—– Breakdown —————–

Young Frank (BACKUP ACTOR ONLY – This role is cast but we will consider backup actors) –
A young man 20-25 who is alone and comes across Rita. He is interested and inquisitive in the surroundings and he is easily persuaded. He embodies the carefree, almost innocent, nature of young love. He has a desire to break free of the path and find out who Rita is because he is attracted to her. Young Frank is the embodiment of new love and passion in Old Frank’s dreams.

20-25
Dark hair
Italian or Portuguese or Mediterranean descent
Active/Carefree
Dressed casually but nicer than t-shirt/jeans

Rita- A young woman 25-30 who is a memory/ghost of Old Frank’s departed wife. She is mysterious
originally but she is also to guide Young Frank to accept her death and to try and be thankful for their life together. She can see the future and knows the cycle of the dream but her intention is to make a breakthrough with Frank. She serves as his conscience but also as a driving force for him to be a better person. Rita is the embodiment of perspective and guilt in Frank’s life.

25-30
Any hair
Ethnic background preferred, flexible on nationality origins
Reserved/Loving/Mysterious
Wearing a summer dress, something classically beautiful but not overtly sensual

Old Frank – Old Frank is Frank’s actual self; he is the one having the dream. He has become bitter and
angry in his life choosing to live and work in mostly solitude. He does not have a good relationship
with his two boys because he feels guilty for being angry when their mother died and although he loves
them, he does not know how to begin to repair the damage that might have been caused. He is a baker,
and surprisingly, bakes some of the best wedding cakes in the area although he is notorious for creating
his own cake for the bride rather than what she would specifically want. When Rita died, he threw
himself into his work for escape and subconsciously began to create for other couples what he desired
most: happiness with someone the person he loves.

50-70
White or graying hair
Resembles Young Frank
