Chapel Off Chapel- Melbourne, Australia (2013) Helen, a women approximately in her late 20’s, is an overweight librarian, or “printed-word specialist.” Her kind-hearted nature and goofy personality attracts Tom. Helen is comfortable in her own skin and has high self-confidence. She enjoys war movies and has a cute laugh. Production History Part Two Rosie Attiyeh Carter works with Tom, though he never seems to be doing any work. He has a demeaning sense of humor and narcissistic attitude which often leaves Tom questioning their friendship. Carter is a shallow womanizer whose ways infuriate Jeannie but seem to make Tom self-conscious about his relationship with Helen. Leading up to the office scene Tom has a huge fight with Jeannie. Tom insinuates that Jeannie is an insane/ stalker while he lies about the date he had with Helen to her. This obviously infuriates Jeannie (Tom's bitter ex) and she storms out of Tom’s office, leaving an angry Tom and Carter, who was watching and enjoying, the whole fight. In the scene Carter reveals his experiences with his overweight mother, and how she constantly embarrassed him. As Carter speaks Tom starts to get perspective on his own relationship with Helen eventually leading to the questioning of his own character as he wonders- am I any better than Carter? The two's heart-to-heart comes quickly to an end when carter reverts back to his old ways. Leaving Tom even angry than when the scene began. Katie (Carter) and Rosie (Tom) Another co-worker at Tom's unnamed office firm. She and Tom used to date, but Tom was never fully committed to the relationship. Jeannie's self-confidence is damaged because Tom dumps her for a "fat girl". Tom and Helen are falling more and more in love. Helen is offered a better job in another town but she doesn’t want to leave Tom. She asks if she can meet his friends, when he is hesitant, she knows that he is ashamed of her. But not wanting to give her that impression he tells her that she will meet his friends when they have a work barbecue on the beach. The day arrives for the outing, but once they get there they are secluded from everyone. Helen brings up her concerns and gives him an ultimatum, either accept all of her and that includes defending her to his friends, or this cannot work. He replies that he cannot handle it and that she should take the job in the other town and both are left broken hearted. Caitlin (Helen) and Imani (Tom) Katie Furstoss Caitlin Cervac Imani Davis
