Synopsis and Character Breakdown: “Every man gets to take a piece of himself to the grave,” declares Damon Davis when faced with the suggestion that his father has been unfaithful. But his cousin, James Davis, can’t let it go. When a mysterious woman appears, we amazingly discover, the truth is in the flowers. CHARACTERS *We are casting for four roles (three males, one female). Due to the requirements of the play, we are only casting three African-American Males and one White Female.
EDDIE DAVIS: (African-American Male; 60s) Eddie is an old soul. Son of a mechanic, himself a machinist turned business owner and operator, Eddie loves to fix things, including people. Charming, genuine, and a bit of flirt, Eddie celebrates life every step of the way in the paths he takes. Eddie is Damon’s father.
DAMON DAVIS: (African-American Male; 30s) Damon Davis is the surviving grown son of the late Eddie Davis. As a devout father and husband, he has clear ideas on right and wrong. As the surviving son of a man that touched the lives of many people, Damon isn’t so sure of his place in Eddie’s legacy.
JAMES DAVIS: (African-American Male; 40s) James Davis was raised by his father’s brother and sister-in-law, Uncle Eddie and Aunt Lydia. As such, he feels like an older brother to Damon, his cousin. He is now a successful jeweler with commitment issues when it comes to finding the right woman. That fact has been the topic of many lively family conversations. In the wake of losing Eddie (his father figure), James discovers this part of himself may be his greatest tie to his uncle.
LOU: (White Female; 40s) Lou is an earthy spirit. She's the daughter of a florist and works with her father in his shop. Flowers are the icon of her philosophical approach to life and relationships.
