[ALEXANDER IGNATYCH VERSHININ]
44. Lieutenant-colonel. Married, with two little girls. Loves philosophizing. Loves hating his life. Loves Masha.
[CAPTAIN VASSILY VASILYEVICH SOLYONY]
30s. Captain. So socially awkward he can come across as aggressive. Also in love with Irina.

60. Army doctor. Long-standing friend of the family. Still in love with the sisters' dead mother. A drunk.
The following roles have been CAST:
[OLGA SERGEYEVNA PROZOROVA]
Role CAST. 28. The oldest sister. A school teacher. Later, headmistress. Unmarried. Plagued by migraines and a martyrdom complex. Ferociously loving. Reliably self-pitying.
[MARIA SERGEYEVNA KULYGINA (MASHA)]
Role CAST. 25. The middle sister. A trained concert pianist. Doesn't do that anymore. Or anything, really. Married to Kulygin, whom she hates. Moody, spiky, dreamy.
[IRINA SERGEYEVNA PROZOROVA]
20. The youngest sister. The only one capable of anything close to optimism. Unfortunately, also capable of deep despair and a wildly childish sense of entitlement.
[ANDREY SERGEYEVICH PROZOROV]
Role CAST. 30. The brother. An intellectual. A violinist. A willing volunteer for emotional castration at the hands of the women in his life.
[NATALIA IVANOVNA (NATASHA)]
Role CAST. 28. Andrey's love interest. Later, his wife. Well-intentioned, if uncouth. Later, conniving. Insecure.
[FYODOR ILYICH KULYGIN]
Role CAST. Late 30s. Masha's husband. A Latin teacher. Maddeningly officious. Desperately in love with his wife.
[BARON NIKOLAI LVOVICH TUZENBACH]
Role CAST. Early 30s. Lieutenant. An honorary member of the Prozorov family. Seems pretty gay. Is not. In love with Irina.
Role CAST. 81. The sisters' former nanny, now their servant. Not great at what she does since she is close to death. Sweet. Tired.
Role CAST. 80s. Door-keeper at the city council offices. Hard of hearing. Done with living, pretty much. Knows a lot of trivia.
