Character Breakdowns 

AMARA 

Age range - 28-35,  Gender Female, Transgender Female, Non-binary,  Ethnicity - Any 

Amara is a strong-willed, vibrant and bold social rights activist who has just gone viral for her outspoken views on access to information and the truth about our celebrity and political figures. She cares what other people think of her and when you work in the media, that can be difficult. She has recently had a daughter with her husband, Jack, but has begun feeling that something is missing in herself. She is smart, controlled and complex but she has a shameful past that she has strived to forget.

ALICE (AND AS CAST) 

Age range - 28-35,  Gender - Female, Transgender Female, Non-binary,  Ethnicity - Any 

Alice has always been a follower, but after an incident in her past, her life was turned around and she decided never to follow anyone blindly again. She doesn’t like attention but wants to feel important in some small way. She feels like she is at a standstill in her life and that she needs to take things into her own hands to move them on again. She is a fair person and believes that people don’t always get what they deserve, and she isn’t willing to settle for that anymore. 

 

The actor playing Alice also multi-roles certain ensemble roles that include: Twitter users & TV hosts. (aged 20's-40's)

 

This role requires a skilled character actor that can jump between roles.

JACK (AND AS CAST) 

Age range - 28-35,  Gender - Male, Transgender Male, Non-binary,  Ethnicity - Any 

Jack is Amara’s husband and believes he is a solid support to her and her newfound fame. He is a loving husband and a reliable dad, but he sometimes finds it hard to not sweep problems under the rug. He can be enthusiastic, funny and kind but can also be easily distracted and flippant. He is proud of everything Amara is doing, but doesn’t really understand the dark side to her new internet fame. 

 

The actor playing Jack also multi-roles certain ensemble roles that include: Twitter users & TV host, an MP. (aged 30s-50's)

 

This role requires a skilled character actor that can jump between roles.
