About the Play
The Immaculate Perfection… revolves around the final year of high school for a group of students who spend their time smoking, crying, and touching each other in the gender neutral bathroom. After a trans-senior conceives a baby despite her being a virgin, the adolescents are made to reassess their priorities, friendships, and what safety means to them.

Notes on Casting
Given the nature of the play, we aim to create an explicitly queer environment in the name of queer values, such as open lines of communication, the safety and security of exploration, and the unabashed acceptance of everyone involved.

Character Descriptions

Alex (they/them): “Loves everybody desperately, Sees the best in almost everybody, high school senior”
Seeking a non-binary performer to play between the ages of 17-18
They are a character of many contradictions, extremely trusting and resentful,
sure of themselves, unsure of their place in the world, like a strong mast on a
rickety ship. Even though they feel like they don’t know much, everyone goes to
them for advice.

Jacques (he/him): “A jock, openly gay, closeted homophobe, high school senior”
Seeking a performer to play between the ages of 17-18
Jacques is a jock with a gentle soul. He is in a somewhat one-sided relationship
with Jack. His understanding of himself is often in flux, as he often feels like he is
little more than his body. He doesn’t want to be gay, he just wants to be a man
who f**ks other men.

Jack (he/him): “Also a jock, loves sex, doesn’t see gender, young, dumb, full of cum, high school senior”
Seeking a performer to play between the ages of 17-18
Jack is a fun and voracious sporty ball of energy, but his unending hedonism often
involves or invokes pain in those around him. He is so caught up in his bottomless
libido that he can no longer distinguish between emotional and physical
relationships.

Minnie (she/her): “Deals whatever you need, grew out of that whole God phase, high school senior”
Seeking a performer to play between the ages of 17-18
Minnie is the quintessential child of divorce, trying to figure out her own identity separate from the one her
parents set out for her. She is the popular kid, the cool drug dealer, and she wants everyone to forget what she
was like before high school.

Nat (she/her): “A virgin and pregnant, high school senior”
Seeking a trans-femme performer to play between the ages of 17-18
While she prefers sticking to the periphery, Nat finds herself in the centre of the
rumour mill for the second time throughout her high school career. She is fiercely
loyal and hopeful, but naïve. She is most the self assured of all her peers, and is
waiting for everyone else to catch up.

Cody (he/him): “Nebbish little creep, probably definitely watches too much porn, high school senior”
Seeking a performer to play between the ages of 17-18
Cody is a shy and anxious kid, made worse by his over-bearing mother. Cody is
constantly looking for ways to find pleasure since it is so absent in his day to day
life. The other students make him feel unsafe, a sense which he returns to them in
kind.

Tory (he/him): “Janitor, extremely protective of the students, grieving and has been for a long time”
Seeking a performer to play between the ages of 40-50
Tory is the fly on the fall janitor who spends his days watching the students grow
and learn. Following the loss of the two great loves of his life, he wonders if he’ll
ever feel held again. He handles his pain with humour and care, and passes that
care to the next generation.
