To unravel the mysteries of the forcefield, one sister braves the forbidden red zone, only to find herself unable to return to the blue sanctuary.

5 roles

RachaelFemale20-25 y.o.All ethnicities

[Lead. Sister of Leah & Daughter of Emma] - Rachael has a naturally inquisitive nature and is open-minded. She is not afraid to ask difficult questions about their mysteriously protected domain. She is never truly satisfied with the answers the Elders give, so she adventurously leaves the safety of home to get answers on her own and maybe save the world while she’s at it. The actress must be able to portray frustration, skepticism, hope, and fear.

EmanuelMale25-35 y.o.All ethnicities

[Lead] - Born and raised in the Red World, but believes the rumors that a Blue Zone exists. He is a strong person and remains steadfast in his faith. Somehow, he continuously inspires hope within other characters. Physical activity required.

EmmaFemale46-50 y.o.All ethnicities

[Mother of Rachael and Leah] - Though she is caring, she is ultimately a no-nonsense kind of woman. She wants what's best for her home and family and is therefore at odds with Rachael’s quest to find answers and expand their safe haven. Although hard on her daughter, she does show concern once Rachael leaves.

EveFemale25-35 y.o.All ethnicities

Emanuel’s partner. Is doubtful that the Blue Zone exists, but she trusts Emanuel. May even be in love with him. Doesn’t understand a lot of what he talks about, but she follows him regardless until she can’t anymore. Physical Activity required.

ElderMale60-75 y.o.All ethnicities

One of the Elders of the Blue Zone. He is old and wise.. Knowledgeable about the Blue Zone but sworn to a secrecy that Rachael continues to test. Part of him admires that about the girl, and he tells her of a legend that might help her survive the Red World once he realizes there is nothing that will stop her from venturing out.
