Lloyd Dallas: The director of the play, Nothing On. Temperamental, one third of a Lloyd–Poppy–Brooke love triangle.
Dotty Otley: A late-middle-aged actress. Forgetful, dating Garry, though she attempts to make him jealous by meeting with Freddy.
Garry Lejeune: A stuttering actor, easily fired up, repeatedly tries to attack Freddy after believing that Dotty was cheating on him with Freddy. Speech affectations disappear onstage but are ever-present offstage. Always is stuttering and completing sentences with, “you know…” Dating Dotty.
Frederick Fellows: An actor with a serious fear of violence and blood, gets nosebleeds easily. Often questions the meaning of his lines and moves. Blames himself often for things going wrong.
Belinda Blair: Cheerful and sensible, a reliable actress. She may have feelings for Freddy.
Poppy Norton-Taylor: Assistant Stage Manager. Emotional and over-sensitive, and envious of Brooke, whom she understudies. Carrying Lloyd’s child. One-third of a Lloyd-Poppy-Brooke love triangle.
Selsdon Mowbray: An elderly alcoholic man who hides his bottles onstage. If he is not in sight while rehearsing, the stage crew must find him before he passes out.
Timothy Allgood: An over-worked Stage Manager. Understudies Selsdon and Freddy.
Brooke Ashton: A young inexperienced actress from London. It is suggested she is a porn star. Pays no attention to other performers, either in performance or backstage. She rarely takes stage direction, and continues performing regardless of any other action onstage. Is always losing her contact lenses. One-third of a Lloyd–Poppy–Brooke love triangle.
