SUSAN: The smartest girl in the senior class. Besties with J. Has a crush on Dave...wait, what?! No she doesn't whatever shut up! She's going to Princeton in the Fall.
MS. ANTONUCCI: Has a husband and two dogs. Teaching was her second-choice career. She almost didn't come back to school after a car accident where she got side-swiped by a Coca Cola truck and almost died. She now realizes how precious life is, but lives in constant fear. She wears a neckbrace for the duration of the play.
MIGUEL: Captain of the hockey team. Loves his friends, loves rap music, hates homework. Screw homework, amiright? Let's party! Going to Dartmouth in the Fall (We know, we can't believe it either).
BRIAN: Former best friend of Dave. A recovering slacker, trying hard to finish out high school on a strong note. He'll probably run a business when he's older, or like...probably a bunch of em. Not as dumb as you think. Why would you think he's dumb at all, bro?! He's going to business school in the Fall.
DAVE: Former best friend of Brian. One of the smartest kids in class. But also one of the weirdest. He used to go to OzzFest every year, so what?? Whatever. His dream is to be a composer. He's going to Berkeley in the Fall.
