  • Description

    NADINE is the lead role. She is mixed race.


    DUE TO THE SUBJECT MATTER WE ARE LOOKING FOR AN OLDER GIRL WHO LOOKS 10 YEARS OF AGE. THEY MUST HAVE HAD 'THE TALK' WITH THEIR PARENTS OR HAD SEX EDUCATION AT SCHOOL ALREADY. 


    Nadine is 10 years old in the script (looking for an older girl who can play 10 years of age). 

    Nadine is a boisterous, working-class tomboy raised in a single parent home by her white father, which has fast tracked the growing up process, making her very independent and mature beyond her years. Nadine’s Nigerian mother died during her birth and the trauma from this loss, the disconnect from her race and mother figure created feelings of otherness, insecurity, aloneness and guilt.


    Although Nadine’s father loves her dearly his presence is absent, further entrenching her in unconscious feelings of unworthiness. This unworthiness creates a neediness and desire to be liked. People pleasing has become her default, making Nadine vulnerable to being bullied and taken advantage of. Although she can be naive, Nadine is very clever and quick witted. She is most comfortable expressing her masculine energy and gets into lots of fights with the boys at school.
