Loving Jupiter

Tom, a man of great talent and even greater self-loathing, finds himself, one afternoon, within the orbit of Jupiter. There are planets and then there is Jupiter: a college kid, a fresh breeze, a loving free-spirit, who, while home on Christmas break, happens across Tom in an espresso shop. As their shared passion for photography unwinds, Tom finds unexpected depth in an surprising conversation and, later, bittersweet gratification as the recipient of a random act of love and kindness.

Character Breakdowns:


Thomas X. Woodruff, 50's, is successful, well-known contemporary fine-art
photographer. He goes by Tom. The “X” may or may not be an initial. His public
persona is that of a confident, outgoing artist, however, privately, he is painfully
alone and insecure. He is gay, yet despite his success, he feels like he's always
been on the outside looking in. Under the right circumstances, in the company of
certain people, he can be easy going and inspirational. These people often
come away thinking Tom would do anything for them.


Jupiter, 20, is a college student at a small liberal arts college. Jupiter doesn't
take life very seriously, whether it be art school, nude modeling for his art school
(where he is referred to as the “Skinny Adonis”), and even his (and his
brother's) given names which he tossed in favor planetary names. He is a
frequently silly, charming free-spirit, and pretty much instantly lovable.

Mrs. Collins

Mrs. Collins, mid-40's, is Jupiter's mother. She's a happily married, suburban
mom, and is probably a real estate agent. She's busy and always seems to have
some place to be. She loves her sons but is somewhat befuddled by her eldest,
Steven (aka Jupiter).

Previous acting experience is preferred.
