2 Main Characters (siblings):
- Andrew
- Carol

Note: This story takes place in a house in the British countryside during the early 1950s.

Andrew is a tall man from the British countryside in his 40s.
He fought in World War 2, and has PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) due to his long experience as a war prisoner.
He now uses comedy, anti-conventional behaviour, and childishly mocking his younger sister as a way to cope with his mental illness, putting her in difficulty as she tries to hold a respectful image.
He used to be the authoritative older brother in the house, but now the roles are quite inverted.
When he is forcefully denied his coping ‘comedy’ mechanism, he closes himself off in melancholy.

Carol is Andrew’s younger sister, (British, aged about 35).
She is quite petite but the authoritative figure of the household.
She dedicates herself in keeping a decorous image of her family, as she has become the mayor’s wife, with particular struggles at keeping the embarrassing brother’s behaviour under control. She loves her brother, and the arguments with him often turn into comedic childish sibling bickering. However she sometimes inevitably breaks down and cannot stand being in the same room as her brother.
