HAPPY PILLS

BY ALYSSA COKINIS

November 3rd, 12pm-3pm

MadLab – 227 N 3rd Street

Free parking! Pick up a voucher at the box office

After nuclear attacks on U.S. cities, happiness and other emotions can no longer be produced naturally by humans; their brain chemistry has been severely altered due to nuclear fallout. The Integrated Borders Union, a new government near former Washington, D.C., works with local drug manufacturers to produce chemically-created emotions; these pills are part of the mandatory Pill Program for all citizens residing in the IBU. To those wandering the wasteland, they must survive the terrain and hungry groups of hunters. We go back and forth in time between Fern’s present, in which she resides in the Integrated Borders Union one year after the fallout, and Fern’s past, or what happened to her on the road a few months directly after the fallout.

Seeking male and female actors for 7 roles.

CHARACTERS:

FERN (F, 18-20) a drug addict, daughter of a drug manufacturer

KEROUAC (F, 20-25) a survivalist, origins unknown

JON (M, 18-20) son of the Integrated Borders Union president

ROSE (F, 30-50’s) Fern’s mother, a drug manufacturer

KISA (F, 20’s) a starving survivor
