Marco and Rodolpho are cousins of Beatrice, therefore family, but not by blood, to Eddie. Alfieri acts as both narrator and character in the play, he is Eddie's lawyer.
Act one starts with Alfieri and his monologue, setting the play. It then moves on to a scene with Eddie and Catherine. Eddie has just arrived home to find Catherine dressed differently to normal, more grown up.
