Behind the ScenesEdit
Rayanne auditions for the part of Emily in the Pulitzer-Prize winning play "Our Town" written by Thornton Wilder and first produced in 1938. In this tale of life, love and death (as the names of the three acts indicate), the character of fourteen year-old Emily is the opposite of Rayanne: sweet and innocent, a top student at school engaged to a doctor's son. When we see her again nine years later, Emily has just died in childbirth but lingers to say goodbye to the things she loved. At the end of the episode, Rayanne gives a moving performance of Emily's farewell monologue, a performance she claims is based on her imitation of Angela for her purity and kindness. The character Tough Guy was played by Josh Gummersall who is Devon Gummersall's brother.
