Cast

Desmond Thompson (Grandee) deceased at 94 years. His recorded voice is heard. He was an ex
bank director, ex army and quite outrageous character. (A recording of
Grandee’s lines is available if required)
Mr. Thompson (Grandee’s son) – 60ish – a local councillor, pillar of the community, pompous
and very conservative.
David Thompson (Grandee’s grandson – 40ish) much more down to earth, very fond of Grandee,
more like him than his own father.
Gillian Thompson (40 ish) David’s wife, typical Mum, very fond of bringing her father-in-law down
to earth
Stuart Thompson (20’s) great grandson of Grandee. Over excitable student type – very in awe of
Grandee
Gemma Thompson (20’s) great granddaughter of Grandee. A female version of Stuart
Ms April Simpson (30 – 60) lawyer, straight laced, prim and proper, secretly in love with Grandee
Olga Thompson (20’s) stunning looking foreigner from Russia. Very self assured.
