Time:1935

Fefu: the host of the gathering, full of breezy confidence, extremely opinionated

Cindy: close friend of Fefu, able to hold her own

Christina: the outsider of the group, appears disturbed and confused by Fefu’s actions

Julia: her character is in a wheelchair, it is unclear if the cause is psychosomatic or an actual brain injury.

Emma: most theatrical, directs the charity skit and provides comic relief, a whirlwind

Paula: more reserved than Fefu or Emma, had a romantic relationship with Cecilia

Sue: the quietest member of the group, the helpful friend
