Synopsis: In this modern day comedy of errors we discuss taboos and the often less than accurate expectations that come with them. Megan has fallen on some hard times trying to pay her bills as a recent college graduate so she hops on a sugar baby dating site and sets up a date to meet with an older gentleman, William. William is a funny dad-type. Divorced, lonely, and curious he decides to go for it. What ensues for each of their "first times" is nothing even near sexy. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Project Notes
NOTE: This project contains NO NUDITY. For a minor portion of the short, Megan and William with both be in their underwear. Both actors should be comfortable with that. Initial auditions will be via self- tape, with callbacks in NYC. 
MEGAN: 20-30's, Female, Any ethnicity. Fresh out of college and at a loss for what to do with her life. Make no mistake, she is VERY smart woman, but a hot mess at the same time. She makes this decision to meet up with William off some type of Sugar Dating website. She is very innocent to this world, but not shy in her every day life. Actress needs to have FANTASTIC comedic timing.
WILLIAM: 50-70's, Male, Any ethnicity. William is a father. He's a good man who is lonely and looking for some missing female attention in his life. He's the type of guy who makes dad jokes at any given opportunity. His part in this is just as innocent as Megan. Actor should be charming, and have great comedic timing.
JANE: 20-30's, Female, Any Ethnicity. Jane is William's daughter. They accidentally FaceTime her during their evening and it creates some awkward tension.
JAKE: 20-30's, Male, Any Ethnicity. Jake is a super hot beefy stud who comes to meet Megan after matching with her on Tinder. He's got muscles and a great face. The type of guy who would have been the high school football star.
