OFFICER looks squeaky clean. He wears his uniform with pride. He’s a man of integrity and high values. Would never do something immoral or crooked.

GLENN (AKA PSYCHO) wears all black-goth clothes. He has no use for authority and is always very aggressive and bellicose. Dry sense of humor. You probably wouldn’t want to bump into him in a dark alley at night.

THORNTON is an expensive suit-wearing successful lawyer. He is selfish, narcissistic, sleazy and egotistical. Always looking out for number one. He will help you… for a price.

JULIE is John Doe’s wife and is the only characters who plays two different versions of herself. In one version her interactions with the rest are always a little off. She never establishes clear eye contact. She acts very strangely, almost as if he had her own, separate dialog going on. In the other version she is a total b… She’s conniving, manipulating, treacherous and destructive.

AVERY JOE is, as his name implies, an average joe. He’s pretty much an under-confident, cowardly loser who has never achieved anything in his life. His dreams are nothing but feeble wishes. He’s completely unmotivated and seldom fights for himself.

DOCTOR PASHENT is a “Freudian-looking” doctor with a heavy German accent. He’s pedantic and condescending.

NURSE ABBY is a pretty and angelical young nurse. She’s very sweet and a bit naive. She genuinely cares for her patients and has developed a cruch for John Doe, even though he’s in a coma.

NURSE OLGA is a much older nurse. She’s bitter and has “seen it all”. Even though she’s very good at what she does, she’s become sarcastic and complacient.


MARK John Doe’s literary agent. (This actor will also play the role of HOSPITAL SECURITY GUARD

JOHN DOE : Although this is the title character, the role mostly calls for someone to play a comatose patient (although eventually there’s quite a bit of acting and body/facial expressions)
