Loner – Geek in the school who is picked on by his peers and neglected by his parents. Has a romantic fascination with Rebel, who views him as “not her first choice. Maybe not anyone’s.” In the Second Act, embodies Dylan Klebold.
Freak – An underdog with a chip on his shoulder and a chest deformity. He is ridiculed by his classmates, with the exception of AP, whom he detests. His father is an ex-military general who is overly hard on him. In the Second Act, embodies Eric Harris.
AP (Advanced Placement) – The play’s representation of pure kindness and good-heartedness. He is extremely intelligent, but fantasizes about having good looks, popularity, and athletic ability, which he can never have due to a life-threatening illness. He reaches out to the other students, and is a secret friend to most of them. He is the only character who the killers set free at the shootings.
Rebel – Artistic and rough-talking teenager who finds a sort of kinship with Loner. She thinks AP is nice, but that he is too pure-hearted and a “loser” for her taste. She denies rumors that she is goth or a druggie, but is seen making cuts into her arm in the First Act.
Faith – Has a passion for Biblical studies, which is often her downfall when trying to make friends. Is briefly the object of Freak’s affection. She is well-liked by many people, but her virginal way of thinking is often made fun of.
Perfect – The most popular girl in school, though many people find her to be snobby and fake. It appears that she has no problems with her life at all. However, it is revealed that her mother is a school bus driver, and is struggling to make ends meet. Perfect also reveals that she is pregnant.
Prep – Standard school bully, who is popular because of who his friends are. He has an unreturned romantic interest in Jock.
Jock – Popular and amiable school hero. He is athletic, popular, and extremely attractive. As a hard-working student in school, he finds it irritating that the terms “Brainless” and “Jock” are so often put together.
All actors except for those playing Loner and Freak play multiple roles. All characters except for Loner and Freak may be split to make two roles, but no role will be doubled.
