Everybody at Westfeild High School thinks they know what happened the day of the fire. Fire exit opens in teh aftermath as the community faces what appears to be a prank gone wrong. But as the kids and adults open up about their lives through a series of poignant and often funny monologues, Fire Exit is a powerful ensemble piece that proves things, and people, aren’t always what they seem.

MORGAN (F-teen)- confident, dramatic, opinionated, prone to exaggerate. Passionate about journalism and social media. Appears superficial, but is sharper than people assume. Cares about the truth.
HELEN (F-teen)- shy, slow to make friends, very loyal. Big hearted, but strongest when caring for others. Is stronger rhan she knows.
DEVIN (M-teen)- athletic, strong, honourable. Admires his father more than anyone in the world. Is braver than he realises.
JANICE (F-teen)- perfectionist, petrified of failure. A hummingbird of energy, afraid if she ever stops she’ll fall. Actually exhausted, wants to have a reason to give up the fight.
BOBBIE (M/F-teen)- excellent at math, numbers, logic. Extremely steady and consistent, almost obsessive. Gets stuck when analysis/statistics fail them.
PRINCIPAL EVANS (M/F- adult)- firm leader, decent to their core. Wants to defend and protect the school and students. Fears loss of control. MR/S JENKINS (M/F- adult,40+) parent. Defined by their love for their children
