Role Description

Margot: (Supporting) one of Dan's dates; a contortionist; must be comedic.

Margot's Sides

Dan wears the completed helmet, while awkwardly perched backwards in his seat. We see his fragmented view of the movie. MARGOT (26, contortionist with sparkling body suit) sits next to him in an equally unconventional position.
Dan reaches for the popcorn but can’t see it. He turns around and the large, protruding helmet clunks Margot. She moves to the edge of her seat, as far from Dan as possible. Behind them, a MARRIED COUPLE moves a seat over; the helmet blocks their view.
Dan takes the bite of delicious popcorn. He turns back around but the helmet knocks over Margot’s soda. It spills all over her sparkly attire. Margot startled runs out of the theater.
Disappointed, Dan takes off the helmet.
