Kevin, 17 (lead)

Kevin is on his way to having an identity crisis. He lacks confidence as a result of confusion regarding his identity + sexuality, which is amplified by his mother's strong values and influence. Her strong presence within Kevin’s school and footy community led to Kevin being forced to hang out with his team that he doesn't quite get along with, but puts on a face to keep the peace. His relationship with Jim broke down some time ago as a result of Kevin unable/ not ready to stand up to his mother

Male, aged 18 to 30

Applications closed 15 December 2020.

Jim, 17 (lead)

In the process of accepting himself, Jim is slowly starting to build his confidence and identity. Though his peers still manage to give him a hard time, Jim attempts to shrug it off with varying success. Even though no change ever came from Kevin during their friendship, Jim always counted on the possibility and decides to give Kevin one last chance.

Male, aged 18 to 30

Applications closed 15 December 2020.

Harry, 17 (supporting)

One of Kevin’s ‘friends’ from his new social group. There’s no history to the friendship and lacks any sort of authenticity or substance - everything is surface. Ultimately Harry keeps Kevin around for his own benefit - maybe it’s a friendship of convenience, an ego boost or that he’s trying to impress Kevin’s mum (and possibly with extension the coach). Either way, there is only one person gaining anything from this friendship, and that is Harry.

Male, aged 18 to 30

Applications closed 15 December 2020.

Dylan, 17 (supporting)

Dylan doesn't really have a strong opinion about anything, but if the person he’s hanging out around says something with enough conviction, he’s likely to follow along. He cruses through his teenage years without a worry and is the person everyone knows to go to for a good time.

Male, aged 18 to 30

Applications closed 15 December 2020.

Stacy, 17 (supporting)

We all know this girl - confident, friendly and sociable, however, if you don’t have what she needs, she’s quick to move on. She’s witty and smart, though the people she chooses to spend her time with don't reflect those qualities, but rather bring out the nasty and judgemental side of her.
