Whole New World

Whole New World

It’s the (near?) future, and some people are being rounded up and sent to an unknown fate. Jo meets with lover Matty in a secret location, bringing food for Matty’s in-hiding family. The risks are increasing, and no one knows who will be the next victim – or the next oppressor. They grapple with who to trust and whether it's time to leave – when an old acquaintance puts their future in jeopardy.  Now a screenplay!

Greetings from the Cape!

Middle-aged and feeling it, Margie arrives at the family beach cottage, hoping to reconnect with her increasingly inscrutable kids and spark some romance with her less-than-inspiring boyfriend.  Plans are disrupted after ex-husband, Alex, and his male fiancé arrive unexpectedly, along with their dyspeptic and heard-but-never-seen dog, Chewy.  When they all must share accommodations, old grievances surface – along with more than a few hilarious eccentricities.  Can the characters heal past wounds, break down the walls that separate them, and learn to live – and love - again?

Tapped Out

Former troublemaker Manny is trying to revitalize a working-class, neighborhood bar – and also reinvent himself. Despite his efforts to “go legit,” he finds it difficult to resist the lure of the underworld.  So when new waitress Janine proposes a partnership, the offer is enticing on many levels.  Unfortunately,  Manny’s wise-cracking friend, Tucker, is dead-set against the plans that threaten his way of life.  The three characters are linked by their pasts - and their secrets.  Can Manny overcome the obstacles that threaten his success or will his dreams be thwarted by his own pride and recklessness?
