MY FUNNY VALENTINE:
Synopsis: My Funny Valentine is a comedy about Bruce Chunk, a man who despises Valentine’s Day due to his parent’s decision to celebrate it as their huge family holiday growing up rather than Christmas. But when his new wife’s water breaks at this year’s annual festivities, Bruce must blackmail her to cover it up and hold in the baby until they can escape his parent’s house, so his future child won’t be submitted to a lifetime of torturous birthdays by his grandparents. Along the way he learns a lesson about the crazy things parents do to protect their kids and winds up finding some respect for the illogical decisions his own parents made.
BRUCE CHUNK, in his early thirties, has never been blessed with more than enough of anything. When he looks in the mirror each morning, he sees an average joe, with an average life, and an average car, always wishing for something more than average for once. Ages 25-35
NANCY CHUNK, Bruce’s wife, is the yin to his yang, the optimism to his cynicism, and the forcefulness to his stubbornness. Pregnant with their first child. Ages 25-35
CHAD BOSWICK, also in his early thirties, is the golden boy who grew up across the street, always living the life Bruce wanted. A childish rivalry boils in the blood of both grown men. Ages 25-35
VERONICA BOSWICK, Chad’s stepford wife, is nearly perfect in every way. Sweet and funny, it’s hard to hate her for being so perfect. Ages 25-35
ZELDA CHUNK, is Bruce’s erratic and overly affectionate mother. Although frequently embarrassing and probably a little mentally unstable, she loves her son. Ages 50-65
HOWARD CHUNK, Bruce’s goofy father, is a “free spirit.” He has found peace and harmony with the world, and cherishes family above all else. Ages 50-65
TEENAGE BRUCE Ages 15-18
