MARLAH, 20’s, female.  Marlah Monologue:

All of the problems that arise in our relationship always seem to stem from the insecurities you have with that
friendship! It doesn’t have shit to do with me, but for some reason you keep expecting me to fucking apologize, or
comfort you, tell you that I will keep my head down because you are the only
boy in the world that I have eyes for. I honestly don’t know what you thought as going to happen tonight, showing
up here with that little speech in front of all of my coworkers, you are fucking delusional if you thought that
was going to go well. This is so embarrassing Ty.

Must be available for all Production dates; August 23-25, August 30-September 2.

Callbacks/chemistry reads are by invitation only TBD
