FRANK – PRINCIPAL ROLE – MALE – 44-60 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
LOOK: Traditional, and dresses as such. Bald preferred, but not a requirement. Open Ethnicity.
PERSONALITY: Frank is a middle-aged man who is trying his best to be accepting of all this robot nonsense, but I mean, come on! They’re not even people! They’re robots! When his daughter brings home her robot boyfriend, Frank is pushed wildly out of his comfort zone, struggling to maintain a brave face as this THING eats dinner at his table. It doesn’t help that Frank has read his share of conspiracy theories about these machines and their plans to destroy humanity. How long could he possibly keep civil when his daughter is dating a soulless death-robot?
KEVIN – PRINCIPAL ROLE – MALE – 18-21 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
LOOK: Should have a young/boyish look. Must be clean shaven- no facial hair. You’ll be playing a character younger than your age. Open Ethnicity.
PERSONALITY: Kevin is a young boy who likes to stir things up and watch it all go down. He’s particularly fascinated by the robot his sister has brought home with her, and he has a LOT of questions for him. Kevin isn’t troubled at all by the conflict this robot has introduced to the family. As long as he gets to eat some cake as it all falls apart, he’s happy. He’s a kid! So what if some terrible robot apocalypse happens tonight? He’s gonna live forever!
