What a Young Wife Ought to Know
by Hannah Moscovitch
SOPHIE – Working class mother in 1920s upper Canada. 30-something. But she probably looks older, after several very rough pregnancies. In some scenes, we flash back to 16 year-old Sophie.
ALMA – 18 or 19 years old. Fiery, attractive. Also born to a working class family. Living in the gutter, but looking at the stars.
JOHNNY – 30-something. Handsome and strong. But with a boyish charm. Johnny has a working class Irish dialect. Hard, not lilting. He’s only been living in Canada a few years.
A Kind of Reminiscence (working title)
by Michael MacKenzie
MINNA BERNAY – A woman in her early forties. Intelligent. Must be able to speak English with a German (or Austrian) accent.
SIGMUND FREUD – Around 50. Must be able to speak English with a German (or Austrian) accent.
NORA BARNACLE – Early to mid twenties. Pregnant. Intelligent, wry sense of humour. Irish dialect.
JAMES JOYCE – Mid twenties. Devastatingly intelligent. Irish dialect.
