Circle 7 is a drama paralleling Dante’s Inferno in which we find John, a military war veteran, stuck in his own personal level of hell. It’s an allegory for one man’s fight to live, highlighting the angst of post-war trauma.
JOHN (male, early 30s, all ethnicities)
John is a U.S. veteran of the war in Iraq. As the only surviving member of his team, he blames himself for the death of his brothers-in-arms and has had a difficult time coping with PTSD, which has taken a toll on his family life. He was once a proud military leader but now has a gaunt, sickly appearance and rattles around in his pajamas/robe.
MATT (male, 20s, all ethnicities)
Matt is currently in the military and has a lean or muscular build, with short-cropped hair. He’s a charismatic southern type in his prime, gung-ho about serving his country. He’ll be in dress blues for the role so we’d like to see actors in a suit or jacket and jeans to get a visual of an officer’s uniform.
