Taking A Chance On Love

Margaret Rutledge – is 75, the grande dame of the Rutledge family of Charleston, South Carolina, and that means money, class, and style. Despite all that, she’s remarkably down-to-earth—a caring and very bright mother and grandmother.


Adele Clifton Rutledge Heyward – at 52, is a statuesque woman of great charm. She is Roxana’s former college roommate, Edgar’s second wife, and Ned’s former stepmother. She is perhaps the emotional center of the play—wise, pragmatic, and fair. She is adored by the Rutledges—and by everybody else.


Edgar Rutledge – is described as “handsome and dapper at 55.” He’s a man’s man. Women admire him; men respect him. As a newspaper editor, he’s sharp—with a brilliant mind, displaying ultimate integrity. He is likeable, but intense. Personal relationships are not his forte, but he’s trying to change that.


Ned Rutledge – is 30, handsome in a “bookish” way, and very much his own man. He’s a leader of the pack, a non-conformist, and yet he appreciates order and logic. He’s not going to be told what to do, but he’s open to the possibilities.


Roxana Rutledge Gomez – is always beautifully coiffed and dressed in haute couture. “She is 53, looking 53, and trying to hold on to it.” Edgar’s first wife and Ned’s mother – and oft married, she’s manipulative and insecure.


Solange Moret – is a slender, “almost-thirty,” young French woman -- a free spirit who says what she thinks—rarely editing. She’s a provocative, free-wheeling idealist who turns heads and hearts towards new places for thinking.


Madeleine Moret – is a beautiful French woman in her late 40s, the mother of Solange. Poised and elegant, she’s an interior decorator who immediately inspires confidence. She is engaged to Ned and is intensely loyal to him.


Christille (Kiki) Moret – is 50, the ex-husband of Madeleine and father of Solange. He has an instant gallic charm that is winsome and warm. He is something of a sprite, his feet being firmly planted in the clouds.
