I looked for weeks for a script that would be perfect for Miles, Sydney and Lana.  Not finding what I wanted, I decided it would take less time to write something, than to continue the search.  Then Isabel joined the group.  So I wrote the play for four young actors, based on their personalities, talents, and experience.

Knowing that one my actors might not be able to perform because of extreme nerves, I wrote her a part equal to that of the other actors, while making sure that the other characters carried the plot of the play.  This worked. 

I liked the script enough that I plan to write a more elaborate version in the future.
