BREAKDOWN

DARLA LONDON
61 : Act 1: Policewoman, CCD teacher, a caring and enthusiastic volunteer who is dedicated to her job and the people of her town. Act 2/3: Retired from teaching, she remains invested in her community, especially Bobbie’s re-integration into the town.
EDDIE WELCH
24: Act 2/3: Born on a farm, currently works at Apple. An atheist, openly gay. A difficult and traumatic incident has lead to trouble expressing emotions in adulthood. Instead, he prefers to mask his feelings until they explode.
BOBBIE CLEARLY
24: Act 1: Something odd about his energy and his appearance, but has a quiet charisma. Small build. Act 2/3: Starting his life over, reluctant to return to his town though hopeful and excited to begin working and supporting himself, looking to make amends to his community though his decision-making skills seem off.
DEREK NELSON
30: Act 1: Nurse, takes on the role of Bobbie’s “big brother”. Act 2/3: Married with a daughter, found Jesus but not necessarily into organized religion. Handsome, fit, he has the exterior of a typical alpha male bro, but his personality goes against stereotypes. The kind of guy who would read “The Secret” and do yoga.
MEGAN CURRIE
27: Act 1: Dance team co-captain, team manager, the alpha over her best friend and mirror-image, Meghan Gotschell. After a tragic incident happened in her town, she found a way to make it all about her. Act 2/3: Married with children, published author, controlling and intense, clinging to the past and letting it control her life and feelings.
MEGHAN GOTSCHELL
27: Act 1: Dance team co-captain, slightly subservient to best friend and mirror-image, Megan Currie. Act 2/3: Married, has grown up emotionally and by doing so, gained an immense about of perspective about her past, her community, and her relationships. Finding her moral compass.
PETE PFEIFER
24: Act 1: Goofy, easy going, everyman, a light-hearted yet long lasting best friendship with talent show co-host, Mitch Backes. Act 2/3: Married, owns 2 gas stations, remains kind and good natured and amiable. He’s been kicked around in the past but now he’s ready to take charge.
MITCH BACKES
24: Act 1: Mitch makes a good first impression but deep down has a toxic masculinity. The kind of guy who can empathize with you but also be a jerk about it. Act 2/3: Drives an 18-wheeler, slightly more aggressive as time went by.
RUSS SCOTT
43: Act 1: The cool counselor, former theater major, laid back hippie, dedicated to his job and his friendship with Jane. Act 2/3: Now married to Jane and remains devoted to her. Must play guitar.
JANE WELCH
47: Act 1: Got married and had kids young. The kind of mother who was always involved in the PTA., now spearheading a talent show in honor of her daughter.
Act 2/3: Due to the reopening of old wounds, she finds herself just as emotionally raw despite her attempts to cope. Her despair is the darkest of anyone, but she is funny and can be viewed through a comedic lens a la “Best in Show.”
STANLEY WELCH
52: Act 1: Married to Jane. Stoic, caring father. Avid hunter. Deeply affected by the loss of his daughter but not the type of guy who will open up about his feelings. Act 2/3: No longer married to Jane but still invested in hunting and the well-being of his family.
