Character Breakdown:

CHARLIE (25 to 35) - photographer and father, is a neurotic, work obsessed individual, who at first glance appears normal. Charlie has developed a nervous eye twitch over time, occurring because he was teased and tormented as a child.

THE BOSS (25 to 45) – a manipulative, unsympathetic individual, who depends on his employees to get his work done for him.

THERAPIST (25 to 35) - a mysterious yet professional, sexy woman with tied back
hair and a tweed suit. When she speaks, you listen.

SCHOOLMATE #1 (10 to 14) – a harmless, care free young boy. Always has good intentions, but can be a bit clumsy at times.

BULLY #1 (10 to 14) - torments and teases Charlie. Can draw attention to someone quickly if they do something to embarrass themselves.

FATHER (40 to 50) – sadistic and over the top, the father is a figment of Charlie’s imagination. Moustache or beard appropriate.

GIRLFRIEND #1 (18 to 28) - a plain Jane, cute college student, who reads a menu across the table.

GIRLFRIEND #2 (18 to 28) - An older looking woman who seems to hold much more experience in all aspects of life than Charlie.

GIRLFRIEND #3 (18 to 28) – a somewhat ditsy young blonde, who is grossed out and asks Charlie about his irregular twitch.

GIRLFRIEND #4 (18 to 28) – an attractive, chatty, picky woman, who can talk your ear off if you let her, and would not know when to stop.

ANGE (25 to 35) – the mother of Charlie’s daughter Molly, who appears pregnant and elegant. No dialogue involved.

MOLLY (5 to 10) – young daughter of Charlie, innocent and fair. Dark hair and a loving smile.
