They are played by Philip Palmer and Daniel Kelty respectively. Oscar’s wife, Birdie, a true southern gentlewoman, is played by Monica Van Nort. Leo, son of Oscar and Birdie, is played by Robert Blake Nessleroad. Payton Van Nort plays Alexandra Giddons, daughter of Regina and Horace. The role of William Marshall will be played by Steven Hendershott. Servants Addie and Cal, who are nearly the only moral characters in the play, are played by Angel Palmer and Eric Blake.
