VISITORS by Anthony Marinelli
An attractive young couple meets thru a dating app called Visitors that provides 24 access to all participants. In a world where watching has become more important than doing, has narcissism finally become the new normal?
 
 
WELCOME TO NARNIA by Jessica Marie Fisher
WELCOME TO NARNIA is the coming out story for people who are tired of unnecessarily dramatic and unrealistic coming out stories. Almost nobody “KNOWS” completely what their sexuality is – most people have to find the answers through trial and error. “Narnia” is the story of the messy and gross “figuring it out,” and all that comes with it. Lauren and Liam navigate love, sex, family, identity and the sticky in-betweens of queer adolescence.
 
A BEAUTIFUL MOURNING by Stephen J. Ryan
Featuring: David Risely, Lynda Browing, Katie Schrader and Fred Grieco
Harold is at his mother Abigail’s funeral. She is being buried at Brooklyn Cemetery located near a bustling intersection and elevated train. While saying goodbye, he discovers that some endings are just beginnings, as he hears her from beyond the grave.
 
 
LEAVES by Victor Vauban Jr.
