Apart from the gender the character identifies as, we are interested to see actors from any background. We particularly support applications from the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities.
Male - Mid-Late 30s
Gig economy worker who makes his money through delivery driving, football coaching and the odd babysitting job. Extremely blunt, straight talking and equipped with a razor-sharp wit. Hardened by multiple periods of financial difficulty throughout his life, he has developed a robust work ethic and isn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty.
Female - Late 20s
Born into a family that relied on the state for income - 1 of 7 siblings – Due to her own experiences working long hours and low wages to "transcend" her economic background, she is highly conservative in her attitudes to welfare and doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
Female - Late 30s - Early 40s
Babysitter & Domiciliary Carer - Precariat Gig Economy Worker - A very sensory person - Tanisha is incredibly good-natured, tenacious, and spirited. She is bubbly and quick to laugh at herself but is somewhat broken down by the pressures of her work. When push comes to shove, she can be fiercely protective of those in her care.
Female - Any Playing Age
Kitty is a piece of artificial intelligence (slightly more developed than Siri or Alexa) but she should not speak in the standard RP voice that overly saturates this form of technology. An attempt has been made to personalise her and ‘bring her down to earth’. Her voice should sound humane and expressive but with bizarre inconsistencies in tone, fluidity and rhythm. NOTE: We are particularly looking for someone who has experience in Radio and Voice Over. A Voicereel will be needed to apply for this role.
