Full Project Team and Needs
More on projectHide project details

Sarah and Martin are looking for someone to occupy their vacant spare room. But the process is draining, dull, long and seemingly painful. Nobody seems to fit. The scenes play out in a comedic sequence with humour injected in every interaction and their reactions to the quirky, eccentric and unusual characters that show up, all the while finding words to put down on their scrabble board which seems to sum up each experience nicely.

Supporting Documents

Sarah is a woman of any age between 25 and 40 but will have to match the person we cast for Martin. The two are confused to be a couple multiple times, so there will need to be a chemistry between them even at face value since they're mates, playing scrabble and enduring the process together. Any race but should have good English.
