Synopsis

Bobby is Dead-A play about love, lust and getting shot in the head.  A modern-day tale about what happens when the girl you love finally dumps the loser she’s been dating, starts dating a new guy, and you get stuck watching his neurotic sister for the night. Oh, and murder.

Cast

Cast List

Annie is a vapid, self-centered, but not altogether unlikeable.  The script calls for her to be in a scene in bra/panties.  As the author, my point is that she is comfortable parading around in very little in front of Chris, and has no idea of the effect it has on him.  Based on the age/size/shape of the actress, any undergarment will work, as long as it is convincingly sexy.

Bobby is the ex-boyfriend.  Under employed, lives in his mothers basement, constantly feels sorry for himself and although he tries to be tough is easily ego bruised.

Chris is the boy who loves Annie. (Main character) .  Our everyman.

Danny is the boy who Annie has been cheating with, who insisted she dump Bobby.  Clean cut, handsome, sexy, probably more classically attractive than Chris.  Believable as a police officer.

Elizabeth is Danny’s sister. The author imagines her as a kind of badly dressed ‘manic pixie dream girl’ trope, where she is also sarcastic, a bit aggressive and (purposefully) weird.
