Director's Statement

Five years ago, I read a short play on New Play Exchange by Chicago playwright Calamity West. It was a story of two estranged women, reuniting in a diner. I was struck by the way the script portrayed the women as full, nuanced characters — full of contradiction, like we all are. It is sadly rare to find depictions of women that are crafted with so much care. In 2017, I finally directed the play for a theater festival. Now knowing the play better, it occurred to me that I could do this delicate, intimate story more justice if it were a film. With Calamity’s blessing, I set about building a team of film and theater artists in Chicago to bring it to life, prioritizing women on every level of production.
