Two and Two Together is the story of Tommy Hanson, a comic book artist with a security bear and a fixation on a certain man of steel. As the play opens, Tommy is reeling from the traumatic news about a childhood friend, something for which he blames himself, and his father. To further complicate matters, Tommy soon meets and is attracted to a mild-mannered stranger named David Sharpe, who happens to be dating Tommy’s sister Rachel. David’s entrance into Tommy’s life is the first step on the road to forgiveness, and to the acceptance that the past could not have been any different.
Tommy Hanson (33) - Comic book artist struggling to come to terms with his past, and it’s effect on his present.
Rachel Hanson (30) - Lawyer dealing with her own past trauma, who is returning to her hometown for a new job.
David Sharpe (31) - Rachel’s boyfriend of 3 1/2 years. Accountant with a direct, yet mild-mannered demeanor and an unapologetic lack of pretense. Resembles Clark Kent from the Superman comic books. (Ability to play a few chords on the guitar - not required to be cast)
Mary Hanson (58) - Tommy and Rachel’s mother. A busybody, but perceptive and well-meaning housewife trying to keep the peace despite her better judgment.
John Hanson (64) - Tommy and Rachel’s father. Cantankerous legal judge who is set in his ways. He can, however, be playful when he wants to be. He and Tommy have been at odds for nineteen years (and have not spoken at all for fifteen of them).
