BREAKDOWN

Jim Starkey's version of the American Dream is a modest one: to build a home on his one-acre plot of land, replacing his doublewide trailer with something his daughter, Lorelai, can eventually inherit. When a highway expansion project threatens that plan, Jim finds himself reluctantly thrust into the public eye. Two accidents—one occurring during a teenage tryst, the other during a hunting trip—throw a dark shadow over the family’s future. Jim is left wondering what happened to his now-broken dream, while Lorelai is left to build her own future out of the pieces.
Big Jim – late 30s; works in a soda bottling plant and has since he was 18. He’s managed to buy an acre of land and a doublewide that he and his family have lived in for most of his marriage. He wants to build a house there someday.
Sharon – late 30s; on her feet all day working at Walmart. Went from night staff to stocking shelves to cashier to assistant manager, but she still spends a lot of her time working the register. She’s hit a ceiling. Now she’s training herself to deal at the casino. She’s got good, fast hands.
Lorelai – 17 (but seeking an adult actress 18+); the daughter; a high school junior. Think punk, but not goth. More rough: denim, leather, redneck princess.
Coral – late 50’s- 60s; a widowed retiree living off Social Security and her husband’s pension. She spends a lot of her day at the casino paying slots. But she’s got a system.
Chuck – 17 (but seeking an adult actor 18+); Lorelai’s tutor; a high school senior. Sincere and smart, but he’s a medium-¬?sized academic fish in a tiny pond. He’ll get into college, but not a great one. He has never kissed a girl.
