Fire Exit
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.


RUDY (M-teen)- goofy, energetic, charming. Likable, but makes lots of mistakes. Jokes a lot, but cares deeply about his friends.

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
