SEEKING:

HANA – [MUSLIM, EARLY 20’s] The fiery and confrontational Bridesmaid of Sarah. She might play nice in front of her beloved soon to be married friend, but she’s a true mean girl to Du’aa. Although fashion forward, and confident, she’ll stop at nothing to ridicule and gaslight Du’aa.

FARAH – [MUSLIM, EARLY 20’s] the second bridesmaid of Sarah. Alongside Hana, she is intimidating, sarcastic, and extremely insensitive when it comes to Du’aa. She might pretend like she has it all together but underneath her strong personality is a tacky wanna-be.
