  • Victorian Stillness

    Jeanne’s expansive Upstate New York property, complete with a picturesque Victorian farmhouse, has been in her family since 1808. She hopes to pass the property down to her young grandson, Oscar, but, unfortunately, it’s the end of an era. The land faces enormous economic and societal problems, and as Jeanne ages, she finds herself at the mercy of a younger and unreliable workforce. Realizing her predicament, Jeanne must resort to hiring caretakers.


    Unqualified, entitled, and manipulative, Lez and Rudge move upstate from New York City to become Jeanne’s supposed safety net. To Oscar, they represent the decay of modern society. And throughout their tenure as property managers, Oscar sees his pride in the land become hate for those who want to take advantage of it. Told through the lens of a satirically strange modern landscape, Victorian Stillness delves deeply into the life and death of an American property.

  • Hell of Hosanna

    Imagine the Empire State Building removed from New York City. Imagine that building reconstructed brick-by-brick on your father’s private island-the trappings of the past stolen from the public to indulge unfettered hypocrisy. This is James’s defeated and ravaged landscape when his father, Fep Anglish, successfully monopolizes all forms of industry into one perfect company called U atop the collapse of the old world.

    Ownership becomes a thing of the past. Now, anyone can have anything-temporarily. Is this hosanna? Maybe on paper. But to James, the “rent and move on” lifestyle is a total hell. And in this hell, his impossible dream of becoming something fuels his transience and passivity.

    This is reality until one strange day, when the whole thing comes tumbling down on itself and James finally gets the opportunity to break away. In a U space shuttle, he travels to the ultimate unknown in boundless space.

    Freedom, finally? The real hosanna?
