JULES: Mid-20s, she/her/hers, multi-media stop motion video artist with a prickly exterior and marshmallowy center. Don’t call her cute.

PANDA: Like 5 in human years, gender irrelevant, a black and white cat. Very cute, but this is also irrelevant.

WILLA: Early 30s, she/her/hers, Jules’ older sister, 6 months pregnant at the start of the play, a teacher ready for summer vacation, genuinely doing her best all the damn time and it’s exhausting.

PETE: Late 30s, he/him/his, nature photographer/videographer, community college instructor, and Philly-accented free-spirit.

We are also seeking understudies for all roles.
