The lakeside rental Veronica has managed to afford is a far cry from the idyllic getaway she and her children so desperately need. And the disheveled property owner, Hogan, has problems of his own – problems that Veronica is inevitably – and irrevocably – pulled into. A portrait of two strangers bound together by circumstance and the struggle for connection in an imperfect world.
Mid 30s-early 40s. African-American. A nurse and single mother whose life is coming apart at the seams. She’s just lost her job, and is struggling to continue to do right by her kids. Putting on a tough, brave face for the world, she’s more afraid of slipping into the abyss than she lets on. Angry at her situation and exhausted by the constant effort to be strong.
7 years old. African-American. Veronica’s son. A good, sweet-natured kid.
The following role has been CAST. Actors will be considered for role understudy and also for possible replacements if needed:
[CAST] Mid 40s-early 50s. A disheveled man, constantly down on his luck. Chronically underemployed and semi-homeless. Talkative and friendly, but in the blunt, obtuse way of the oddly socialized. His glass-half-full positivity is a pretty unconvincing mask for the baseline desperation that informs all his actions. An unstable character, capable of surprising bursts of rage.
