BREAKDOWN
Seeking:

[NYA] (Female, African American, Mid-Late 30s) A single mother. Public high school teacher. Trying to raise her teenage son on her own with much difficulty. A good teacher inspiring her students in a stressed environment. A struggling parent doing her damnedest. Strong but burning out. Smoker. Sometimes drinker. Holding it together by a thread.
[OMARI] (Male, African-American, Late Teens) Nya’s son. Smart and astute. Rage without release. Tender and honest at his core. Something profoundly sensitive amidst the anger. Wrestling with his identity between private school education and being from a so-called urban community.
[JASMINE] (Female, African American or Latina, Late Teens) Sensitive and tough. A sharp bite, a soft smile. Profoundly aware of herself and her environment. Attends upstate private school but from a so-called urban environment. IN touch with the poetry of her own language.
[XAVIER] (Male, African American, Mid-Late 30s) Nya’s ex-husband. Omari’s father. Single father. Struggling to connect to his own son. Marketing executive. Wounded relationship with his ex-wife. Financially stable. Emotionally impoverished.
[LAURIE] (Female, Caucasian, 50s) A pistol of a woman. Teaches in public high school and can hold her own against the tough students and the stressed environment. Doesn’t bite her tongue. A don’t-screw-with-me chick.
[DUN] (Male, African American, Early-Mid 30s) Public high school security guard. Fit and optimistic. Charismatic with women. Genuine and thoughtful and trying to be a gentleman in a stressed environment. It’s not easy.
