Role # 2 Sergeant Carlino
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Carlino is a small-time grifter. He is a coarse, uneducated man who isn’t bothered by much of a conscience. He lives from day to day just trying to survive in a world in which is never the sharpest guy in the room, whatever room he’s in. He’s not a cruel or sadistic person, but he does what he has to do in order to survive without a lot of dithering about right or wrong. He is a fairly good con man, although he’s never the brains behind any scheme – but he has an air of authority and that makes him a natural for impersonating police officers.

Role # 4 Susy Hendrix
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Susy is a vivacious young woman who was blinded in a car accident a year ago. Possessed of a very strong will, she decided not long after her accident that she would not let it ruin her life. She met Sam a few months after the accident and was drawn to his refusal to see her as handicapped. His unsentimental way of dealing with her blindness gives her strength, and she loves him for it.

Role # 5 Sam Hendrix
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Sam is a tough ex-marine and a man who has lifted himself up by his own bootstraps. He is intelligent, but not an intellectual. He’s a practical man, not a dreamer or a ditherer. Having created a decent life for himself out of nothing, he is content; he never wallows in sentiment and, while he has a very sensitive side, he is not comfortable showing it, even to Susy.

Role # 6 Gloria
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Gloria is at that very awkward age between childhood and adolescence. She is a bright child and has a good heart, but her home life is fairly rough (her mother is undependable and her father abandoned the family not long ago) and she’s terribly uncomfortable in her body. Gloria wants desperately to be seen like a young woman – but she is very much still mired in childhood. She can be very petty and given to tantrums, and she has a vague crush on Sam which makes her jealous of Susy. Like most immature people in such a situation, she blames Susy for “coming between” her and Sam.
