BREAKDOWN

The Cake
Jen - 20’s or 30’s female Born and raised in North Carolina, she has brought her southern manners with her to Brooklyn, where she has made a home with her fiancée, Macy. An experienced event planner with a compulsive attention to detail. Considerate, kind, and enthusiastic, she wants to see the best in people, though she doesn’t always see it in herself. Her traditional upbringing is often at odds with her newfound liberal lifestyle, and planning her lesbian wedding in her hometown brings that tension to a crisis point.
Macy - 20’s or 30’s female (African American) Born and raised in New York. Progressive, sharp, outspoken. Very confident in her belief system, and she doesn’t hesitate to challenge those who think differently. Innately curious and inquisitive. She has a deep love for Jen, although she is impatient with Jen’s willingness to make allowances for her conservative southern friends and family. She is who she is, and she won’t make compromises to coddle people’s feelings.

Irene - 20’s or 30’s female

Angel - 30’s male Rikers Island inmate, on trial for shooting the leader of a religious cult; Puerto Rican, raised in West Harlem; stubborn, hot-headed, emotional, straining under the weight of responsibility
Valdez - 30’s or 40’s male Rikers Island prison guard; vicious wit, zero sympathy for the guilty; also voices Inmate #2 in first scene of the play.
Lucius - 40’s and above male African American Rikers Island inmate; notorious for committing eight gruesome murders; facing possible extradition to Florida where he’d face the death penalty; charismatic with a near-manic upbeat energy; found God in prison and relentlessly speaks in the language of Christianity and positivity; also voices Inmate #1 in first scene of the play.
