Any ethnicity. Grieving the loss of her father, Kelli is a wounded bird. Struggling to maintain her feelings, she is fragile even as she tries setting hard boundaries. Sensitive, thoughtful, with an anxiety that is very close to the surface.
Any ethnicity. Mark is Kelli’s boyfriend, trying to be comforting and supportive but thinly agitated. When he falls under Lucinda’s spell he becomes anxious and starts behaving erratically.
Any ethnicity. Jimmy is the dark horse in his family, rocked by the loss of his father and struggling to be kind to his sister. Jimmy has a troubled history with his dad. Guarded, with real compassion under these layers, he’s trying to be the good guy.
Any gender/ethnicity. Lucinda is the ‘Siren’ of the title. They are a seductive force of nature capable of luring men (and perhaps women) to their own destruction. Their soft surface hides a monster. They sing something like “Habanera” from Carmen as the song of seduction.
