SEEKING TALENT
Male Lead: early-mid twenties. Slight build, medium height(5’7”-5’10”) not overly athletic. Mid-west/oklahoma accent ideal.

Female Lead: late-teens/early twenties. long-hair, blond/brown ideal. Oklahoma/midwest accent preferred.

ARLIE BOON is a man in his mid-to-late twenties. He’s slightly built, more “average” than athletic. He was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and hasn’t seen much of the world beyond it. Introspective and cautious, Arlie sometimes has difficulty expressing himself, and since he lost his dead-end job at a warehouse drug store and found his wife in bed with her boss, he’s been drinking too much, too. On the surface he’s frequently passive, but he has a fiery anger inside over how life has been treating him lately. Now he’s searching listlessly for a new job, a new girl, and a new life. When he meets topless dancer Naomi and her drug kingpin boyfriend, he may have found all three.

NAOMI HEWITT is a woman in her early twenties. She’s a free-spirited topless dancer with a hippie idealism drawn heavily from ‘60s counterculture. She’s also well-spoken, political, and more worldly than Arlie; her dream is to escape the black hole of the Midwest rural life she grew up in. When she and her drug kingpin meet Arlie, they sense in him a kindred spirit who might share their revulsion at mainstream society and culture—and that he’s someone they might use to their own advantage.
