ROLE Description:
Judit is Franz's wife and his sole companion on the property. The isolated life that they lead has made her a little bit awkward. She often experiences strong headaches and fatigue and during these times she looks pregnant with pain. Despite her initial shyness, she is very friendly and glad about having company. It is easy for her to care for others.
She speaks English well if not confidently. Even mid-conversation her mind often wanders and so sometimes her speech trails off a bit. She knows about herself that she doesn’t like to hold eye contact when speaking but from time to time she wills herself to do so. This puts an unintentional emphasis on certain things she says.
She feels uncomfortable in group conversations and prefers to talk one on one. If she senses any sort of judgment she disengages.
Her marriage with Franz is based on a pact: the two of them against everyone. However, the source of this opposition to the outside world is different for the two of them. While Franz wishes to divorce from society because he despises it, Judith simply wants to take refuge from the trials of everyday social interactions. Their marriage is guarded, we hardly get any glimpses at it.
While still fully committed to her husband, eventually Judith starts to suffer from isolation. The pains she experiences are at least partially psychosomatic in nature.
