Breakdown

SEEKING:

Amir
40s-50s, South Asian. Amir is a high powered acquisitions and mergers attorney. Smart, intelligent, charming, and has all the trimmings of a successful and intoxicating Upper East Side or West Side life; is very “liberal” in his view of religion and a great critic of the Islam that he was raised in and would perhaps be considered a secular man if not an Atheist. Doesn’t suffer fools well but mostly because he thinks that’s how powerful men behave. He loves his wife and they have a cocooned and comfortable Manhattan life replete with Weekend getaways and dinner parties. He has worked and continues to work hard to earn his American Dream. At all costs. And this desperation to achieve the full mantle of this Dream is his ultimate undoing. He is ultimately a man hiding in plain sight.

Emily
Anglo, Lithe, lovely. Plays in her early 30’s. Solid upper middle to upper class rearing. Intelligent. Bright. Artistic. A painter. Interested in Middle Eastern Art and its semiotics. Got interested in the art of the Koran as a way to understand her husband’s culture. Able to match her husband’s intensity with her own incisive intelligence colored by the ardor of the neophyte and the gentility of polite middle America. Quietly strong. Resilient.

Abe
Nephew to Amir and Emily. Plays in his early 20’s. South Asian but as American as American gets. Vibrant, earnest, endearing. Hoodie, skinny jeans and high tops.
