SEEKING TALENT
John- White male, late 20s to mid 30s.
The protagonist. An exhausted figure, John is quite wooden and monotone. His love for Rose is shown mostly through his patience with her, and his willingness to deal with as disgusting a creature as The Witch. However, as his resentment towards her grows, John may prove to be not much more stable than Rose is…

Rose- White female, late 20s to mid 30s.
John’s wife. Rose appears to be suffering from a broken mind. She exhibits an obliviousness similar to Alzheimer, and is only just enough aware of her illness to be saddened and confused by it.

The Witch- White or black female, elderly.
A notorious backwoods witch. The witch is a decaying relic of the Old South, dirty and vulgar and dwelling in a derelict home filled with ominous trinkets. Although frail and homely, her confidence suggests that she is more dangerous than she appears.
