While preparing for a quiet evening at her country home, a woman’s evening is interrupted by an unexpected visitor and ends in a very surprising way.
Shannon Beeby (Gwen Rutherford) – Growing up on the Gulf Coast in Pensacola, Florida, and persuading the neighborhood kids to partake in weeks long improvised dramas, Shannon knew from a very young age that her calling was to “play make believe”. After graduating with a BFA in Acting from the Conservatory of the University of Central Florida, she honed in on her attraction to film and moved to Brooklyn with her fellow actor husband, Ryan. Shannon has been a part of numerous short films screened at festivals internationally, and takes great joy in the collaborative and communal experience of film-making. Shannon studies dance, and loves improvised composition – aka. ” Let Go, and let it Flow!!”
Lance R. Marshall (Dennis Talbot) – Creativity is just as important to the life of Lance as food or water. It feeds him in a way that nothing else can. It has shaped Lance’s life starting in his childhood where he spent numerous hours a day on a trampoline acting out his favorite cartoons and movies with is own new creative twist added to them. Then continuing on into his adult life where he performed in countless plays at theaters in Texas and New York and later switching gears to films. Lance thrives off the energy he gets from working with other creative talent.
