24-year old Eshana Patel has every reason to be afraid. She is nearly killed while going to work one day. The Hangman promises to punish the person who hurt her, but frames another man in his place. With the town divided and the gallows raised, can Eshana speak up for her neighbour before more innocent blood is spilled?
THE HANGMAN / JOHN CAMPBELL ($800)
The titular villain of the story is an imposing Caucasian man 50-70 years old. We are looking for an actor who is unusually tall and/or willing to wear painter's stilts (or platform shoes) to exaggerate his height. The Hangman is a malevolent authoritarian who claims to represent law and order but who secretly harbours more sinister motivations. He exploits his position of authority to incite chaos.
ESHANA PATEL ($1100)
Eshana is a fit and attractive woman in her 20s. She is an active, outgoing and kind person whose life is upended by a traumatic life-altering assault. She is forced to confront her own fear and resentment after the Hangman exploits her misfortune to incite conflict in the town. We are accepting applicants from all ethnicities and are prepared to modify the character description accordingly.
RAKSHA PATEL ($200)
Raksha is a Middle-aged woman (40-60 years old) and the mother of our lead protagonist. She is a caring person with conservative leaning values, a no-nonsense attitude and isn't afraid of expressing her opinions.

We are accepting applicants from all ethnicities and are prepared to modify the character description accordingly.
