SYNOPSIS

The play centers on Ever, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, who seeks the instruction of a Broadway dancer to learn enough dancing to survive an awards dinner. The dancer, Senga, however, is recovering from an injury that may stop her dancing career permanently. As their relationship unfolds, they’re both caught off-guard by the discoveries-both hilarious and heartwarming-that they make about each other and about themselves.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

EVER (M) (mid 20s – 40): Young man, professional with Asperger’s Syndrome. High functioning. Neurotic. Also affectionate.

SENGA (F) (mid 20s – 40): Dancer at the end of her career. Bitter, resentful and struggling emotionally. At the center is a softness.
