Synopsis: Sebastian Kelly finds himself in a precarious position when he is dragged in for questioning with regard to a physical altercation with his girlfriend, Amy. While Sebastian insists that the two have made peace since the incident, an unconvinced Anthony Lorenzo presses onward with his interrogation, and Sebastian soon finds that more is riding on his responses than he ever could have imagined.

Character Breakdowns:

  • Lorenzo – role to be played by Deke Anderson.
  • Sebastian –Lead, Male, age range 30-40 – Remorseful about the incident but fierce in his own defense; aggravated by the nature of Lorenzo’s questions and insinuations.
  • Amy-Supporting, Female, age range 30-40 – Her relationship with Sebastian is an emotional roller coaster: simultaneously adoring of his charm and terrified of his “darker” side.
  • Ken Broussard– Supporting, Male, age range 30-40 – Sebastian’s co-worker; typical salesman: cocksure, condescending, etc.
  • Waitress –Supporting, Female, age range 30-50 – Sassy and short with the customers, she’s clearly held this job for a very long time (perhaps too long).
