ZOEY’S PERFECT WEDDING
By Matthew Lopez (January 19-February 25)

RACHEL, female, early 30’s, Caucasian; College best friend of the bride. An elegant pit bull: strong, ruthless and opinionated, sometimes to the point of alienating. Successful wedding planner, impeccable taste, resourceful and creative. Sharp, cutting sense of humor.

CHARLIE, male, early 30’s, any ethnicity; Rachel’s husband. Former musician who put aside his dreams to be grow up and be a ‘responsible adult.’ Handsome guy, but about 15 lbs heavier than he used to be. At this point, a bit sad, a bit lonely, quietly full of regret that he hasn’t even fully admitted to himself yet. Seemingly unremarkable, but formerly vibrant passionate guy.

SAMMY, male, early/mid 30’s, any ethnicity; Friend of the bride. Dashing and handsome, sophisticated and highly successful. A prankster and a charmer, exudes confidence and sex. Promiscuous and emotionally guarded, navigating real love and vulnerability for the first time.

ZOEY, female, early 30’s, any ethnicity; The bride. Warm, open-hearted and accessible. Grounded, sensible and smart. Level-headed and socially graceful until she absolutely can’t be. A school teacher, raised upper middle class but now a bit more working class and pragmatic than her college friends.

MISSY, female, early 20’s, any ethnicity; The wedding planner and Zoey’s cousin. Guileless, means well, but inexperienced and in over her head headless chicken. Bit lost, searching for direction in her life and still discovering/defining who she is.

DJ, male, mid 20’s, Latino; A DJ. All swagger and charm, unencumbered by insecurity or self-doubt. Fiercely independent thinker who forges his own path.
