JACKIE: A twenty-three year old who could pass for twenty, Jackie is a laid back girl with nothing much to fuss about even when there is. Excellent poker face.

DOCTOR: A gentle, slightly awkward man in his mid-thirties.

FABIAN: In his forties, Fabian [Jackie’s Father] is the diplomat of the house who, every chance he gets, sides with his wife but makes an effort to remain friendly with his daughter.

MELISSA: Melissa [Jessica’s Mother] is in her mid to late-thirties. Like her daughter, she never raises a fuss, directly.

BEVERLEY: Due to the length and quality of their friendship, Beverley and Jessica are plenty comfortable with each other with nothing to prove. They merely enjoy each others company.

TIMOTHY: A year or two younger than Jessica, Timothy thinks he fancies the girl. Whenever around her, he copies her trademark laid back demeanor hoping she might take interest in him.

PAUL: A shy boy of about eighteen who keeps to himself but is pretty polite. Comfortable as a third-wheel.

GWENDOYLYN: A pleasant witty girl who’s constantly taking jabs at anyone in close proximity.

HILDA: Hilda, 22, is another longtime friend of Jessica’s. They usually find themselves having long conversations due to their similar take on things.

Short sections of the script will be provided to participants at the audition venue.
