Character Descriptions: 2M 3W
Kimberly: Actress age 50 – 60’s plus is required for this role. Kimberly is a teenage girl with an aging disease who struggles to be understood and find happiness & normalcy in a family that thrives on chaos and dysfunction. Elements of dark teenage angst with a wicked sharp tongue.
Buddy: Mid 30’s – 40’s Kimberly’s father, alcoholic, generally unreliable but well meaning who only wants what’s best for Kim, overly protective of her. Proverbial loser with a heart of gold.
Jeff: A genuinely curious teenage boy, you might say nerdy. Kimberly’s love interest. Think Sheldon Cooper with better social skills. Actor cast for this role does not necessarily need to be a teenager but should be able to pass for one.
Pattie: Mid 30’s – 40’s Kimberly’s mother. Foul-mouthed, brash. Thinks she’s dying and is pregnant with her second child. Her hypochondria and short temper serve at least in part as protection against the inevitability of Kimberly’s life expectancy.
Debra: Mid 30’s – 40’s Kimberly’s aunt, Pattie’s sister. Adventurous, spontaneous. She’s often homeless. When we first encounter her she’s living at the public library, hiding out from the librarians. Con artist, always on the prowl for the next scam. She’ll enlist anyone necessary to make it happen.
