When a tragic, freak accident disrupts the promising life of the blissful Cass, the results travel like a shockwave through the halls of the Bed-Stuy high school where she works. Suddenly, Cass is forced to confront her fate and the scope of her fears while struggling to maintain relationships with both her new husband and her students. In this lively and thought-provoking tale of a seemingly perfect life suddenly confronted with reality, no one is safe from the randomness and chaos inherent in our world.

Seeking (all roles are available (i.e. not yet offered and accepted)):

Cass:

Caucasian woman, early – mid 30s. Part-time ESL teacher. Slightly neurotic, but buries this with her slightly immature optimism and priorities. A woman with a big heart, although sometimes selfish.

Andrew:

Caucasian man, early – mid 30s. Cass's husband. Pastry chef. Dependable, affable. Good-looking, but not slick. Stable, warm and sensitive, with a refreshing lack of cynicism.

Liz:

Caucasian woman, 30s. High school counselor. Urban hippie. Very neurotic, but constantly battling this with “peaceful” things.Pretty, but slightly worn.

Lavita:

African American woman, 30s. High school teacher. Coach of the Step Team. A bit hard, a bit no-nonsense.Does not like to discuss her personal problems; keeps her emotional life guarded.

Ricky:

Character is a native South- or Latin-American male, 16-18. High school student. A bit dark and brooding. Something of a loner; unable to find a place to fit in. A huge internal life we can see in his eyes. Should be able to move fluidly between English and basic Spanish.

Step Team:

Characters are African Americans, 16-18. High school students. Performers must be able to execute choreographed rhythmic step-team routines; athleticism and dance/movement training helpful:

Starr:
    Female. Strong, assertive, sometimes abrasive, determined. A firm, grown-up look, but yet to really grow into herself. Innate leader.

Octavia:
    Petite, pretty. Emotionally raw. Sensitive, a dreamer, fragile.

Bradley:
    A bit of a jokester. Still finding his place in the world; perhaps a bit awkward; has yet to grow into his limbs. Not necessarily effeminate, but is more comfortable in the company of the girls of his age group.
