Role Description

John: (Lead) if he didn't have to go to work, he would never leave the house, awkward, lonely, slightly overweight, deeply insecure, the kind of person who looks at his shoes to avoid talking to people on the elevator. He was likely picked on as a child, and wasn't the apple of his mother or father's eyes by any means. Average in most respects; below average in others; above average in none. Note: The performer must be able to convey a range of emotions subtly. This is not a high-key character. John is a deep, sympathetic loner, who feels left out of the world and belittled by his co-workers and "friends."
