L’APPEL DU VIDE, a script



GABI                          Female, 15 years old, shy/kept to herself, unable to fit in with the rest of her community, and unconventionally beautiful. She has purple hair and wears red glasses and white graduation gown attire.

ALISON                     Female, 15 years old, Gabi’s best friend, intelligent, self-confident, energetic, talkative, and conventionally beautiful. She has brown hair in an eloquent, detailed braid and wears white graduation gown attire as well.

JASON                       Male, 15 years old, Gabi and Alison’s friend, upset, angry, confused, fragile, thin, tall. He has hair of any colour that hangs in his face and wears white graduation gown attire as well.

CONDUCTOR           30+ years old, powerful, self-confident, and has a commanding presence. Gender of this character does not matter, but must be male or female due to the polar-opposite rules of the world the play takes place in. He or she has undyed hair and is wearing decorative, lavish clothing (suit-and-tie or eloquent dress).

TIME                          The beginning of the year, 2046

SETTING                   A supply closet, or a room that would be at the back of a theatre.


Right now, Gabi Wells knows three things: (1) she likes girls, (2) she also likes guys, and (3) in ten minutes, she will have to announce her sexual-orientation to a community of people who only accept the polar opposites of gay and straight. In the panic of the moment, Gabi makes an uncomfortable decision.
