Student One Act Auditions
In the year 2020, Elle gives her emotionally distant girlfriend Grace a tarot card reading, in order
to determine what’ll happen to Grace when the apocalypse, a future haunting Grace’s dreams,
GRACE- Female, 20s, any ethnicity. Anxious about the future, became aloof and emotionally
distant in order to protect herself mentally. Her dreams seemingly predict a great change within
the world (like 2020), or they just reflect her emotional state.
ELLE- Female, 20s, any ethnicity. Grace’s girlfriend. Very outgoing, enjoys giving tarot card
readings to people. Tries not to think about how distant Grace has been.
The roles of Elle and Grace can be genderbent so that the relationship is between two gay men,
or between two non binary individuals, instead of two lesbian women.
A normal conversation spirals into a nonsensical fever dream as one friend realizes he’s not an important member of the group.

Howard — Early 20s. Any race. Mimi's brother and Steven's childhood friend-turned-stoner bud. He never really fit in.

Katy Sugar: A woman in her late 20's/early 30's. Is very good at pretending she's not scared. Less fanciful, just as flirty.

Gould: A man in his mid-20's. New face on the block, he's made his mark on the underground by coming out of the gate swinging, AKA killing a metric ton of his competition.

Two young men break into a supposedly empty, isolated
vacation home in search of quick thrills and easy thrifts,
but what they find is more than either of them asked for.
Ryan 21. Canadian. Reckless and easily bored. The type to skip game instructions and then get angry when he doesn't know how to do something. Either thinks he's invincible or that everything is just a bit of a simulation. Craves the adrenaline rush of a good scare paired with a bit of danger, even more so when subjecting someone else to it. Has a very soft punk style going on, with a large leather jacket.
Ben/Benjamin 20. Asian American. A bit obsessed with antiques, but mainly tech and woodwork. Allergic to failure, so he either puts all of his focus into one thing or rejects the notion to try. Refuses to go anywhere alone, for fear of being a loser. Reckless as well, but not as bad when around Ryan. Hates horror, but puts on a brave face so as to not encourage more jump-scares from his friend. No matter how cold, he refuses to zip-up his new, blue puffy down vest.
