Dry Land is a play about abortion, female friendship, and resiliency, and what happens in one high school locker room after everybody’s left.

  • AMY: Seventeen. Wears harsh eyeliner to look striking but not pretty.
  • ESTER: Eighteen. Very literal. Wears simple clothes, maybe from Target.
  • REBA: Seventeen. The perfect camp girl. Mean in a casual/ fun way: not deep enough to be cruel, simply self-centered.
  • VICTOR: Twenty. In his own world. Wears skinny pants and old shirts.
  • JANITOR: Male. Late thirties to early eighties.
