Cast of Characters


FEMALE ROLES

JANE - 20s, female
LINES  1 - (Angry, scared) If you need to run away from your problems, I won't stop you. I'm getting out and checking on him. And I'm calling 9-1-1.

2.  (Confused, panicking) Why can't I let go of you? Why can't I drop you or throw you?

9-1-1 OPERATOR - Seasoned and compassionate... in a business where she's heard it all, still tries to be human
LINE - You're welcome. (beat) Oh, and from one woman who doesn't know how to pick 'em to another... sorry about your night.

MALE ROLES

TYLER - 20s
LINES  1 - (He's an angry drunk) I asked you to tell me a station -- not find it for me. I thought we settled how to listen to me last week with the belt. (almost to himself) Women. (Back to Jane) Like I need you to dial a station for me?

2 - (apologetic) Listen, baby. You know how I get sometimes when I drink a little too much...     

SHERIFF DANIELS 
LINE - (Seething) I made you Deputy. The town didn't like that; I stuck up for you.

DEPUTY GRAVES
LINE - (confused) Ma'am, why are you touching his face? (Beat, nervous) What's happening to him?


EITHER GENDER

EIGHTBALL - is something of an alien object. Is calm, cool... think HAL (2001).

LINE - The name "Tom" isn't the ONLY thing they share. Ask about the Sheriff's wife.
