Synopsis: 
JAMES returns to his small town home after being away at university for several years to reconnect with his friends following the death of his best friend, Aleks. Because he has been away by himself, he has not had the chance to grieve, but all of his friends have, leaving James to play catch-up. The story will bounce between past and present as the friends sit around a dinner table and reminisce about the good old days, which helps James move through the five stages of grief. During this dinner, James learns about the specifics of Aleks’ death, and questions if his moving to the big city could have played a role in his friend’s demise.

Audition Date(s): 
January 18th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th
Character 1 Name: 
JAMES
Character 1 Age: 
18-26
Character 1 Description: 
James is a closed off, but well meaning, small town guy that has since adapted to city life. He gets a feeling of nostalgia coming back to his hometown, but also a sense that he doesn’t really belong there anymore. James had not talked to Aleks for several years since he moved away because of a fight they had. He feels guilty about not speaking to Aleks, and cannot get the memory of their fight out of his head. He begins the short in the denial stages of grief, whereas all of his other friends have had time to progress through to acceptance. During the dinner, as they all discuss Aleks and their memories, James progresses through the 5 stages of grief until he finally comes to terms with his friend’s death.
Character 2 Age: 
18-26
Character 2 Name: 
LILY
Character 2 Description: 
Lily is the soft spoken, sweet, younger sister of Aleks. Lily is the host of the dinner, and is doing her best to make sure everyone is comfortable and having a good time. Lily can sense something is off about James and is constantly trying to give little pushes to get him to open up. She understands the friendship that Aleks and James had possibly more than they did themselves.
Character 3 Name: 
ALEKS
Character 3 Age: 
18-26
Character 3 Description: 
Aleks is an artsy, angsty young adult driven to move out on his own because of his strenuous relationship with his father, and will do anything in order to so. Aleks is a bit of a pothead, and loves listening to rock music on his record player more than almost anything else. When James moved away to the city, he bailed on the plans he and Aleks had to move out together, which caused a rift in their friendship. Aleks was forced to follow in his father’s footsteps to join their small town’s big industry: logging.
Character 4 Name: 
PARKER
Character 4 Age: 
18-26
Character 4 Description: 
Parker is upbeat and jokey, sharply contrasting the opposing personality of James. Parker is always attempting to lighten the mood. Parker understands that James has been busy in the city and doesn’t hold it against him that he hasn’t kept in touch.
Character 5 Name: 
CODY
Character 5 Age: 
18-26
Character 5 Description: 
Cody is a very straight-to-the-point person, not afraid to say what needs to be said. Cody is a bit more annoyed with James for not keeping in touch, and lets it be known with a few jabs here and there, but nothing too serious.
Additional Characters: 

[ALEKS’S DAD] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 40-50]
Aleks’s Dad is a retired lumberjack. Strong, hairy, and a bit of a mean drunk. This will be a very minor, but very impactful role in the short.

Shoot / Perf. Date(s):
