(17-21 to play 18, African American). Sole is from a middle class family. She is a confused soul who solves her problems in life by overeating. She’s not obese but carries her weight well—one might call her ‘healthy.’ Her life is consumed by the idea that others have it all, especially the beautiful, slender dancer who lives in the building next to hers. Life has not yet taught given Sole a strong sense of self.
JASMINE is the slender, stylish, witty, sometimes moody dancer who lives in the next building to Sole. Jasmine has no idea that Sole holds her as a role model, even though they work at the same food shop. Jasmine’s life is not as perfect as Sole perceives it to be. Instead of binge eating like Sole does she solves her problems by cutting herself.
