Character Role Analysis

Ann Deever

The arrival of Ann Deever upsets the delicate balance of the happy Keller family. She comes bearing knowledge that no one else has: Larry is truly dead. While she has no plans to reveal Larry's suicide note unless pressed, her goal of marrying Chris conflicts with Joe and Kate's desire to maintain the status quo.


George Deever

George fans the fire already started by Ann. He introduces suspicion of Joe Keller and puts both Ann and Chris on high alert for mistakes by the Kellers.
