BARRED – SHORT ONE ACT COMEDY-DRAMA
In this short one act, a girl is kicked out of a bar, and a hopeful older guy tries to pick her up. But she is fickle, like many young girls, and intentionally, or unintentionally leads the hopeful guy along. All for a cigarette…
A short comedy-drama great for character development as an actor.
