Roi Jones wakes up in a strange home and has no idea how he got there. He discovers that he is trapped in the home and thus begins to put clues together about why he is there and who currently or formerly lived in the home. Throughout his search, strange things begin to occur... lights turning off, doors closing, and strange sounds emitting from nowhere. He soon finds out the house belonged to an experimental/deranged painter named Jon. Roi desperately needs to find out why he is being kept captive in the artist home and what Jon plans on doing with his prisoner.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
ROI JONES / Lead - Man, 30’s – 40’s,
Roi is simple, yet smart enough to get by, he is easy to please but difficult to read. He grew up being able
to find his passion in simple things. Hence why he became a writer. For him, writing comes naturally. His
favorite genre is horror, but when it comes time to fight or flight, he doesn’t quite know what he would
do. Must be comfortable with light stage combat.
JON / Lead - Man, 30’s – 40’s,
Jon loves art. His upbringing was complicated, but he managed to find solace in his painting. Due to his
struggle growing up with an abusive father, after his mother died, he and his sister Mara became solely
dependent on each other. She took care of him, even through adulthood. Through his drug addictions,
break ups, mental and emotional breakdowns, he comes to realize his only vice is painting. Making the
perfect art piece is his latest addiction. Must be comfortable with light stage combat.
MARA / Supporting - Woman, 30’s – 40’s,
Mara always looked out for her brother. She protected him from their father. She helped raise him after
their mother died. She eventually became her brother’s manager and art promoter. She always had faith in
his art and the potential of his work. Her support is strong, almost to a fault. She only wants for her
brother to be happy. Must be comfortable with light stage combat.
JENNIFER / Supporting - Woman, 30’s – 40’s.
Jennifer is Roi’s girlfriend. They at one of his gallery events and have been only been on a few dates. She
really likes him. She is steadfast and strong. Always professional but not afraid to let loose with those she
