Dennis, who is turning forty, is the most down-to-earth character who wants to get out of his everyday lifestyle and hitch hike around the world.

Pauline, Dennis’s other half, sees herself as very superior and determined to make the birthday party perfect for her guests. She follows the trends set by the estate where they live, and wants others to see her as a great asset to the community.

Jane is the estate’s ‘queen bee’. She is the leader of many groups and is well known as a simply perfect member of the community. She is strong minded, loud and very self-centred. She views Pauline as a follower rather than a friend.

Roger is Jane’s ‘devoted’ husband who spends his time reading the paper, working in the garden and shopping. He sees himself as a very significant member of the friendship group.
