Synopsis: Highly anxious Karen is invited to a decadent outdoor lunch with her seemingly friendly co-workers. They try to convince her to add a peculiar event to a party they are throwing.
It is a dark drama with elements of magical realism (inspired by the work of David Lynch and David Fincher).
KAREN- Rate- $175.00 per day (2 days of work) (agents take from this rate)
female, 30s-50s –
Stumbles onto a suspicious fine dining lunch with her anxiety flaring. She does her best to remain poised.
MARCUS, – Rate- $150.00 per day (2 days of work) (agents take from this rate)
male, black, mid 20s – early 30s
Tactful but soft. Karen’s co-worker that wants her to be truthful and cut through the noise of Karen’s deflecting.
Here is the moodboard they conveys the visual style of the film: https://pin.it/4eypwcs3hjwj3g
Karen side: her social anxiety is flaring up then releases a profane, ugly, caged (by her anxiety) rant in protest rather than agree to the event. The event they want her to add is bringing in penguins to an executive yacht party. She sees it as just a grotesque, callous display of wealth. She does not want to have them to be there but she will compromise with making sure the penguins are taken care of (with cooling areas, ACs, etc). But her compromise is not looking good to them and her anxiety just gets worse. It is like she afraid to shout because they might do something to her so she’s restrained in her monologue.
Marcus side: he is tactful but soft. Karen’s co-worker that wants her to be truthful and cut through the noise of Karen’s deflecting. He is the anchor of reason in the group. If you have any question please let me know. The side begins with Karen’s part to provide more context. You only need to record yourself reading for Marcus’ part.
Karen already knows what they want her to roll over and allow the penguin event to happen when she shows up but they need her to go with it. Karen believes the reason they’re having the lunch party is to honeypot her into getting in line.
