Role Description

Bethany Moore: (Supporting) to play 38 years old; Emily and Carl’s neighbor, who is a stay-at-home mother raising two children of her own; does allow the signals between her and Carl to become misunderstood which threatens Carl’s marriage.

BETHANY & CARL (SIDE 1)

SUMMARY: This scene takes place midway through Act One. This is the pivotal kiss that happens between both characters. It establishes the building chemistry between them but also becomes important in Emily and Carl’s marriage.

BETHANY You sound like you really miss the ad game.

CARL Nah; I’m good. The kids make up for it.

BETHANY I know but…for the last few weeks, you’ve looked so unhappy. Everything alright?

CARL You noticed…

BETHANY We’ve only been neighbors for the last three years; trust me, I noticed. Talk to me.

CARL Every time Emily brings up me deciding to be a stay at home father, I loose my mind. She kind of forced me into it.

BETHANY I didn’t know that. The way you guys talk about it, I always thought it was something you decided to do on your own.

CARL If I had, I wouldn’t be so angry at her. It’s like I watch her go off to work every day doing something she loves and I’m just…stuck. I know I shouldn’t even complain; I love my kids, trust me; but…I miss my career.

BETHANY You ever try to talk to her? Maybe come to an agreement?

CARL It’s not even worth it. It’ll just…become a fight. It’s whatever.

BETHANY I think you should talk to her. You never know…

CARL Forget I said anything about it.

BETHANY Carl—

[CARL reaches over and kisses BETHANY. The kiss lasts a decent while and then finally breaks]

CARL Bethany...

BETHANY & CARL (SIDE 2)

SUMMARY: This scene takes place during the climatic ending of Act One in which all of the characters stories begin to take center stage. Bethany and Carl discuss the kiss that happened between them.

BETHANY Look, I know I shouldn’t have come here but I wanted to talk to you.

CARL About what?

BETHANY About the kiss.

CARL Bethany, I told you—it was a mistake!

BETHANY See, I don’t think that’s true. I’ve been tossing and turning in my sleep all night about this. You kissed me, remember?

CARL I know I kissed you and it was a mistake.

BETHANY After everything you told me, I don’t think so. That’s the part that gets me.

CARL What are you trying to do right now?

BETHANY I’m trying to figure out where your head is.

CARL Well I already told you. I made a mistake and it’ll never happen again. It was one kiss…and for you to show up here like this—

BETHANY What the hell was I supposed to do when you’ve been avoiding me all day. I had to find out.

CARL [Frustrated] Alright so you got your f**king answer—it was mistake. Can you leave now?

Enter EMILY.

EMILY Bethany…

BETHANY Emily, hi!

EMILY What are you doing here?

BETHANY Oh, I was just—I was passing through and I saw Carl out here so I just wanted to say hi. I was just leaving anyway. [Exits]
