Sex with a Mathematician

Written By Pete Barry

Directed by Meghan Woodby

Two mathematical geniuses: Sara, a rebellious instigator, and Nikolai, a straight-laced actuary, challenge stereotypes and the online algorithm that set them up.

Sara: 20’s-30’s; completely defies stereotypes. She works in a think tank, but looks she works in a tattoo parlor. Sara is independent and stubborn and is cynical about love.

Nikolai: 25-35; a nerdy actuary that sees himself as classy, even though he owns a Blackberry. Nikolai is a wizard with numbers and he thinks he’s got Sara figured out.

Justine/Justin: 20s; friendly, hardworking. Knows his/her customers well. Loves a good laugh to get through a shift.

This Quintessence of Dust

Written By Cory Hinkle

Directed by Micah Houghtalin

 

A dark-comedy about that time when Jane went on vacation to Los Angeles to meet up with friends, but in a moment of weakness had coffee with her ex-boyfriend, Chip. . .and then the end of the world happened.

JANE: early 20’s―late 20’s, (a little too) ambitious and focused on her career; but that all comes to a halt. Pretends she’s happy with the apocalypse, but is extremely fearful of what happens next.

CHIP: early 20’s―late 20’s, Jane’s ex-boyfriend, practical, smart. He genuinely cares about Jane.

HENRY: early 20’s―late 20’s, Jane’s exuberant ex-boyfriend, more successful in acting than Chip… but was a slave to a group of cannibals.

 

Shades

Written By Mark Harvey Levine

Directed by Alex Kaiser

 

John, a “man’s man,” loves sports more than art. He has been dating Freda, his fun but cynical girlfriend. When Rick, a pessimistic artist, enters the picture Freda finds him intriguing. With each repeating scene, we peel back the lawyers of each relationship, revealing the primal core in all of us.

John – 20’s-40’s; dull and inspired by art. John loves sports and is dating Freda.

Freda – 20’s-30’s; Freda is a fun, but cynical person. She’s dating John, but is bored by his predictability. Rick brings spontaneity into her life.

Rick – 20’s-30’s; artistic and pessimistic. Rick works full time as an artist, and takes it seriously.
