See Me

In See Me, ALINA speaks to her cat Rosie after multiple rejections from drama school because she doesn’t have anyone else she can open up to.

ALINA: I didn’t get in, they’ve rejected me again. The drama school I’ve been wantin’ to go to since forever. I know I’m not perfect, I know I’m different to the other kids that audition and get in. Their posture is always perfect, mine is awful and I’ve got this cockney accent that’s embedded itself into my brain, can’t get rid of it. I’ve auditioned three times now, and once again, here is the rejection letter…

(beat)

…I don’t know what more I can do, wish they knew how much I care. I needed this, I needed it to happen, would’ve kept me out of trouble for a while, an’ at least then I’d be given some kinda guidance, you know?

People think I’m mad Rosie, they laugh at the idea of even thinkin’ about being an actor…their dreams are small but I know I’ve got somethin’ to give. I’m not perfect and I’m not sayin’ that I have some Godly gift to offer either, I just can’t believe that there is anythin’ else out there that I can do…cause there’s nothin’ else to me, is there?

I’ve tried doing other things but everything else feels lifeless.
