Synopsis:
Meet Simon. He’s a stressed out 12-year-old who just wishes that he could find a place to stop and think. Meet the Boy at the Edge of Everything. He is lonely and bored, which makes sense since he lives at the farthest point of the universe. This quirky and charming play explores what happens once these two boys meet after an unlikely series of events involving “lots and lots of fireworks”, and the epic adventure that will leave them both changed forever.

Character Descriptions: 

Simon Ives:
Male, 14-25, any ethnicity

Simon is an inquisitive and intelligent 12-year-old who is stressed with his very busy and regimented life. He is desperately looking for a moment and a place where he can stop the world, just “be” and have nothing to do but think. He constantly feels he is misunderstood by his family, and his friends don’t really listen. He is fascinated with the idea that that there is an edge of our universe where nothing exists

The Boy at the Edge/Colin Gillespie:
Male, 14-25, any ethnicity

A boy who lives at the edge of the universe, alone, and bored. He has “all the time of Forever to do nothing in.”  He is seeking someone who would need him to do something. He is frightened by the idea of the expansion of the universe. The Boy becomes Colin Gillespie, the new kid at school who is in love with all things science.

Mom/Chloe/Ensemble:
Female, 25-45, any ethnicity

Mom is Simon Ives’ mother; a smart, responsible and loving person. Chloe is a classmate of Simon’s; a bit of a tomboy. This actor will also be a member of the ensemble, stepping into characters and physical storytelling roles throughout the show.

Dad/Michael/Ensemble:
Male, 25-45, any ethnicity

Dad is Simon Ives’ father. He is a well-intentioned and caring man who is a little scatter-brained. Michael is a classmate of Simon’s “with way more facial hair than a kid his age should have.”  Not a bully, just doesn’t know how to handle his own testosterone. This actor will also be a member of the ensemble, stepping into characters and physical storytelling roles throughout the show.

Artie/Louie/Ensemble:
Male, 14-25, any ethnicity

Artie is a classmate of Simon’s, tries to be cool without knowing how, obsessed with his crush on another classmate. Louie is Simon’s younger brother.

This actor will also be a member of the ensemble, stepping into characters and physical storytelling roles throughout the show.
