Character Breakdown:

Male, 40s-50’s – A father to a teenage daughter who he loves but who he’s growing apart from. Small town politician in North Carolina. Charming but not oily. Authentic and polite. Conservative but modern. He’s sad when no one is looking. Ed ran for office because he genuinely wants to help people, but the job is eating away at his optimism.

Female, 19 – College freshman full of new ideas, she thinks she understands the world. Overweight and self-conscious about it. Sweet, smart and funny. She admires her father and hates disappointing him. She keeps secrets.

(Already cast) – Female, 40’s – Miriam has cerebral palsy. Public school teacher from New York City. Visiting north Carolina for a few weeks. She keeps her walls up and expects people to disappoint her. She stays busy to keep from getting overwhelmed by it all. Very smart, with a sardonic sense of humor. Getting near the end of her rope.

Theater Breaking Through Barriers is a integrated company comprised of actors with and without disabilities and the only professional Off-Broadway theater company dedicated to advancing writers and actors with disabilities and changing the image of disability from dependence to independence.
