We're making a movie!

trillian_stars and I are making a movie. We wrote an original adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House set to take place in 2020 during lockdown.

The Kickstarter for it is here. We'd love it if you signed up to get a copy of the movie for $15 and we'd also love it if you'd share with your friends.

COVID-19 shut down the theater industry overnight. Venues closed their doors, laid off workers and actors put their careers on hold. We knew that the power of theater was something sorely needed during quarantine when we seek intimate connections, powerful stories and shared experiences with others. So in April of 2020 we started planning a transition; thinking of theatrical performances we could still do utilizing the skills and technology we had access to to bring timeless stories to audiences. What if we could take the production of Ibsen's A Doll's House that we were planning on performing and adapt it to take place not in 1879, but in 2020? What if we could view our limitations as challenges?

Watch the trailer here

This movie version of Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House is set during the middle of the COVID19 pandemic. Ibsen's story of a woman awakening in and breaking out from an oppressive world translates well to our time. This original adaptation puts Nora, Torvald, Dr. Rank, Krogstad and Christine Linde in lockdown as they try to lead their lives against a background of isolation, infection, heartbreak and survival. While this takes place in a Zoom-like environment, it's not filmed on Zoom, but is a fully realized production filmed in HD and edited by award-winning filmmaker Anna Gamarnik. Anna has created a virtual environment both similar to and better than the ones we're used to, in order to create the best experience for the viewer.

The original soundtrack was written by British singer/songwriter Jo Beth Young (

Thanks everybody. Hope to see you all on the other side of this pandemic.
