Synopsis: Emily has been living with Olivia her whole life. Olivia is her best friend and roommate, her protector and her downfall. She can be extraordinarily difficult and time consuming but she is always there. Olivia is Emily's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

  • Emily*: A twenty-five year old suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (*ROLE IS CAST)
  • Olivia: Her OCD in human form. She should read as charming and genuine but protective. Her ultimate goal always is protecting Emily from harm.
  • Rowan*: He is her roommate, a baker, and her rock. (*ROLE IS CAST)
  • Graham: The boy she loves and doesn’t want to lose. He is goofy but sincere. His spirit animal would be a golden retriever.
