All roles open

Roles:

Buff (M), 21-25 – Any Ethnicity. Eccentric, party-animal, comedic relief. Buff doesn’t seem to have much direction in life other than getting wasted with his friends and going with the flow. He is still very optimistic though and seems to just be enjoying the ride.

Jeff (M), 21-25 – Any Ethnicity. Aimless, rebellious, and insecure. Jeff is Sooze’s boyfriend. He always seems to be in some sort of existential crisis with his “philosophical” rants throughout the play. But he is also a dreamer that is just too afraid to take any big steps in his life. This complacency is what holds him back.

Sooze (F), 21-25 – Any Ethnicity. Ambitious, free-spirited, idealistic. Unlike Jeff, Sooze feels stuck in this “shitty” small town and dreams big. She wants to move to New York City to pursue art as a career. When the opportunity finally arrives she is ready to take that big step, whether Jeff is coming or not.

Bee-Bee (F), 21-25 – Any Ethnicity. Sooze’s best friend. Bee-Bee is a bit more to herself than Sooze but still very out-going and sweet. Being in and out of rehab, she had a very dark past with drugs but has been clean since. Although not obvious from the beginning of the story, this battle with addiction does show its face again.

Nazeer “Norman” (M), 25-32 – Middle-Eastern. Employee of the family-run convenience store. Hard-working student. Trying to work hard enough to make a better life for himself and for his family. He regularly tries to kick the group out of the parking lot for their loitering, drinking, and vandalism. He faces much conflict with the group, especially Tim, which often result in violence.

Pakeeza (F), 30-40 – Middle-Eastern. Namer’s very over-protective sister. Also works at the convenience store.

Pony (M), 21-25 – Any Ethnicity. (Required: Skilled guitarist and song-writer) “The friend that got out”. Pony made it big in the music industry practically over night. Now that he’s big and famous, he returns to visit his old friends because he happens to be playing a show nearby. Jeff and Pony were pretty much best friends and used to play music together.

Erica (F), 25-30 – Any Ethnicity. Pony’s Publicist. She lived in LA her entire life and comes from a very wealthy family. She’s a young, alternative girl with an edge to her. It is important to note that like the other characters, she is not played like a stereotypically depicted publicist or caricature in any way.
