REAL DRAG – Short Film | In Development for Streaming Series
A straight cis-gender woman wants to join the drag crew of the local gay bar, but faces rejection from all sides. Can she prove to the queens that she's as fabulous as they are? Better yet, can she prove it to herself? Written and Directed by Brad Davis, Produced and starring Lawryn LaCroix.
Four mismatched queer strangers -- an aspiring novelist, an hardworking immigrant, a divorced dad, and a seriously sexy newcomer -- have lucked into their dream Manhattan apartment. But when the rent skyrockets out of reach, there’s simply no option…it’s time to move. To an (even) smaller place, to the suburbs, or God help us, home to Indiana with Mom and Dad. Or…hatch a plan. Welcome to EXTRA ROOM, a comic meditation on living close, set in the capital of tiny living, New York City. How will our roommates keep the home of their dreams? Get creative. Yeah sure, New York is the city that never sleeps…but when you’re packed sardine-tight on the A train, working endless shifts at dead-end jobs, running on treadmills and surfing dead-end apps, the American Dream is hard to come by. Like the women of Sex and the City and Insecure, the twentysomethings of Friends and Living Single, and the housemates of Golden Girls and Three’s Company, our intrepid crew -- which includes a multicultural mix of hairy bears, aspiring musicians, genderfluid pastry chefs, social media climbers, LatinX powertops, and corn-fed twinks from Kansas --learns that life gets better when we do it together.
Sinners is a passionate love story about Layla, a University professor in an unnamed Muslim country who is denounced for an affair with her former student, Nur, and is awaiting to be stoned to death for adultery. The play examines both Layla's and Nur’s choices for love and survival and the thriving for freedom in a patriarchal culture. Nur can save his own life by throwing the first stone. What choice will he make? Josh Sobol's acclaimed play manages to evoke a universal dialogue about male and female roles that question stereotypes not only in Muslim society but across the board. Starring Nicole Ansari, Directed by Brian Cox, Produced by Lawryn LaCroix and Jayne Baron Sherman and written by Joshua Sobel.
