Talents Needed for "Please Join Us at the Table" - Dark Comedy
NON UNION / UNPAID A DARK COMEDY: A lonely, newly-widowed father is randomly invited to a Christmas party by older socialite parents. Soon, he finds out that it is not his friendship that they're after.
Above all, Carson wants to provide for his young daughter, and begin the transition from grief to moving on. While he is a bit ditzy, he is someone who thinks through big decisions for hours, and most often sides with the majority on group decisions. Carson is eager to find community, and can therefore come off as bit of a pushover.
Hoity-toity old money socialite running for President of the PTA at Carson's private school. Feels like a bit of a failure, and rather than putting energy towards his daughter, wants to climb further up the social ladder.
Obsessed, perhaps more than Charles, with being on top of the adult world. Often uses Charles as a puppet to achieve her goals. Looks down her nose at just about everything except her daughter.
Sweaty, beady-eyed lackey. Charles' pick for Treasurer of the PTA. Completely under the whim of Ashley and Charles, and lacks any moral compass whatsoever. Willing to do whatever it takes, in theory, to secure the Treasurer Nomination. As power hungry as Charles, but lacks his charisma.
