Baltimore. Friends. Artists.
Baltimore, Friends, Artists. In BFA, four college graduates are trying to find their niche in the Baltimore theatre scene when Ryan, a friendly nemesis from school, returns home after a successful stint in "the biz."
Big. F*cking. Asshole.
The next morning after Ryan Lerchman's return to Baltimore, he wakes up in theatre company Stick People's home/performance/rehearsal/everything space.
Boardgames. Feuds. Awshit!
Rules for being in a small theatre company:
1. Compare life to a strategic board game.
2. Have someone around who will mess with your head.
3. Apply and receive small grants.
4. Develop a crush on the wrong person.
BooShetta. Fumes. Awkward.
What do drag queens and grindr have in common? While an awkward romance blossoms, Sarah uncovers a revealing bit of Ryan's baggage, throwing her and Sam into an even stickier situation.
He stole all of their free cupcakes. In a butchered blind date, Sarah tries to entertain Roger Eggwit, a guy who just. doesn't. get it. Foodie pizza can't save them.
Beer. Flight. Awesome. (The Party)
It is not a Stick People Benefit. After the mugging, Sarah arrives at her own house party, thrown by Ryan and Andy. It's on.
Blocked! Funny! Alliance.
Sam's wayward play "Bruised Apple" gets a hard diagnosis from a big-wig theater and the girls realize again that some doors won't open. Julia and Sam conspire to encourage Sarah to make amends with Andy, sending her and Graham to the Ottobar.
Bluesy Frantic Actors
Sam gets a mischievous casting idea while she struggles to write her play. Hours later/the next morning, the Stick People + Graham tour the Chicken Box on North Avenue, the "perfect" space for "Bruised Apple".
Bully. Folly. Ache.
As Sarah interrogates Andy, Sam makes a deal with Ryan and solidifies the new twist to her "one-woman show", while Graham gets a heavy threat from his mother that pushes Julia to play hard.
