RIPTIDE (4m)*


It's Labor Day weekend. George and Nathan have just purchased their first home together, a house in Fire Island Pines. Their celebratory getaway is halted when George's ex-, the brilliant and handsome Daniel appears on the beach. Old wounds are opened and sexual boundaries are pushed to the limit as Bash, Daniel's new young love interest, shows up, challenging everyone to question their relationships, as well as their own definition of what love -- and commitment -- is.*

Two New Yorkers gripped by trauma while the city is having one of its own: the 2003 blackout. Reclusive novelist Hugo Thomas hasn’t written anything in years. After accepting an advance for a new book, he’s assigned a beguiling yet challenging young junior editor to assist him at his downtown apartment who may not be all that he seems.

QUIET ELECTRICITY (2w)*

An O'Neill semifinalist in 2017, Quiet Electricity is a tense portrait of intimacy. Six months after tragedy has struck them, married couple Jodie and Dana now have little to say to one another. When the power in their Hoboken apartment building is temporarily shut off in the evenings for rewiring, they are forced to spend their nights together in the dark. A simple game of confessions unearths truths and hidden feelings, leading Jodie and Dana to epiphanies about love, sex and marriage.

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY (4m, 2w)*



In an era when social media, human transparency and blurring of sexual boundaries are ever-present, The Picture of Dorian Gray has prophetically become a thesis statement for a new generation. A pure soul ultimately destroyed by an obsession with self-image, Dorian Gray’s infatuating charms radically poison all of London by way of a Faustian pact to remain young and beautiful. Adapted from the Novel by Oscar Wilde.
