CAST OF CHARACTERS
Christopher Boone (Male 15+). Christopher Boone is an English teenager who is an outsider due to his unique perception of the world, which he sees in surprising and revealing ways. He notices things in minute detail yet has difficulty understanding social and emotional cues and difficulty empathizing with others. From a diagnostic point of view, he is probably on the autism spectrum and exhibits some behavior that might be characterized as having Asperger’s Syndrome, though what is most important is that he is different. Deeply intelligent and sensitive. He must be physically very fit and agile. English accent.
Ed Boone/Others (Male 35-55). Christopher’s father; estranged from his wife, Judy and struggling as a single parent trying to raise his son the best he can. A working class man.
