Genre: Short
Director(s): Amy Grappell
5 min

This performance is weaker

than it was expected,

and in light of the...

...crisis, the housing market

never fully recovered

from the downturn.

Many buyers are worried

that home prices

will keep falling even further.

The real difficulties

of the problem

are tight lending standards

put in place

in the wake of

record foreclosures.

Forecasters have

predicted sales

in existing homes nationwide...

Come here, girl!

Come on!

Nice arm.

You know...

The latest victim in a rash

of home invasions in the area

will be home from

the hospital today.

A statement made

by the family...

Since when do they

start calling burglaries

home invasions?

I just have it on

for the weather.

They say the storm's

coming up from the Caribbean.

They always say that.

The whole side of

the house is exposed.

How's the writing?


- Yeah?

- Yeah.

You're late, Mr. Gavin.

Come on!

It's so bright.

She still watching you?


You should really

say something.

Well, I don't want

to make any trouble.

She's an old woman.

You're so polite.

You know, people mistake

good manners for being weak.

You're gonna make Leo late.

Okay, what else, you guys?

Hysteria, repression.

What else you got?

Katelyn? Gabe? Nothing?

Thank you.



Aren't we making a mistake

discussing the

psychosexual element

to the exclusion

of everything else?

We're ignoring the

underlying political tensions.

Such as?

Well, the Royal Charter,

for one thing.

The king nullified

the colonists' land claims

the same year the trials began.


People got paranoid.

It's like, imagine if suddenly

your next-door neighbors

could lay claim to

your parents' backyard.

They'd freak.


So, what the colonists

had assumed was theirs

is suddenly called

into question, and...

People always look

for the easiest scapegoat

when their sense of

entitlement is threatened.

That's a rather

bleak outlook, isn't it?

We are talking about a species

that would tie

one of its own to a stake

and strike a match.


All right, you guys.

We'll finish this up next week.

If you guys could

bring in that scene

from Mary Warren and Elizabeth,

I'd really appreciate it.


I'm gonna be late for calculus.

You were late for my class.

- You okay?

- Yeah.

Hey, Jason?

I almost forgot...

the new light board arrived.

Will I see you after rehearsal?

I don't know.

Um... I have a test tomorrow,


Hey, Leo.



Why aren't we married?


I mean, it's... it's legal,

for now... here, anyway.

You really want to have

this conversation now?

- Really?

- Mm-hmm.



Oh, my God...

Um... Obviously, I think

we should have the right.

Uh, yeah. Obviously.

I just think that the

institution itself, of marriage,

it's... a failed experiment.

How many good marriages

do we know?

Okay, yes.

We've been together

longer than your parents.

We're not

talking about other people.

It's a cop-out.

Well, the statistics

speak for themselves.

They do.

Okay, okay, fine.

I think that a lot of couples

feel that they have

to get married

just to try to fix

their problems.

Well, what kind of problems?

I don't know... insecurities...


Are you bored?

With you?


Are you happy?

That's an awfully

big question, isn't it?


What? What is it?


I can't see you... there.

I can't see you standing

up in front of everybody,

standing up in front of

all of our friends,

and actually making that...


Sometimes I don't know if...

if I'm okay with that anymore.

Well, the problem

is underneath.
