PRINCIPAL ROLES
WENDLA An impassioned young girl that is awakening to her sexuality and the harsh realities of the world. Instinctually searching for anything that fills the void of these new desires and can grant her any relief. She journeys through the consequences of new passions in a closed society. Falls in love with Melchior. Violent situations and simulated sexual acts are a part of this role.

MARTHA An intelligent, kind, and strong young woman that is made fun of for liking the less popular boys. Beaten and sexually abused by her father, but scared to be an outcast or kicked out of her home if she tells anyone.

THEA She is sweet, energetic, and beginning to gain small crushes on boys like Melchior, but still trusting of her parents and the systems around her.

ANNA She is lively and a touch more free spirited than her friends. Has a deeper understanding of the injustices happening around her. Wants’ to tell someone about Martha’s father, but is convinced by the girls not to.

ILSE She was abused by her father and cast out on the streets. She is bold, resilient, and upbeat despite her circumstances. She is living in an artist colony and stuck in a new cycle of abuse. Her and Moritz could have had a relationship in another life. 

MELCHIOR An intelligent, rebellious, and caring young man that passionately disagrees with the systems of power in command. His journey is one from head to heart as he fully begins to internalize his passionate views on society and how they affect those around him. He falls in love with Wendla.

MORTIZ Melchior’s best friend. An anxious, sweet, and sensitive young man who is struggling through this time of new awakenings. Bad at school, deeply affected by new desires, and trying to live up to high expectations from his parents end up being too much for him, so he decides to end his life. Simulated suicide is a part of this role.

HANSCHEN A confident, comfortable young man who chooses to manipulate the status quo instead of challenging it, such as Melchior. Is interested in both men and women and aggressively goes after Ernst to satisfy his desires. Simulated masturbation is a part of this role.

ERNST A sweet, and shy young gay man that is attractive to Hanschen, but too scared to make the first move. He feels deeply and tells Hanschen he loves him very quickly.

GEORG A funny and energetic young man that is in lust over his piano teacher and open about his sexual desires.

OTTO He is a shyer schoolmate who has a lustful dream about his mother.
