SEEKING TALENT
THE BROTHERS

DEAN (9)- A good-natured, soulful, watchful, empathetic boy. Yet, tough, strong and capable of great rage and violence.

RICKY (10)- Dean’s older brother. Brash, energetic, charismatic. A leader.

DAVID (12)- Dean’s older brother. Cerebral, superior, self-confident.

BEAU (15)- Dean’s oldest brother. Carries a simmering anger he doesn’t understand or control. Defiant, brooding, prone to violence.

THEIR PARENTS

LYNN (mid 30s)- Tough, no-nonsense, kind-hearted and caring. She is a lioness regarding her family.

BILL (mid to late 30’s)- A physically imposing figure. Outwardly, the alpha male. Inwardly, wrestling with fear of confrontation and the creeping doubt that he is not worthy of his family’s admiration.

THE NEIGHBORS

RIORDAN (7)- A friendly, innocent boy. Craves the friendship of the neighboring boys. Yet, protective of his family and his vicious dog.

MAY (5, but thinks she’s 35). Riordan’s sister. Unafraid of anything. A social being.

THEIR PARENTS

BARBIE (late 20’s, early 30’s)- Gentle. Reasonable. She fights to conquer her timid nature and exude strength. She often wins.

TIM (late 20’s, early 30’s)- A force of nature. Reactive. Unreasoning. Governed by unadulterated primal instinct.
