Setting:
Parking lot in small-town East Texas

Roles:

Wendy (16-17) (or early 20’s if can pass for a teenager)
Wendy is a good-natured high school sophomore working her first job at Mr. Cheese E. McGuffy’s (a Chuck E. Cheese-esque kids’ arcade). Well-mannered and even-tempered, Wendy doesn’t like conflict but she’s also not one to boss around.

Carol Ann (60+)
Carol Ann has lived in this small East Texas town her whole life and has established herself as a pillar of the community. Married to “Pastor Bill” of the First Baptist Church, Carol Ann has a certain reputation to uphold and she expects others to regard her with a great deal of respect. She comes across to most as sickeningly sweet- but underneath this saccharine facade lies a darkness and unhinged anger that Wendy accidentally unveils.

Officer Jerry Perkins (30+)
An off-duty police officer who witnesses the altercation and intervenes. He’s a devoted father and husband who cares a lot about his community. He wants to believe the best in people, but his trusting nature can keep him from seeing people the way they truly are.
