NEW JOB, CAN’T WAIT! by Jason Iannone

£6.00

Fiona, Layla, and Leo are not the doctor, carpenter, and lawyer they were hired to be. But they do know how to take advantage of a seemingly easy mark. Unfortunately for them, the mark knows their game and would much rather play his own. This is what happens when cons get conned.

Description

CHARACTERS

Franklin/Aretha: ​A weird, mysterious, wealthy, and seemingly gullible loner who’s hired three hustlers/cons to handle important tasks for him. Mid ’50s

Fiona/Lionel:​ A “doctor” who makes up BS diagnoses and fills phony prescriptions. She mainly sells sick/feral/lost/petnapped cats and dogs while passing them off as healthy purebreds to dumb rich people. Mid ’30s

Layla/Eric:​ A “carpenter” who uses the cheapest materials around and does work quickly, while charging for the best materials and full-time work and pocketing the difference. Her main hustle is as a casting director for various sham acting/modeling jobs. Mid ’20s

Leo/Kate:​ A “lawyer” who has no license and barely understands the law. He’s also a sex worker who (unwillingly) attracts nothing but old, decrepit, and unhygienic clients. Early ’40s

Officer:​ A rookie cop. Mid 20s

All roles can be gender-swapped. They are written with one specific name but either one works
