CAST ROLES

AMKA
FBKS and ANC – SUPPORTING
Native Alaskan Woman – Late 30s to mid-40’s
She graduated from UAF with a Bachelor’s in Biology. She is smart, sassy, and single. She’s jealous of Tori’s fancy life, even if it didn’t work out that great. What really bugs Amka is that Tori left her behind and Amka has never traveled outside Alaska. They have to rebuild their friendship and accept each other’s flaws.

GRANDMOTHER
ANC – SUPPORTING
Late 70s Woman
Nancy has seen it all. She knows Tori is a strong survivor, but also knows she needs healing and support. G-ma chopped wood and lived in a dry cabin for several years. She knows what it means to survive in the wilderness and make your own way in the world. (Smokes/Negotiable)

ROBIN
ANC – SUPPORTING
Late 50s to mid-60s Woman
A hypochondriac healthcare worker who smokes to relieve tension. She wanted the best for Tori and knows she put work before her daughter when her own husband left. She was so proud of Tori’s ‘better life’ but missed forming a genuine connection with adult Tori and her grandkids. This is her chance to make up for lost time. She always calls her daughter Vicky even though she hates it. (Smokes)

GAT (Great Aunt Tonka)
ANC – SUPPORTING
Late 60s Woman
She is called Tonka because she gave Tori a Tonka truck when she was little. Her real name is Sarah, but no one calls her that. Grandmother is her half-sister. Gat is fun-spirited, always bringing wonder and laughter to the family. She lives out in the bush with her man Joe, only coming into town for supplies every few weeks. She is visiting to lend support to Tori and love on her great-great nieces. She likes to crack jokes and forgets to have a filter when in ‘society’.

JOE

JIM
ANC – SUPPORTING
Late 50s to mid-60s Man
