late 20’s/Early 30’s The boyfriend and later fiancé of Alice, Tony Kirby is a personable young man not long out of Yale and Cambridge. Although he fits all the physical requirements of a boss’s son, his face has something of the idealist in it, invoking in him a certain fondness for the Vanderhofs’ quirkiness. He is charming, spirited and boyish.
