Role Description

Neena: (Lead) a burlesque artist, ready to marry the man of her dreams, who happens to be rich. She is poor and always has been, so the opportunity to marry a good man who is financially stable is a dream come true. In debt to a loan shark, she is desperate and this is a chance she cannot let slip through her fingers. She doesn't have very many friends except one, whom she talks to on the phone all the time. She is terrorized by an unseen paranormal entity in a hotel room for 24 hours while waiting to change her life forever. Fear can been seen in her eyes as she sees and hears things that chill her to the bone. Note: Must be comfortable with brief, partial, non-sexual nudity.
