Catherine - 25 is brilliant, has an awkward personality and is often sarcastic. She is obviously suffering from depression, and her attitude about life is bitter. She continues on her father's work even after he has died. She fears she might have the same mental illness as her dad.
Robert - 50s is Catherine and Claire's father. He died before the play even begins and he was a very famous mathematician. In his fifties, he died of a heart attack, but struggled with mental illness for years. He has a very special relationship with Catherine.
Claire - 29 is Catherine's sister and Robert's other daughter. She is not as smart as Catherine and they have never quite gotten along. Claire is a more practical person than Catherine. She thinks Robert should have been institutionalized. Claire has a fear for unpredictable things like mental illness. She loves her sister and wants to “take care of her”.
Hal - 28 nerdy, romantic, and sometimes charming. But for the most part, he's a math dweeb. He is a former student of Roberts’ and idolizes him. Has a hard time believing that Catherine could be as brilliant as her father, yet has a crush on her.
