50 years old. Tempestuous diva in the Shirley Bassey mould. A force to be reckoned with. To use the Beaufort Scale definition: “Force 10 gale – trees are broken off or uprooted; structural damage likely”. Emotionally speaking, that’s Gayle Bailey.
Mid twenties. Struggling songwriter from Grand Island, Nebraska.
Late 40s, early 50s. Supermarket worker with a heart of gold. Terminally ill. Loves her adopted son Jason almost as much as she loves the songs of Gayle Bailey.
Gayle Bailey’s prissy personal assistant. Hates her almost as much as he loves her. Jealous of Jason.
