Jim Freeman (LEAD): (40’s-50’s) Caucasian male, looking for equity/non-equity actor. He longs for innocence and feeling which he has forgotten—his lost boyhood. Has fought an internal battle his entire life regarding his emotional ideals for himself. This struggle makes him appear inactive to others around him. Is trapped in the portrait of manhood society has taught him. Sensitive and sensible. Sometimes he possesses the articulation of a poet.

Blondie Shoemaker (SUPPORTING): African-American male, looking for non-equity actor. 30s-40s. Scrawny with graying hair. Leafy’s (Jim’s wife) lover. In touch with the ghost world. His actions are slow and deliberate. Highly aware of convention.

Eller Freeman: (SUPPORTING): Caucasian female, late teens, early twenties, looking for non-equity actor. Leafy and Jim’s oldest daughter. Like her father, she longs to maintain innocence until she realizes that it is merely a veil of ignorance.

Annie Freeman (SUPPORTING-CHILD ACTOR): Caucasian female 6-14, looking for non-equity actor. Middle daughter of Leafy and Jim. Talks to no one but Eller. Strangely fond of Leafy.

Linda: (SUPPORTING) African-American female, Mid 20s- mid 30s. An unmarried black mother working a dead-end job.

Iron Moon tells the story of the unraveling of a Southern family on one extraordinary night in the 1930’s. Based on the true life story of the grandmother of playwright Gabriel Dean, Iron Moon weaves together a beautiful and poetic story of people’s complicated relationships with God and ultimately of how we justify our own twisted redemption.
