Lindy - Jordan Cobb
15 year old Lindy was born a Melungeon in the Appalachian mountains. She is a free spirit, trained by her father to take care of herself, and has a special connection with snakes. Treading the line between girl and woman at a time of tribulation, she will need all of her skills to survive.
Reggie - Russell Jordan* [Articulate Member]
Lindy's father has a worldly heritage running through his veins, but he's very aware that many can't see past the color of his skin. He loves his family above, and makes a bold choice to keep them safe.
William - Geoffrey Grady
Finding a half-wild, snake-handling girl high up on the mountain isn't the only strange thing Williams has seen in his life - but it ranks at the top! As an itinerant preacher and peddler, he moves in many circles, and tries to make Lindy aware of possible dangers.
Ramp - James Edward Becton*
His childhood stolen from him, Ramp's deep anger and fear guide his every move. His discovery of Lindy awakens a new emotion in him, but he is unaware of how to approach her.
Hedda - Anna Kelly*
A preacher's daughter, Hedda's life was planned out for her - until she fell in love with a man who's skin color changed everything. Educated and sheltered, Hedda believes in the good in people.
Narrator - Cynthia Shaw [Articulate Member]
Staged readings leave off some of the 'tools' from our toolbox. Great narrators can help fill in those gaps, and Cynthia is wonderful!
