MEG (Lead Role): Age Range (20 – 25)
Meg struggles with self doubt and insecurities about who she is and what people think. This constant battle with her inner-self is Meg’s biggest flaw… Last week she went on a date with Shawn and impulse agreed to set up a second date. Though getting out of her comfort zone gave her the sense of fulfillment she was seeking, now that the high has died down she’s on the fence about going again. Tonight that changes though. It’ll be good for her to go out again… maybe it will help her figure out what she wants?
SHAWN (Supporting Role): Age Range (20 – 25)
Shawn’s an honest guy. He’s straight forward with his feelings, and he wishes most people would share this mentality. He took Meg on a date the other week and the two clicked immediately. She’s all he’s been thinking about, and he was ecstatic when she asked HIM to hang out again.
What’s weird is that now that it’s gotten closer to their second date… she’s seeming flaky. Time to play it cool and make her feel comfortable.
