Job Details


By Keith Bunin
Directed by Mark Clements

A young man armed with a secret that can land him in terrible trouble boards the Coast Starlight, the long-distance train that runs from Los Angeles to Seattle. With the help of his fellow travelers, all of whom are reckoning with their own choices, he has roughly one thousand miles to figure out a way forward. THE COAST STARLIGHT is a smart, funny, and compassionate story about our capacity for invention and re-invention when life goes off the rails.


TJ - 20 to 30 years old, White man. A young man aboard the Coast Starlight, looking to escape his life as a medic in the Navy and start anew somewhere far away. A lost soul trying to figure out how to navigate life.

JANE - 20 to 30 years old, all ethnicities woman. A young woman with many dreams and a passion for drawing. Hopes to one day direct her own animated movie. Very observant and cares deeply about others.

NOAH - 30 to 50 years old, all ethnicities man. Former soldier aboard the Coast Starlight. Wise and has a strong moral compass. Tough exterior and rough around the edges. Burdened with memories of his past and focused on surviving the present one day at a time.

ANNA - 30 to 50 years old, all ethnicities woman. Well-dressed and well put-together, but looks like she hasn’t slept in a day or two. Navigating the death of her brother. Deeply caring of others, and will go out of her way to help those around her. Motivated by the love she has for her children and wife.

ED - 30 to 50 years old, all ethnicities man. Disheveled business man aboard the Coast Starlight. Lives a repetitive boring life. Broken inside but keeps going for his kids. Can get aggressive when he drinks, which is often.
