ROLES:
#11 (Female Identified, 17, Open Ethnicity)
Midfield. Brainy, morbid, budding elitist, thoughtful.
She is super smart, with an air of intellectual superiority. Facts matter to her and she doesn’t like to be wrong. She sincerely enjoys documentaries and is a columnist for the high school paper. Both of her parents are therapists and very involved in her life. She tends to lead with morbid, dark, strange humor and interests. She has a more global view of the world than her teammates. Actors with soccer experience is a plus.

#25 (Female Identified, 17, Open Ethnicity)
Defense, Captain. Classic (ex) coach’s daughter.
She is well respected by the team, a hard worker and a strong leader. At times she wants to join in on the fun and does but will suddenly back off to keep the girls at arms-length. She keeps them on track and loves a great pep talk. She isn’t afraid to police her teammates with language and behavior. She is exploring her sexual identity. Actors with soccer experience is a plus. Role does require a buzz cut, will wear a wig for majority of play. MUST BE WILLING TO SHAVE HEAD.

#13 (Female Identified, 16, Open Ethnicity)
Midfield. Stoner (her older brother is a pot dealer). Wacky.
She likes being the life of the party, the fun one. The goof off. She refuses to take anything too seriously and loves to tease, poke fun at her teammates. Sometimes, she goes too far which can get her into trouble. Actors with soccer experience is a plus.

#46 (Female Identified, 16, Open Ethnicity)
Bench, later Striker. The new girl. Awkward, different, just wants to fit in.
She is homeschooled and lives in a yurt with her new age, travel writer mom. She has traveled and lived all over the world. Her nomadic lifestyle has left her with a lack of social skills and the understanding of American teen culture. She just wants to be friends with her teammates. Actor must have sharp humor, can carry a tune and impressive soccer skills. Actor must juggle a soccer ball for one minute or perform a similarly impressive soccer skill during the show.

#2 (Female Identified, 16, Open Ethnicity)
Defense. Innocent, unlucky, kind, petite person.
Naïve, sheltered. She does not like gossiping about others. She is kind, humble, generous and often trying to reach out to those in need in a sincerely genuine way. She is a member of her Episcopalian church’s youth group. No cellphone or TV in her house. A limited world view that is now expanding. Based on lived experience, she feels like the youngest of the group. She has suffered multiple concussions from soccer and wears headgear. Actors with soccer experience is a plus.

#7 (Female Identified, 16, Open Ethnicity)
Striker. Too cool for school. Sarcastic, says “fuck” a lot, wears thick eyeliner. Child of a bad divorce. Daughter of a lawyer, who is always busy, always working. She hit puberty before ALL the other girls in her class. Dating a college boy. She finds worth through her sexual value. She is dealing with a lot and at times we should feel pretty concerned for her wellbeing. She’s tough, abrasive, potentially the meanest girl of the group - but the audience empathizes with her and why she is acting out in the way she does. Has problems with authority. Actors with soccer experience is a plus.

#14 (Female Identified, 18+ to play 16, Armenian-American)
Midfield. #7’s insecure sidekick. Just switched to contacts.
Her dad is Armenian. She is besties with #7 and is trying to keep up with #7’s bad girl, cool vibe...until she finds her backbone and stands up for herself. She hates liars and the betrayal of her best friend is deeply felt. She has a firm understanding of right and wrong. An emotionally developed individual. Her mom, SOCCER MOM, is involved in her life. She has a great family. Actors with soccer experience is a plus.

#8 (Female Identified, 16, Open Ethnicity)
Defense. Childlike and determined to stay that way.
Porcelain upbringing, in her own bubble, uses “omigosh” often. Uses naiveté as a façade. Obsessed with making it to nationals in Miami. A crier, a whiner, a giggly, excitable girl. Actors with soccer experience is a plus.

#00 (Female Identified, 17, Open Ethnicity)
Goalie. Intense performance anxiety, an extreme perfectionist, high achiever.
She is the heart of the team. Editor in Chief of high school newspaper, leads model UN, plays cello in the state youth orchestra. Before every game she vomits from anxiety. She is an amazing athlete. The pressure she puts on herself stems from her parents and the constant need to try to prove herself. She feels the weight of winning on her shoulders. Actor must have strong soccer passing and kicking skills.

SOCCER MOM (Female Identified, 40s-50s, Open Ethnicity)
Mom of #14. Warm, generous, suburban mom who prides herself on her involvement in her kids’ lives. She never misses a game. She played soccer in her youth and has coached a few youth teams. She is the mom leading cheers and chants as the girls play. All the teammates know and love her. She is grappling with the process of grieving her daughter. She would rather console her daughter’s teammates than admit her tragedy. She is spinning fast to avoid thinking about her unthinkable loss. Manic with grief. Verbal dexterity is essential. No soccer experience necessary.

AVAILABLE ROLES:
KARLA: A charismatic woman in her early 30s whose pretty face and somewhat
childlike demeanor belie an incredibly dirty mouth and mind. Spunky, spirited, angry, wickedly funny. A stand-up comedian with a real penchant for dark humor which she uses to hide behind and distract herself from the pain of her mother's sickness.

DON: An unassuming man in his 40s. The kind of person you would never even notice on the subway or walking down the street --an "everyman" in the most boring sense of the word. Clearly has been through a lot of stress both in life-in-general and also more acutely quite recently. Employs a raging temper to mask the gaping wound left from his recent marital split and his mother's illness.

MARCIE: Karla's mother. A painfully thin, pale, dyed-redhead in her 50s. Recovering from a hysterectomy that she had to treat Stage I endometrial cancer. Very dry wit, like Karla. In her case, her dark humor belies not only oceans of pain but also an abusive, selfish cruelty. Still, she is capable of deep love and moments of tender vulnerability.
