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 new-roomie Graham to the Ottobar. Rejection, new alliances and fresh frustration continue to pull apart this unraveling company.
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".
