Breakdown

ABE
Male, Pakistani American, late teens to early 20s. AMIR’s nephew. As mainstream American as they come – his wardrobe staples include: skinny jeans, high tops, hoodies, and graphic tees. Becoming somewhat of a young Muslim activist in his community, he is passionate, headstrong, and devout in his beliefs. Loves his uncle, seeks his approval while at the same time the two are at idealistic odds regarding the Muslim faith.


All the following roles have been CAST. However, actors may be considered for possible replacements if needed:

AMIR
CAST - Male, Pakistani - American, late 30s to early 40s. A corporate lawyer at odds with his Muslim heritage. EMILY’s husband.

EMILY
CAST. Female, Caucasian, early to mid 30s. A painter whose work focuses on the spiritual roots of the Muslim faith. Attractive and warm, articulate and compassionate; strives to be even-handed and level-headed in both her personal and professional relationships. Perhaps less intellectually curious in her youth, Emily has worked hard to educate herself and broaden her personal and world views. On the verge of a major breakthrough in her career, she finds herself and her marriage increasingly threatened by her husband’s complicated relationship to his Islamic roots and faith.

ISAAC
CAST. Male, Caucasian, late 30s to mid 40s. A successful Jewish art curator married to JORY. A vibrant and seductive personality, ISAAC draws people in with his charmingly quick wit, easy manner and passion --- passion about art, about politics, about his family, about his Jewish faith --- you name it.

JORY
CAST. Female, African American, mid to late 30s. Recently made partner in AMIR’s firm. Married to ISAAC. Strikingly beautiful, intelligent, forthright, and sharp. An articulate and confident woman who has wrestled her way to the top. Not afraid to fight with the big boys and get her hands dirty if necessary.
