Fallen Angel of Havelock
The Opening Scene takes place at a juvenile court hearing room, with 8 kids seated in a semi-circle before the Hot Seat. The Peer Jury is asked to determine the consequences for Connor Murphy for violating his probation terms. Little do they know that the their decision will have a consequence on their own young lives. After the hearing which does not turn out positive for young Connor, he becomes the most likely suspect when members of the jury end up being murdered.
But is it really Connor committing these murders?
13-16-year-old street-smart kid who has many secrets. Troubled but salvageable, he comes before the Peer Jury with an attitude.Robb:
15-16-year-old, jury foreman, who is absolutely an obstinate, obnoxious jock who takes his role as the foreman way too seriously. No one should like Robb.Lance:
15-16-year-old fairly decent kid who is there to make a difference. He is the actual leader of the group and clearly puts Robb in his place several times during the course of the hearing.Vic:
15-17 year old lesbian girl who doesn’t take crap off of anyone, especially Robb. She is the only one who treats Connor halfway decent, too.Carrie:
15-17-year old preppie girl who constantly refers to the paperwork at their disposal, and is annoying with her bookish attitude toward Connor and the others, always stating, “Well, if we go “by the book” or “according to the report.”Cal:
15-17-year-old tough guy who doesn’t have much patience for Connor or for Lance. He is Robb’s right hand man, backing him in most cases. He also doesn’t care much for Vic because she is a lesbian or for David, who is gay.Becky:
15-17-year-old rather pleasant girl who is only there to do the right thing. She sides with Vic and Lance on most points, but has little patience with Connor’s so-called “threat.”Crystal:
15-17-year-old jockette who has a crush on Cal and backs him throughout the hearing. But she is also smart and grills Connor most thoroughly about his drug use and other questionable activities.David:
15-17-year-old out gay teen, who adds color to the cast with his mannerisms and cockiness.The audience and most cast members should find him charming and likable.
