SUSAN: Late 20’s to mid-30’s. Recently blind, she is doing her best to find her way in a newly dark world. Endearing but never helpless, she is an independent spirit whose cleverness is her best weapon in a frightening situation.
ROAT: 30-50’s. A criminal from the underbelly of New York and the mastermind behind the plan. He keeps everything about himself secret. An exceptional actor, Roat also takes on several other roles as part of his plan including a young suffering husband dealing with a philandering wife and the older father of the same husband. Roat is at times charming, at other times frightening.
MIKE: 30’s. In the Marines with Susan’s husband, he seems trustworthy, dependable and decent, but is actually a con man and part of Roat’s gang. But he’s having a crisis of conscience as he likes Susan and isn’t sure he can follow through with the plan.
CARLINO: 30-50’s. Plays the part of a member of the New York police force as part of Roat’s plan, he’s a large man with a large personality. Carlino is recently out of jail and doesn’t entirely trust Roat, but needs the cash he stands to gain.
SAM: 30’s. Susan’s husband. A war veteran who met Susan while recovering from post-traumatic stress disorder. He’s a survivor and unwilling to entertain thoughts of self-pity, either for himself or Susan, but his stubbornness might be pushing his wife away.
**GLORIA, 12-15. Smart beyond her years and lost in the no man’s land of adolescence, somewhere between a girl and a woman. Her home life is tough, but she’s become independent as a result. But she’s also prone to jealousy, and desperate to be taken seriously by adults around her.
**Only applicants 16 or older will be considered for Gloria.
