“Sit down, George. There’s something I need to tell you.”

Aspiring actress Léa struggles to make a name for herself in New York City while working a dead-end day job at a Queens bowling alley. Despite the death of her fish, the cold shoulder from her boyfriend, an embarrassing encounter with an old acquaintance, and a boss who thinks her performances are less than convincing, she’s convinced that today’s audition will make or break her career. When she finally gets in front of the director, will Léa choke? Or will she land the part of a lifetime?

Directed by Connor Simpson. Principal Cast: Dominique Johnson, Eric Reis, Lawrence Frank, David Gibson, and Joseph Midyett.
