Company: Lucky Number 13 Studios, Studio C

Dates: August 2021 

Location: Baltimore, MD

Union: Non-Union, SAG 


Ellen: Female (60-ish) – Stubborn farmer's wife. Suffering with Dementia, not wanting to accept it. Once Ellen sets her mind to something, there is no stopping her. But she's slowly losing her mind... Buried deep in her grey-matter are traumatic losses from her past. She misses her loved ones. Typical Mid-West American working class. Bible reader (Catholic). Lives the simple/country life. Alone…

Rachel: Female (30-35) – Compassionate Travelling Physician. Grown-Up daughter to Ellen. Competent, mature, dedicated to her job. But there is a darkness underneath - A distant guilt and regret comes up from time to time, especially regarding relationships with her parents in the past. Busy career-girl. Always on the road. Trying to be a better version of herself

Singleton. Willing soul - Mike has always stepped up to do what's best for his family. Whenever Mike is around, things seem a little bit better. He's undervalued.

Mike's Colleague: Male (35-45) – Think that guy in the cubicle opposite who never pulls his weight and is always loitering around and being annoying. Nepotism can be the only reason he's employed. Face you wanna punch – but you don't.
