Mrs Johnstone

Mickey and Eddie's biological mother.

  • Meaningful Name: Johnston is a rather common surname in England, emphasising the family's lower-class status, but the variation makes it seem down to earth (stone).

Mickey

Eddie

Narrator

Seeming to be the humanoid zeitgeist of the entire situation, they drift amongst the fray giving their disdain.

  • Catchphrase: "The Devil's got your number"
  • Gender-Neutral Narrator: They can be either male or female. The gender doesn't matter: what does is that they convey that almost uncaring indifference.
  • Interactive Narrator: He can be seen trying to advise the main characters.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Despite being gender-neutral, the Narrator is always dressed in a black suit.
  • Spirit Advisor: In some productions he seems to give Mrs Johnstone advice which is obviously not honoured. He is normally not on anyone's side.
  • Troll: Although he's an independent party he likes to rip on Mrs Lyons.

Mrs Lyons

  • Meaningful Name: Lyons invokes the image of a pride of lions, and pride is definitely something Mrs. Lyons values heavily.
  • My Beloved Smother: She does not want Eddie hanging out with the wrong kinds and especially Mickey.
  • Sanity Slippage: As Eddie gets closer to Mickey, she becomes even more superstitious than Mrs. Johnstone along the way.
