343 UNION STREET – COMEDY SET IN BROOKLYN

Gary and C.J. are just two regular guys from Brooklyn who, inspired by the hot day and the beer they’re drinking, decide that they are going to write a play. C.J.’s friend, Holly is currently in a play which to all accounts sound terrible, and they’re convinced that they could write something at least a little better than that one in this comedy set in Brooklyn.

After all, who knows what inspiration may just walk around the corner? For example, there’s Vinny, the ex boxer who lives in the same building. He went out every night and got beat up , just so he could support his sisters.  That’s a great story.  And how about the creepy old lady who lives in the building? She’s got to be known as “Killer” for a reason.  And the homeless guy on the corner? Rumor has it he’s the landlord’s brother and had it not been for a little incident, he would have been the landlord and not his brother. Plenty of material there!

Or they could just go to the store for more beer…

UNCOVERED – ROMANTIC DRAMA SCRIPT

A man and woman have been living together in a small Chicago apartment. She has been working to pay the bills while he works on a novel, but he’s developed writer’s block, and it’s been eating away at his confidence, and lessening her attraction to him. The rift has gotten to the point where she’s been spending most of her time at a friend’s place.
He goes to see her at work and watches her in a different light as she floats around her restaurant interacting with the customers. Then they go out for drinks, and their passion is rekindling.

We hear them as they ascend the stairs to their apartment, bumping against the walls as they release from each other’s embrace long enough to unlock the door.

Inside we watch as they work out their relationship, one that began with a mutual love of books, one helped to be put back together – and almost taken further apart – by the books in their life.
