ROLES

DEITY : Soothing celestial soul that is wise and caring; he has an air of whimsy to his questions- using a mix of comedy and seriousness to guide Ahmed on his journey of grief.
Older black African man, 50s-70s (must speak French fluently)

AHMED (ADULT): A man who has lost his daughter and struggles to come to terms with it- not understanding how to cope with his grief debilitates him. Ahmed is kind and heartbroken, but tries to carry a shield of anger and disillusionment to protect his suffering.
Older black African man 40s-50s (must speak French fluently)

AHMED (YOUNG ADULT): Ahmed softens as he becomes more youthful- and his inquisitive nature and impulsive questions reflect his younger age, helping him get to the root of his grief.
Younger black African man 18-20s (must speak French fluently)

AHMED (CHILD): Ahmed is a young child at this point, finding innocence in his youth. He is, while usually a lively young boy, tired after understanding the nature of grief.
Young, black, African boy (15-18; must speak French fluently)
