BREAKDOWN
Handle with Care
Written by Jason Odell Williams, Hebrew written by Charlotte Cohn
“A young woman from Israel, Ayelet, reluctantly joins her grandmother on a trip to the United States. Circumstances both absurd and tragic bring Ayelet, who has little command of the English language, together with Josh, a young American man who has little command of romance, on Christmas Eve. Is their inevitable love an accident…or is it destiny, generations in the making?”

Ayelet (“ay-EL-et”) – Female. Thirties. Israeli. Beautiful, lovely, but has lost her smile. Wounded by a break-up last year, but not quick to cry. Practical. Focused. Searching for more from life but afraid to admit it.
Terrence – Male. Thirties. American. Virginia accent. Works as a delivery guy for DHX. Kind of a screw-up, but very well-meaning. Not an idiot, just not worldly. A solid good-guy. Funny without meaning to be.
Josh – Male. Thirties. American. Handsome. Has an innate charming-shy-funny way about him. Tends to talk quickly, words tumbling out when he’s nervous. Used to be an English Lit teacher at Virginia Tech, but quit after his wife died. Though wounded by his loss, he doesn’t like to dwell on the emotion and never becomes overly weepy when talking about her.
Edna – Female. Mid-to-late seventies. Israeli. Ayelet’s grandmother. Loves life. Loves to smile. A ball of vitality, vigor, and energy.
