San Juan. Last night. As the government raids the offices of a “Health and Wellness” company accused of being a pyramid scheme, three of their top recruiters converge in an upscale hotel room. Faced with an oncoming hurricane of bad press and falling fortunes, a critical decision must be reached; honour their loyalties and stay on with a sinking ship, let go of their lucrative careers and attempt a normal life, or make the leap to the next “multi-level marketing opportunity” to repeat the cycle again. As accusations fly and the minibar is emptied of all liquor, their nigh-impenetrable mindset of positive thinking is set to collide with brutal reality… and no-one will walk away unscathed.
Was lucky enough to sit down with a group of fine actors to have a first read of the new play JUICE, which we hope to bring to a stage in Vancouver early next year. The feedback and notes provided were invaluable to its continued development, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing what director Keltie Brown-Forsyth does with the material. For more information on my collaborators for this upcoming project, you can check them out at their company website.
