Jennifer Who Is Leaving Things to Do in Downtown Sarasota October 2024 November 2024 Decem

Nan is working the night shift at Dunkin, fielding frequent calls from her husband, who needs help finding…everything. Meanwhile, Jennifer is doing her best to ignore Joey, the aging patient wearing down her…patience. At the same time, Lili is overwhelmed by the looming pressure of the SAT exam and her father’s insistence that she go to work the night before the test.


Set in a lonely Dunkin Donuts alongside a Massachusetts highway, JENNIFER WHO IS LEAVING poignantly and humorously captures the demands placed on women, delving into the physical, emotional, and mental toll of caregiving–and the moments that push us to the edge.

Astronaut Molly Jennis has embarked on an interplanetary expedition following her husband’s tragic, failed attempt to reach Mars. As the first to the Red Planet, she faces not only the dangers of solitude and the unknown frontier, but also the haunting reflections of her past decisions.


SPACEMAN is a weightless, full-sensory, surround-sound exploration of both the challenges of space travel and the uncharted future that awaits Molly at her Martian destination.

Inspired by true accounts of the plight of captured and detained journalists and aid workers, NO ONE IS FORGOTTEN is a story about intimacy, surrender, and the will to live for someone else.
