SEEKING:

MARIE, 24 but everyone thinks she’s 22, white. She doesn’t really know where she fits in this book club or in this world. On the periphery of normality looking in at the confident ones and testing herself amongst them.

GIL, 23, black. She is dating Milo and under his spell, enjoying the bliss of young love. However, Gil won’t be pushed around when she feels undermined. She’s especially protective of her Marie who lives with her and relies on her.

BILL, 37, black. Holds a nervous disposition, an introvert, but wishes he wasn’t. Bill’s good hearted and well- intentioned but struggles with relationships. He finds that modern social cues are just there to embarrass him.

MILO, 22, white. Milo is from old money and has a confidence that unintentionally places his privilege as a badge on his chest. He believes he is judged for this badge too easily. He is dating Gil, but secretly worries that she might be keeping him from achieving larger things in life. CAST.

ALICE, 22, white. Larger than the others, she hunts for those who want to pass judgement on her size, gender or sexuality. Alice often feels uncomfortable, but hides behind a fiery exterior that protects such insecurities.

KEITH, 22, black. A scholarship boy at Milo’s (high) fee-paying school, Keith has felt the injustice of being a ‘have-not’ around many ‘haves’. He holds an attitude that portrays the idea that he doesn’t care what others think of him which can sometimes be seen as hard and cold. He enjoys indulging in the moments when the book club turns crude.
