3 Women (Ages can range from late teens to fifties):
Angela: A Texas housewife, (30s to 50s) she has a great sense of humor and a fiercely independent streak. She is an earth-mother comedienne.
Darlene: A young woman, (late teens to early twenties) from the deep South. She is pretty, and simple. A woman who grew up in the coal mining town of West Virginia and the Mississippi Delta.
Sue Ellen: A Los Angeles career woman (20s to 40s). She is a “citified” country girl. Smart, very attractive, sexy and frustrated.
