Characters
Clarence the Burglar (40s - 60s M) - A charming, intelligent homeless man, down on his luck. At the beginning he has a beard covering a small mole on his chin. He wears a concertina like a backpack.
Lily Eileen the Ghost (not young F) - An attractive, sex-starved, clothes-conscious poltergeist on a serious man hunt.
Cody (7 - 10) - The youngest son. Cute, lovable mischief-maker in cowboy gear. (Could be a tomboy.)
Rosella (40s - 60s F) - A Romani (Gypsy) housekeeper. The real mother and hub of family life. She's a tarot expert, a practitioner of gypsy magic, and well-connected to the spirit world. She spontaneously bursts into song.
Jonathan Woodhull (40+ M) - Jessica's husband, a lawyer and ambitious politician. Overly ethical, a little up-tight, he is a likeable social bumbler.
Jessica Woodhull (30+ F) - An attractive, neurotic, highly-focused career woman, suffering from guilt and suspicion. Jonathan's second wife.
Stephen the Groom (20s M) - Jonathan's son, the oldest of Cody's three brothers. An attractive young man.
The Bride (20s F) - Beautiful, self-centered, with upper-crust tastes and lower-crust sensibilities. AKA Deloris, Dawn & Twilight.
Miss Maytag (F) - The washing machine. Goofy-looking. her voice is sweetly bossy. Maybe she's dressed like a piece of machinery.
General Electric (M) - The Dryer. A military demeanor, ready for battle, but when Maytag gives commands, he turns submissive.
