At an abandoned motel on a desolate American road, Kate meets with Stine, an interrogator/de-programmer she has hired to kidnap her daughter away from the cult she ran away to four years ago when was 13. After taking away Kate’s cell phone and ID, Stine locks her in the bathroom only to return a short while later with a girl. Kate is released from the bathroom and confronts the girl, telling Stine that the girl is not her daughter. Stine is eventually double-crossed when the girl and Kate team up. Just as Kate is about to escape, she is locked in the room by the girl. Harris McLain, the charismatic cult leader, enters the room and confronts Kate — telling her his plan and that she will die today, by her own daughter’s hand. Things go seriously wrong when Harris underestimates Kate, the girl, and Stine… and when another girl enters the room, Kate will do whatever it takes to get to the truth about her daughter.
This is an edge-of-your-seat thriller with twists, turns, serious subject matter, and strong language. Actors will be required to do physical work on stage, including fights, falls, and drags.
We are only casting the roles listed. All others have been cast. All roles are open ethnicity.
Girl 1 (lead) — Seeking an 18+ actor who can play 17 effectively. Honest, quick to anger, strong (physically and mentally), able to turn emotions and personas on a dime. She loves the cult and will do whatever it takes for it to prosper. She thinks she’s older than she is, but reveals her age when things go wrong. She is not timid, fearful, or brain-washed — she believes in the cult. This is a very physical role, calling for stage fighting, falls, and a body drag. Actor must be able to take fight choreography. Note**May play in rep with Girl 2.
Harris McLain (supporting) — Can play late 30s-early 50s. Charismatic, smooth, but not smarmy at all. He is not to be played as a predator or psychopath. Has the brains and tools to empower a community of people into believing they are the lions of the world. This is a very physical role, calling for stage fighting and falls. Actor must be able to take fight choreography.
Girl 2 (supporting) – Seeking an 18+ actor who can play 17 effectively. Intense. Able to shake off the real world and be fully in her own. Capable of violence. Note**May play in rep with Girl 1.
