‘Then Again’ is a retrospective coming of age/drama set in the present day. Becca, 26, heartbroken, an only child, comes back to her family home after a lengthy (and turbulent) relationship; she is greeted by her widowed mother with open arms. After being away from home for so long, she tries to reconnect with her old self, and in the process thinks back to a long-term friendship she previously lost. Through the experience of her memories, and her mother’s memories, she begins to piece together where she went wrong 6 years prior.
Roles (14)

 Becca (Gender: Female)

25, heartbroken, regretful. ‘Then Again’ follows Becca, our protagonist, navigate her way around her past, and we begin to understand the relationship she has with her adolescent years. After breaking up with her long-term problematic boyfriend she returns home to get her head straight and to try and remember where she was going before the relationship turned sour. At first, she spends all her energy trying to ignore the past as if it never happened, but throughout the film she begins to understand that the past is concrete and instead of ignoring she should accept it. Her relationship with her Mum is on the mend, but she finds it hard to
open up when their views on the past are so vastly different.

 Lauren (Gender: Female)

Childhood friend of Becca, Lauren is the right-hand woman throughout their whole teenage life. However, as their last summer of schooling together draws to a close, she begins to worry about where their relationship will go. Cracks are already forming in what seemed to be an inseparable bond, but she still stays loyal to herself and Becca, even if she doesn’t always feel like this is reciprocated. She is bubbly, spontaneous and witty, but can sometimes overthink the little things and come across prudent in social situations.
