Synopsis: Emma is desperate to find love. The only problem is that she’s had one dating disaster after another and she’s ready to give up and just adopt ten cats and be done with it all.

Emma reluctantly goes along despite her better judgement only to find out that sometimes relationships aren’t what they seem to be.

Emma (35-45) has been back on the dating scene for three and a half years now and having no luck in finding so much as a date, never mind the love of her life and she’s starting to wonder if there’s something wrong with her. There’s not, the dating scene just sucks. She’s “casually pretty”, kind and has a heart of gold. If only a great guy would come along and recognize that.
Josh (38-45) is Emma’s best friend. In fact, they’ve been friends since they were kids. He’s cute in that geeky kind of way. All he wants is the best for Emma and is trying to encourage her to not give up on love.
Cal (40’s) is Emma’s gay neighbour and is fond of Emma, although Emma is completely clueless to that fact that he’s gay. Call is an upscale casual, trendy kind of guy, but not pretentious. He’s kind and has a good heart and thinks fondly of Emma. (actor must be comfortable with making out with another guy)
I will need BG for two scenes:
- Passers-by at a park/beach – some casual attire, some in jogging / exercise attire – all ages, ethnicities, body types
- Upscale party or theatre goers – I’m still revising the script and which of these I will be needing will depend the location I end up using. It will either be an upscale party or a theatre (stage) with upscale evening wear
- Silent on camera – Male, attractive, fit, mid-late 30’s – must be comfortable with “making out” with another guy
We will also be looking for additional crew, but will send out a post at a later date.
