SHORT SYNOPSIS:  

A high-octane verbal cage match about love, fidelity and misplaced haberdashery. Struggles with addiction, friendship, love, and the challenges of adulthood are at the center of the story. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He’s also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie’s too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor. He’s married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie. And then there’s Julio, Jackie’s cousin…a stand-up, “stand by me” kind of guy.

CASTING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:

JACKIE (M, Late 20s – 35, Latinx) Recovering alcoholic, recently released from prison, volatile and puppy-dog vulnerable, tough-talking bravado, self-destructive.

VICTORIA (F, Late 20s – 35, Open Ethnicity) Jackie’s wife; the bitter and disaffected wife of Ralph D, who–quite incidentally–is deeply attracted to Jackie; she’s hot-blooded and passionate, but deeply frustrated with the state of her life.

COUSIN JULIO (M, Late 20s, Latinx) Fastidious, effeminate, health nut, has a great body, great sense of humor.

VERONICA (F, Late 20s, Latinx) Foul-mouthed and tender-hearted, short fuse, ballsy, feisty, complex, sexy.

RALPH D. (M, 30 – 45, African-American) Wisecracking, slick talking, calculatingly charming, cocky, straightforward, overly self-confident, fast-talking scamster.
