A charming, plumb darling in her late sixties. Always dressed in Victorian garb. She is proper, innocent, and sweet even though her ‘charities’ result in populating the cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers.
Abby’s sister. Also a sweet charming thin woman in her sixties. Her clothes , also Victorian, include a high collared blouse to cover her neck. She, like her sister, enjoys populating the cellar with the remains of her charities.
Abby and Martha’s nephew. He lives with his aunts. He is a man in his forties with a large black moustache. His clothes include a frock coat and pince-nez attached to a black ribbon. A look and manner suggestive of Teddy Roosevelt.
Another nephew of Abby and Martha; Teddy’s brother. He is in his late twenties to early thirties. He is very excitable. He is also engaged to Elaine Harper but can rarely find time to show her his affection and feeling.
Mortimer and Teddy’s long-lost brother. He is in his forties. He is evil and sinister and evokes fear in all just from his shear presence. He looks strikingly familiar to a horror movie character. He is murderer and not afraid to add to his list of victims.
Jonathan’s accomplice. He is not really a doctor but operates as if he were. A short man in stature in his forties with a slight German accent. Fears Jonathan and gives into whatever he wants.
Mortimer’s fiancée. She lives next door to the Brewster’s. She is a sweet, charming girl in her mid-twenties who never seems to be able to capture the affection she deserves from Mortimer. Her father is the local minister.

Police officer on the local beat. A friend of the family.
Another officer on the local beat. Also a friend of the family.

Head of the local police precinct. A man/woman in his/her early fifties. He/she is all business and has little time for foolishness.
He is the Superintendent of Happy Dale Sanitorium. A man in his late fifties. He is a tight-lipped disciplinarian.
A lonely, elderly man who arrives at the Brewster home in search of a room and unknowingly the next possible ‘victim’ of the two aunt’s ‘charity’. (very minor role).
