The Cast List
- 56, manageress of Lost Property at a Manchester Train Station. Married to Daniel, with 2 grown-up children. A little bit prim and proper, and very middle class. Can lack a sense of humour and gets stressed easily.
- 24, employee of Lost Property, Manchester Train Station. Makes a big show of not being very bright, but intelligent and bubbly underneath a rough and ready exterior.
- 45, fancies herself as lady’s captain of local golf club, and applies this to wherever she is at the time. Bossy, opinionated, fastidious, never wrong, married to ‘The Colonel’.
- The Man.
- 20s. scruffy, trampy type, always on the look out for freebies. Probably hiding a secret, without wishing to give away the plot!
