"Biloxi Blues" continues the journey of Eugene Morris Jerome, who was first introduced in Neil Simon's semi-autographical play, Brighton Beach Memoirs. The play centers on the experiences of Eugene and a diverse group of soldiers-in-training as they go through boot camp in Biloxi, Mississippi during World War II. The play takes a heartfelt yet humorous look at the group of young men and their experiences with their, hard-nosed, manic drill Sergeant.
Roy Selridge (18-23): A follower, but still a tough guy. Not terribly bright, tends to take cues from others on how to behave and who to harass.
Joseph Wykowski (18-23): A typical "army" type. Very tough, very opinionated, a bigot. One of the few who seem like the army would be a natural career choice
Don Carney (18-23): Not very good at making important decisions. Sweet personality.
Arnold Epstein (18-23): Physically weak, mentally strong. Very intelligent and can't do something if he doesn't understand the logic behind it. He believes in standing up for what he believes in, even
James Hennesey (18-23): Kind hearted, gentle - yet will stand up to a bully, a peacemaker.
Sgt. Merwin J. Toomey (35-50) - Hard core army sergeant, lives to instill discipline in his soldiers through varying tactics.
