GOPHER: Male | Any Ethnicity | Age: 25 - 45 | Role Type: Supporting
This is a mythical character, very Alice-in-Wonderland-ish, as he is part animal (gopher) and part male. He falls in love with the leading lady's daughter, who proves to be just as dynamic as her mother but also a little contradictory and vulnerable. Gopher needs to be played by an actor who is totally willing to "go with the flow" and play a character that is complex and rich and overflowing with unfulfilled romantic longings. These longings are complicated by the fact that he is not fully "human" and is self-conscious of this point. A wonderful character for an actor who wants to step away from the norm.

REEMA: Female | Any Ethnicity | Age: 25 - 45 | Role Type: Supporting
Reema is a gum-cracking whore who submits immediately to the leading lady's warmth and compassion, in a single scene which truly allows her to show all of herself. She is much more than she initially appears to be, and is painfully aware of the crumbling system that turns so many people into pitiful street characters. Oddly enough, however, there is no strong language or sexual aspect to this character or scene, as all of the language in this piece is written on a higher level and never descends into vulgarity or trash-talk.

DEPUTY HARLAN: Male | Any Ethnicity | Age: 35 - 45 | Role Type: Supporting
A bit cynical, Deputy Harlan does not necessarily share the leading lady's compassion for those who have been incarcerated. However, even he is taken by her flair for seeing the goodness in others and engaging with people who are ordinarily shoved aside by society and even neglected. The one scene between him and the leading lady is truly remarkable and reveals a lot about both characters as well as society as a whole - in all its devastating decadence.

SHAZZA: Female | Caucasian, Multi-Ethnic | Age: 50 - 70 | Role Type: Leading
The main character/title character. A strong female character whose strength co-exists harmoniously with her femininity. As such, Shazza is a woman who is disgusted with the prison system, and quits her job as the warden of the prison in which she was situated for a long time. Afterwards, she finds herself taking on a warden-like role in the most bizarre of ways, thus embarking on a thrilling journey of self-discovery which includes a lot of physicality: climbing, jigging, Lucy-style physical comedy acts, and so on. She's a very complex character, her dialogue is extremely revealing and poetic. She is a beautiful woman, sexually alive yet also almost saintly in her capacity for feeling and commiseration. She is the ideal character for an actress who is itching to show the many sides of her own self.

SIDNEY: Male | Any Ethnicity | Age: 50 - 70 | Role Type: Supporting
Sidney is the head of the prison in which the main character has worked for a long time. He has always harbored a secret fondness for her, especially after she leaves her cushy job and embarks on a journey which displays her courage, determination, and compassion as never before. He is a mixed-up character with a lot of contradictory impulses and weaves in and out of the story due to his increasing infatuation with the dynamic leading lady. A bit pathetic, he is not accustomed to getting what he wants in the area of love and romance, and this informs all of his actions.
