ISABEL PETERS
(THIS ROLE HAS BEEN CAST - actors will be considered for possible replacement) (Black, late 30’s/early 40’s)
The most senior employee at Harlem Office, she’s become a realist who protects herself with humor and sarcasm after watching less qualified, younger co-workers be promoted over her. She’s overweight and married with 3 kids. Authoritative but with fun demeanor. She’s the kind of woman full of opinions and not afraid to voice them.
XIOMARA YEPEZ

Recently promoted to the manager of the Harlem Office, she’s street smart but a little nerdy. Ambitious and with high expectations for herself, she wants those around her to be just as ambitious.
