Breakdown

DAPHNA FEYGENBAUM: 22, female, Jewish. Liam & Jonah’s first cousin. 2/3 body, 1/3 hair. Daphna is very connected to her Jewish heritage. She is highly opinionated and easily lets her defensiveness turn into aggression towards her opponents. Subtlety is not in her nature. Argumentative. The actor must have the ability to approach the material with a sense of humor and wit and possess strong comedic timing.

LIAM HABER: 25, male, Jewish. Daphna’s cousin. Attractive, put-together young professional on a trajectory for success. U of Chicago Asian Studies PhD student. Former Fulbright scholar in Japan. Has as much of a sense of humor as an overdue library book. Clearly lost his tolerance for Daphna a long time ago and isn’t discreet about the way he feels.

JONAH HABER: 21, male, Jewish. Liam’s younger brother. Sometime-UVM sophomore. Just a regular guy - less lanky than his brother. Less brainy. More brawn. More heart. Sensitive. Doesn’t always speak up but when he does, it makes a strong impact. Caught in the middle.

MELODY [CAST]: 24, female, very clearly not Jewish. Liam’s girlfriend. Quite pretty and blonde. Dreams of being an opera singer but is unaware that she has a terrible voice. She is currently working as an administrator at a high school for underprivileged kids with only a treble clef tattoo to remind her of her love of music. A peacemaker with a positive outlook on life.
