FATHER TONI gets invited to a Christmas party at a congregant’s family home. Standard practice. Only problem? Toni previously had an anonymous (and spellbinding) hookup with their son, JP, who opens the door and greets him with nervous, sexual tension. Toni intends to apologize for lying and break things off with JP, but gets derailed by their undeniable connection. Their conversation, however, is not as private as they think.
Role typeRoleGender & Age range
LeadJohn PaulMale 30 - 40 Years old
30-40 years old, BIPOC, male, Gay. "JP" is charming, curious, and playful. He can't deny his connection with Toni, but definitely doesn't want his parents finding out he slept with their beloved priest. His family is cool with his queerness but they don't talk about it. He does not live with his parents. JP is slightly turned on by the messiness of this scandal, but draws the line at dealing with Toni's unaddressed gay shame. Actively seeking members from 2SLGBTQIA+ communities.
Role typeRoleGender & Age range
ActorKidAll 8 - 13 Years old
8-13 years old, open gender, BIPOC (same as JP). JP's nibling/niece/nephew. Quiet type, but warm with kind and playful eyes. Likes to hide and play alone when their big family has get-togethers. Likes the warmth and compactness of the front closet. Amateur matchmaker.
