The list of characters in the play has been marked up in ink. Many of the character names are marked with an x, possibly
signifying its absence from a particular production of the play. The printed brackets surrounding small groups of names are also joined by ink brackets that may reference a director’s notes on the ensemble. There seems to be a word written next to “The Bull” that may read “Xeus”. The initials “AR” are written next to “Bread”, possibly referencing a designated actor for the character.
