Harry, a melancholy loner who communicates through a puppet, sets out to understand why his girlfriend is leaving him. He has to hurry, though, because his single-occupant spaceship is blasting off to the moon at midnight.
Harry (Male / 27-37 / Caucasian)
A man who communicates through a puppet. The quirk is metaphorical, not literal, a means to symbolize that he does not feel human. The reason: he has never been in love. Harry is an astronaut who struggles to connect with other people and prefers to float around in outer space by himself.
Technical: The character’s dialogue is spoken by the actor and the puppet in synchrony, and his actions performed in partnership. Puppetry or ventriloquism experience preferred but not required. Actor must be comfortable with an on set intimacy scene and partial nudity (undergarments).
Carl (Male / 35+ / Open Ethnicity)
A grumpy musician who probably smells like whiskey. Carl is also a dog.
Technical: Actor must be comfortable with a full face prosthetic, hair laying, and contact lenses; must have no allergies to latex or spirit gum. Saxophone experience preferred but not required.
Dear Susan (Female / 65+ / Open Ethnicity)
An elderly newspaper advice columnist who never moved on from her first love: a sailor lost at sea.
