James

James is seventeen-years-old, and tries to spend his whole life playing 'the good lad'. He is polite and well-mannered, dignified and charming. He is a real charmer to everybody from teenage girls to elderly relatives. But when Christian admits he is in love with James, James goes mad. He's furious that Christian could have such 'disgusting' feelings, and furious that he would sabotage their friendship by admitting it.

The ability to perform a Liverpool accent would be a bonus.

Christian

Christian is a seventeen-year-old boy, in the middle of a crisis. Usually Christian is blunt and temperamental, with a sharp tongue and a wicked sense of humour (if not, a slightly twisted sense of humour). He hides a lot of insecurities behind witty put-downs, confidence to the point of arrogance and an outrageous rebellious streak. But deep down, Christian is hiding a big fear; he has fallen in love with his best friend, James, in 1965.

The ablility to perform a Liverpool accent is a bonus.
