Bruce – Male, 25 – 40. “An aging preppy”. Bisexual, dreams of living in a house with a wife and a boyfriend who lives over the garage. Very in touch with his feelings, cries a lot. Seeing a psychiatrist (Charlotte). Lives with his male lover Bob, wants to date Prudence as well.
Prudence – Female – 25 – 40. Has trouble with commitment. Conservative ideas about relationships, doesn’t understand Bruce’s bisexuality. Seeing a psychiatrist, Stuart, who she had a brief affair with.
Charlotte – Female, 30 – 60 – Bruce’s psychiatrist. A bit crazy herself, has trouble with finding the right words sometimes. Has a Snoopy doll that she uses as part of her therapy (“ruff ruff ruff”). Encourages risk taking and being brutally honest in all situations. Rather forgetful.
Stuart – Male, 30 – 60. Prudence’s therapist. The definition of toxic masculinity. Had a brief affair with Prudence and is very jealous of her new relationship with Bruce.
Bob – Male, 30 – 60. Bruce’s male lover. Overdramatic. In a therapy group, but not seeing a specific therapist. Doesn’t approve of Bruce’s desire to date women as well.
Andrew – Male, 20 – 30. A waiter at the restaurant Bruce and Prudence frequent. Also in therapy with Charlotte, was in reform school until it burned down. Brooding, anger issues. Implied that he is gay, rides off on his motorcycle with Bob at the end of the show.
