Characters:

SARA LEE TURNOVER, upper 30s. Town beautician. Single and lives at home. Strong-willed and has a wonderful sense of humor.

LURLENE TURNOVER ROGERS, early 40s. A preacher’s wife and elementary school teacher. Attractive, stylish, very Christian — but she has a bite.

EVALITA TURNOVER, mid 30s. Six-times married, loves to shock her family. She was a beauty-and still is from a distance. Has a worn look about her. A wounded soul.

HARMONY RHODES, mid 30s, Evalita’s latest fiance. A musician and vegetarian. Attractive, tan, off-beat, long curly hair. Looks like Jesus with earrings. Has a past.

ORVILLE TURNOVER, upper 30s. Fat, abusive, unhappy and mean. A redneck trash collector.

BUFORD “DADDY” TURNOVER, 67, the father. A stroke victim. Partially paralyzed on his left side, but can walk with a slight limp. Has occasional moments of coherency.

MARLENE TURNOVER, 36, Orville’s wife. Temporarily overweight. A constant victim of Orville’s abuse. However, losing sixty-two pounds can boost a girl’s confidence.

MAMA WHEELIS, 80, the Marlene’s mother. She’s feisty, speaks her mind, and rules the household.
