GOLDEN ACRES

Written by Ryan Coleman
Directed by Shane Torres
Produced by Marah Archer

When his son deserts him on their plans for a birthday steak dinner, Paul Hudson, a young-spirited and independent older man, decides to take matters into his hands. Sick of being forgotten and treated like a decrepit old man, Paul and his dementia stricken companion, Chefsy, bust out of their retirement home for a night on the town.

LAST SPRING

Written by PJ Norton
Directed by Eliot John Hagen
Produced by Michael Duni

A year after the death of their son, Tim and Julia struggle to connect in the midst of their mourning.  Tim works to leave the past behind, while Julia clings to her grief and refuses to look towards the future.  In an attempt to help Julia cope with the loss, Tim propels the couple into a series of social encounters that force them to address the distance that has grown between them and acknowledge validity of each other’s grief.

FOUR BITCHES AND A GUN

Written by Will Mattimoe
Directed by Amy Fox
Produced by Olivia Blackwell and Autumn Dea

Shannon and Lucretia’s typically boring day working at a gas station is
interrupted by the arrival of Sarah and Julia, two wealthy girls with car trouble.
Tension ensues as personalities clash,  and the girls must find strength
in one another to survive something  more dangerous than racial differences.
A young man from Lucretia’s past who is desperate to get out of town, decides
to hold up the gas station.  Will the girls make it out unharmed?  Will Lucretia’s
Blow-Pop habit bring her harm?  Find out in the new comedy from VCUarts
Cinema, Four Bitches and a Gun (Four BAG).

THE ROSE OF JERICHO

Written by Eileen Halpin
Directed by PJ Norton

Thank you so much to David Missall and Chris Spahr from Sennheiser for coming in to teach a masterclass in sound production yesterday!
