Halcyon Days Full Script


It’s August in Bridgeport, NY, a cute, not terribly expensive town in Long Island’s North Fork. Over 24 hours in a curious rented house with bright walls and no locks on the door, six 30something friends and one special guest, a 17-year-old townie picked up near the town carousel, will drink too much, take too much of too many drugs, and go through a collective, premature mid-life crisis. Break-ups, new (but very strange) love, self-realizations, and a few steps closer to delayed adulthood are all just part of the weekend, and its hangover.

Character Breakdown

Amit Chaudhri – 35, Male, Indian-American, unpredictable, at least somewhat self-destructive

Ella Fox- 33, Female, ecstatic, artistic, manic-depressive

Kyle Marija –  36, Male, gay, loud, deeply sardonic, but sweet-natured

Aurelio Moreno- 42, Male, Mexican-American, awkward but self-motivated, an indoor kid

Grace Stroud – 34, Female, sad-eyed, bright, unfulfilled (at least in her own mind)

Starla “Star” Jenkins – 17, Female, strikingly intelligent, youthfully ignorant
