Script Reading: 3 hours on Sunday afternoon

Character Breakdowns:

Narrator
Reader of the screenplay’s stage directions.

Jen
18-22, passionate, unfairly smart and pretty. Starts out broken hearted, ends up taking control of her emotions and relationships, becoming a fiery young woman of strength.

Jeff
19-23, charismatic, mussy haired, actor with a touch of geek. He’s the weed toking, hopelessly romantic glue of the friend group, chasing the wrong girl.

Scott
18-22 poster boy for white privilege, immature, stubborn, cocky, self-centered, with a confident, disarming smile, outspoken to a fault. His good looks and charisma disguise his flaws. He must change before he loses what matters most.

Anna
18-22, stunning, bubbly, immature, looking for men to fill the gap in her life left by father figures that were never there. Her dance major becomes a failed dream leaving her on a downward spiral, lost and conflicted.

Laura
17-21 Scott’s trophy girlfriend, sweet, quiet, underappreciated, avoids confrontation, and loyal to a fault. She must learn to value her own self worth.

Tye
18-22, fun African American male, med student from Beverly Hills spoon-fed a life he doesn’t want. When he takes steps to be his own man, it costs him the support of his family and the financial security they had provided him. This is the sacrifice he’s making for his own independence.

Paul
18-22, Open minded with a heart of gold but insecure. He is lovelorn, and often hides himself in other people’s problems. He is intelligent, cultured, and overweight; but wears it well. He is the underappreciated father figure of the group.

Darion
19-23, an athletic fraternity stud from Texas with cowboy swagger having a tough time letting even his best friend know what’s going on with him, which he fears will cost him his friends.
