Seeking (All roles are available (i.e. not yet offered and accepted)):
Man, early - mid 30s. Attractive, intelligent ex-air traffic controller who -- after failing to safely land two planes in a crash that killed six people -- now finds himself jobless, loveless and friendless -- and contemplating suicide. A good guy with a good heart and a quick (if sometimes sardonic) wit. Has been dogged by depression for years (even before the crash), despite his best efforts to shake it; now struggling with the meaning of life, and whether it’s worth the effort.
British woman, late 20s - early 30s. Very likable, pill-popping, pot-smoking London transplant, now half-heartedly trying to be a real estate agent in a New Jersey beach town. Talks a blue streak. Has a terrific sense of humor about herself and the fact that she’s such a mess -- which doesn’t mean that she’s still not a mess. In perpetual – and often hilarious – motion, in hopes of outrunning her painful past and its present repercussions. Ultimately looking for love and a safe place to rest.
Man, mid - late 30s. Emma’s closest friend in the States. Disgraced former high school Drama teacher, now a drug dealer confronting his wasted potential. Desperately in love with Emma. Very smart, very perceptive. A movie and trivia hound with a reference for everything. Wickedly entertaining and funny until he’s not -- and then it’s mean.
Woman, early 20s. Beautiful, sexy, sweet and naïve high-end “escort” whom Charlie’s friend has hired for the night to “cheer him up”. Confident, comfortable in her skin and terrifically sincere. Not the brightest crayon in the box, and easily confused. Does not see how being an “escort” might not be the best path to becoming an internationally famous, ukulele-playing pop-star. Ability to play ukulele and carry a tune especially helpful.
