Ana/Esmeralda - lead. Female, 22 to 27 years old, Hispanic.
A lead role; the piece is considered to be "her film." By day, Ana is an intelligent, self-confident, and gregarious senior at a prestigious university. By night, "Esmeralda" is a powerful, sophisticated, and sexy high-class escort. No matter when it is, she's personable, sharp, and always in control.This is a complex lead role giving the actor cast an opportunity to show a wide range of emotions and verbal dexterity.

Graphic sexual situations and nudity. This is NOT a pornographic project or exploitation film, this is a serious film by an award-winning director who has years of experience with provocative subject matter. The production is committed to making all actors feel safe and comfortable. However, if you are uncomfortable with nudity and sexual content, please do not submit for this project.

Shannon - featured. Female, 22 to 27 years old, white.
This is a challenging role for an actor who's required to remain sympathetic while doing unsympathetic things. Shannon is a smart, opinionated, and edgy college senior whose relationship with her father has been estranged ever since he divorced his mother when Shannon was 12. Gregarious with her friends but slightly cold with her father, Shannon is capable of being a young adult, or an oversized child.

Stacy - featured. Female, 42 to 52 years old, white.
This role requires charm, wit, and wisdom, with the memory of a failed marriage suppressed beneath the surface. Stacy is an intelligent and ambitious professional woman celebrating the college graduation of her daughter, and dealing with seeing her ex-husband for the first time in over a decade.

Gabriel - featured. Male, 21 to 27 years old, Hispanic.
This role requires an actor with personality and charm. Gabriel is a college junior tagging along with his girlfriend to her graduation dinner. Relaxed, charming, and intelligent, he's unintimidated by the prospect of meeting her parents for the first time.

Ellery - featured. Male, 21 to 27 years old, white.

This is a role for an actor with a sense of humor and attitude. Ellery is an intelligent, goofy, and self-entitled college junior who doesn't cow-tow to anyone, a boyfriend tagging along to an uncomfortable dinner with parents he's never met before.
