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).




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.

Mr Lyons
