Character descriptions are below direct from the Denizen:
Lynx, Male identifying, about 30, any ethnicity. Former bad boy turned laid back guy. Drifter. Mysterious to the point of nausea. Can’t tell a lie but very uncertain of the actual truth. Magnetic and attractive. Lights up a room. Smooth talking, hiding something. Never apologizes.
Tess, Female identifying, about 30, any ethnicity. Could have been a very responsible adult. Walks dogs. The voice of reason, but with a very short threshold. Long suffering and hard drinking. Interrogates like an attorney. Lost hope. Doesn’t trust, craves stability, accustomed to losing.
Jordan, Male identifying, about 30, any ethnicity. Late bloomer. Resident tag along. Suddenly quick witted. Former jetsetter with wings recently clipped. Works at Groupon. Able to lift other people up even though he’s constantly grounded. Puppy dog from The Shelter. Trapped and desperate for escape.
Cassandra, Female identifying, about 30, any ethnicity. The only actual adult. Finally found out what’s up in life and will take the risk, damn the consequence. Knows exactly what’s wrong with everybody else. Would rather hear a lie than accept the truth.
Please note: Actors must be comfortable with adult language, strong sexual content and nudity.
