Synopsis
For years, Bea hid and bore this oddity inside her, the Forbidden Thing. But today, she might have compromised herself and has to escape if she wants to survive. Will her journey to the Other Side allow her to embrace her true inner nature or will she become another invisible casualty of the society she was raised in?

"The Other Side" is an intense psychological immersion into a disturbing yet somehow very familiar world. Its secrets are revealed progressively as we follow the struggles of an individual against its rules.

Bea

Mid-20s. Bea works as a real estate assistant in a big city. She is an introvert and lonely person. When she was a teenager, she discovered she was different from most of her peers; she also learned that revealing this difference to others might be deadly for her. Bea had to build herself alone on secret, trauma, restrained anger and absurd, fragile dreams. This combination has kept her alive and "safe" since years. Until now.

Females, aged 18 to 30

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Joe

30s/40s. Joe has always lived recklessly. An extravert with a big mouth and an assumed gigolo. He always experienced life at 200% without thinking about long term and consequences. Until now, when they catch up with him the hard way. His extensive bravado is a way for him to hide his insecurities and avoid to confront them.

Males, aged 25 to 45

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Officer

Late 20s to early 40s. This role is opened to both genders. This police officer is the "perfect soldier of the system". He/she represents the worst outcome of the society Bea lives in: a zealot, predator and manipulator. He/she will stop at nothing to break and eliminate the enemies of society. As a spider, he/she prepares several threads to catch his/her preys in his/her web.

Anyone, aged 25 to 45

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Radio show host and guest

2 roles (1 host, 1 guest). Voice over only. Two emissaries of the omnipresent propaganda in Bea's world. The guest is supposed to be some kind of eminent specialist in "history" and "science", a guaranty of seriousness and respectability. The host serves as the (overly) enthusiastic and sympathetic interface between the dogma and the general public.

Males, aged 25 to 60

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Typical Citizen I and Typical Citizen II

2 support roles (1 male, 1 female). Mid-20s to mid-40s. Typical "products" of the system. They live "happily" in this society without even questioning it. Bea has a vision of what kind of persons they could be in other circumstances.

Anyone, aged 25 to 45

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles
