Characters for The Boardroom

PLAYS IT SAFE COLLIN- (M, early to late 20s to play college age) Again all characters are the personification of an aspect of Collin's personality. Plays It Safe is a peace keeper. Never one to really take a stand. Tends to feel out the room before making a decisions. That friend of yours who always wants to "open things up for discussion" then speaks last and ends up agreeing with the majority.

TORTURED ARTIST COLLIN- (M, early to late 20s to play college age) Again all characters are the personification of an aspect of Collin's personality. Tortured Artist wears all black. He reads Nietzsche and Poe religiously. The kind of kid who will spend hours telling you why The Joker is actually the hero of The Dark Night. He also probably has a pet black widow spider in his dorm room, and is regularly complaining about why his roommate can't seem to see its beauty.

SELF DOUBT COLLIN- (M, early to late 20s to play college age) Again all characters are the personification of an aspect of Collin's personality. Self Doubt was barely able to get out of bed because what's the point. He's ugly. He's fat. He's annoying. And oh my god why are you even reading this character description, those other ones are so much more clever.

BRO COLLIN- (M, early to late 20s to play college age) Again all characters are the personification of an aspect of Collin's personality. Bro. What's sicker than a popped-collar-polo and a pair of aviators? 2 popped-collar-polos and 3 pairs of aviators. Sick tight, bro.

VOICE OF REASON COLLIN (F, early to late 20s to play college age) Again all characters are the personification of an aspect of Collin's personality. Voice of Reason is that small voice in your head that is constantly rolling its eyes at everything you do. Of course you say you'll listen next time, but Voice of Reason rolls her eyes at that, too because she knows you won't.

"HOW TO FLIRT"
LOGLINE: According to Jamie, all physical contact is flirting... right?

SHOOTS MONDAY, NOV 27th 9am-4pm
Written and Directed by: Laura Copan
After writing and producing sketch comedy in college, Copan now plans to write comedy for film and TV. Also a poet, she has been published in various magazines and reviews including; The Woove, VT Review, and To Earth From Venus. See https://vimeo.com/lauracopan for her short films (some made for fun, some made in undergrad, and one made at LMU).

Characters for How to Flirt

JAMIE: (F, open to all ages, 40s preferred) awkward, skittish like a cat, overthinks everything. If she went to Hogwarts, she'd be in Ravenclaw.

MAX: (M, 20s) happy-go-lucky, oblivious. Has no hidden agenda; just a friendly human.

ELIZABETH: (F, 20) Max’s girlfriend. Not a speaking role.

DRAKE: (M, 20s) Just wants to make a simple purchase at the convenience store. Not a speaking role.
