SM position is filled. Seeking an ASM
Charlie Holt – 50’s-60’s, Kailey’s father, owner of Holt Auto, a struggling car dealership. Charlie is a lapsed Mormon trying to believe again at the urging of his wife, Leece. Naturally carries a sorrow and often makes jokes to compensate. Feels guilty for his daughter’s struggles, like he failed her somehow, but isn’t quite sure how. He desperately wants Kailey to succeed. Charlie struggles with his brother Taylor’s success and tries not to compare his life to Taylor’s. He envies his wife’s powerful belief and tries not to resent her admiration of Taylor.
Taylor Holt – 50’s-60’s, Charlie’s brother, father of Jessie & Joana, two prominent classical violinists and he manages their careers. Taylor is a natural salesman... confident, charming, able to brag without sounding like he’s bragging. He has a disarming quality that puts people at ease. Taylor is a predator. He is a firm believer in Mormonism but more specifically, in God’s particular guidance in his own life. He has no internal concept of guilt but is quite good at manipulating the guilt and doubts of others. Taylor has a need to be adored.
Kailey Beck – late 20’s/early 30’s, Charlie and Leece’s daughter. Married to Jared Beck. Kailey is desperate to be seen as healthy and successful. She suffers from false pregnancy syndrome. She fears her own outbursts sometimes and swings wildly between attacks and apologies. She has a burning rage inside her, of which she is deeply ashamed. Kailey carries a heavy secret of a sexual relationship with her uncle Taylor when she was twelve. She wants to believe she is undamaged from the relationship. Perhaps because of this central untruth she tells herself, she is a rather convincing liar.
Leece (Alice) Holt – 50’s-60’s, Charlie’s wife. Similar to Taylor, Leece is a believer of Mormonism and God’s guidance in her life. She sometimes experiences vivid dreams which she often takes as prophecies. Leece admires Taylor and takes his remarkable success in life as proof of divine approval. Leece is a natural ‘fixer’ always trying to solve a problem by pointing it out and offering the solution, no matter how difficult such a process might be for another person. Leece is aware of this and her need to control a situation and that this tendency has damaged her relationship with her daughter. She is trying to change but old habits die hard. She, like Charlie, feels a vague guilt over her daughter’s struggles and, despite her faith and divine guidance, feels like she failed as a mother.
