A sales-representative of thirty-five.
Like Leo, but younger.† He speaks at the start of the play.
A nurse in her early twenties.† She wears dull clothes and has the appearance of and manners of a nice young aunt.
Four lines in the middle of the play.
A woman of thirty wearing a vivid red dress.† She has six lines at the end of the play.
On the right of the stage is LEOís flat: a modern sofa with a telephone on a coffee-table before it, and a large map on the wall behind.† The map is made by joining together four ordnance survey maps.† It is dotted with red flags on little pins and one isolated black flag on a brown patch near the centre.
Left of stage is the lounge of the Waverley Bar: a table with two chairs, an ashtray, and a jug of water with the name of a whisky printed on it.
Between the two is ELLAís room: a stool with a telephone on it.
