9 roles

MiaFemale19-28 y.o.All ethnicities

(Lead). Mia is nice and cool, goofy, artistic, and overall not a super serious person. She is the drummer for her band with her friend Maddy who she lives with. She has good friends and likes to party and stuff like that. When she is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and loses her ability to walk and talk normally, she is seemingly unaffected, or at least not in the way most would expect. Her general attitude toward it is that of nihilism and humor.

MaddyBoth genders19-25 y.o.All ethnicities

(Lead/supporting). The best friend of the main character. Shares similar outlook on things and is able to keep things light and support her friend in a way that’s not mushy but is sort of more unspoken. Also, Maddy is the lead guitarist/singer in their band. You don’t have to actually do either of those things, but you get the sort of look that is invoked. They live together so they are able to have fun and go out and be silly and play music.

DadMale40-60 y.o.White / Caucasian

(Lead/supporting). Mia’s father. He LOVES her to death truly. She does not have a mom in her life anymore & she was abusive to Mia so he sort of makes up for it now with all of the love & attention he is able to give. Mia is hospitalized for not being able to walk or talk due to multiple sclerosis complications so he is along with her to support her in every way. He feeds her since she can’t pick up a fork herself, he walks her around in her wheelchair, tries to make her laugh.

Dr. FMale40-60 y.o.All ethnicities

(Supporting). Dr. F gives Mia her diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. He is lighthearted (or trying to be) while delivering this news and makes a few dad jokes in the process. He’s warm, gentle, and empathetic, but does not dwell on the horrible news.

Dr. Stupid F#*kMale32-42 y.o.All ethnicities

(name subject to change), (Supporting). After being hospitalized for not being able to walk or talk due to multiple sclerosis complications, Mia’s doctor (Dr. Stupid F#*k) is coming into their hospital room to discuss the prognosis and how to get Mia walking/talking again.

Dr. JeanFemale40-55 y.o.All ethnicities

(Supporting). Dr. Jean is a physical therapist. She is down to earth but a little bit of a boomer as the kids say. She’s pretty honest about the fact that she kind of just going along for the ride and doesn’t have a bunch of stuff very planned out.

JessicaFemale24-35 y.o.All ethnicities

(Supporting). Jessica is the assistant to Mia’s physical therapist, Jean. She is very very sweet and wants to help in any way she can.

TanyaFemale35-50 y.o.White / Caucasian Other

(Supporting). Caucasian, multi ethnic appearance. Mia’s aunt Tanya. Since Mia is unable to speak normally due to her multiple sclerosis complications, she talks very slow and kind of stroke-like, so Tanya thinks that she can’t hear her normally. Kinda how people talk to people who don’t speak English.

RyanMale21-28 y.o.All ethnicities

(Supporting). Ryan is a guy that Mia met on tinder and has just slept over her house the first night they met. When they wake up in the morning, Mia is having some insane medical thing happen and she sounds like she’s having a stroke and can’t speak normally.
