5 roles

SusanFemale25-35 y.o.All ethnicities

Lead. Blinded in an automobile accident a year and a half ago, Susan, a vivacious and capable woman. She is fierce and strong yet frightened and at odds with the world. She is no shrinking violet. She can hold her own despite her handicap. Visually impaired actors who can handle the intensity of the action sequences required for the role are encouraged to audition.

RoatMale30-50 y.o.All ethnicities

Lead. A master criminal with no empathy for anyone. Like many sociopaths, he is highly intelligent and manipulates people with ease. Though he’s offbeat, he’s not eccentric. He’s consistently unfazed by his circumstances, and never takes anyone, including himself, too seriously. He’d almost be charming if he wasn’t also a sadistic murderer. Character work is key. Also must be comfortable with intense stage physicality.

MikeMale30-49 y.o.All ethnicities

Lead. A smart and charismatic. Fit, suave, tough, though not without a relatively good moral compass. He’s a skeptic, possibly even a cynic, but he does maintain a mild admiration for Susy and her unwavering strength.

CarlinoMale30-49 y.o.All ethnicities

Supporting. A small-time grifter. He’s coarse, a bit uneducated, with a very flexible code of ethics. His pride is often challenged which frequently leads to a souring of his attitude.

SamMale30-39 y.o.All ethnicities

Supporting. An ex-marine with a deep love of photography and his wife, Susy. Being so practical and forward-thinking, he’s determined that Susy should have a life of independence despite her lack of sight. He may be a little fixated on his work at times but he’s still a good man.
