And Then They Fell
They say it's not unusual... And maybe it's not. Not unusual for terrible things to happen, and never know why. For terrible things to happen and not really care.
And then they fell, brimmer street, los angeles, CA
Jordan (Kacie Rogers) tries to get through to Crystal (Jaquita Ta'le).
Jordan Matthews would be fine, if her mother could hold down a decent job, or if her mother hadn't been arrested on another DUI, or if her mother's boyfriend wasn't a skeevy bastard. But things aren't fine, and Jordan's life is falling apart. The adults in her life are either impotent or uninterested, and the only solace comes from out of the blue.
- Jordan Matthews F. 17 -- A high school girl living in precarious circumstances. Obsessed with the massive bird death in Beebe, Arkansas.
- Dwayne Scott M. 38 -- The boyfriend of Jordan's mother. Thinks of himself as a stand-up guy.
- Cal Washington 17 -- F to M transgender, pre-everything. Passes really well. Smart, determined, and without any real resources.
- Chorus 1 M., plays Newscaster, Nelson, Rehab Employee, Police Radio, Waitress, Rubio
- Chorus 2 F., plays Garza, Crystal, Beat Cop, TV Preacher, Tink
