ROLE SUMMARIES

JONAH MOSS, Early 30s, a reluctant corporate man now dog walking, not an Alpha Male, thoughtful, brooding, a bit of a Holden Caulfield in  that he has no patience for any perceived insincerity.  He has an  acerbic tongue, but will use it more to complain behind the scenes than to take people on head on.  The horrible turn of events is making him more aggressive in public.  It’s not clear what he is passionate  about except his son. He’s analytical/a brainy researcher but not a  total nerd… Lead character. (half-hour dark comedy)
