Loitering with Intent

Synopsis: Two male actors/close friends want to jumpstart their careers. They end up making a big shot producer think that they have a hot script that everyone wants to get their hands on. The 2 men then drive to upstate New York and hole up in a family member's country home- with 10 dedicated days to write said script. Dominic and Raphael then get derailed by a beautiful gardener, Ava and Dominic's sister, Gigi. Both women appear at the house, which was supposed to be serene enough to focus on the task at hand. But to add to the problems, Gigi's boyfriend Wayne arrives, still suffering from PTSD, and his brother Devon as well, creating even more havoc. A looming deadline and complicated personal histories create scenes that are humorous and emotional.

Ooh yeah

Oh shit. Hey man, I gotta get to

Brooklyn, I gotta get to work,

open the bar, I gotta work on

this audition for the morning.

What're you going in on?

Now is this scene before or

after you saw your own leg off?

I've seen slaves breaking their

backs in the fields. Have you?

Pardon me, pardon me, I'm very sorry. No, we

should head out. We gotta be there at four.

That's enough, from both of you.

And you... wait. That's enough.

We need you up there, kid.

I'll be right up.

Brother, prepping an audition or doing an

audition, or resting from an audition.

You can never commit,

because you never know,

you might get a job,

but you never do get a job.

Sorry, but you don't.

Okay, who needs what?

These three here,

we need two Ripostos one Fellini.

I don't know what he wants, and that

freak down there, I'm not certain.

Oh shit, is that Raphael?

I was a gay on the Woody Allen movie you did.

I'm gonna be right with you. Just kidding.

I knew you had a small part

but you were great.

Thought you were

gonna be huge!

What happened?

When I headed for that door I realized

if I went out, I would never come back.

I didn't want to never come back

but I couldn't come back out

onto the stage, so

there wasn't anything left

so I went up the ladder.

You're The King.

The King. You're Joe Strummer.

- I'm Joe Strummer.

- You're a sonic producer.

I'm a sonic producer!

I think I liked it. If you don't mind

I wanna sit for the second scene.

Sure, no.

What you did, really good.

Really good.

Very good, thanks.

I don't know what else to tell you.

You're in an age void.

Would you like a Peroni?

I want you to change your attitude, chief.

I want you to ask me again,

and this time, with a smile.

Go f*ck yourself!

Get the f*ck out!

Yeah, we will get the f*ck out of here!

Look at me, look at me.

Dude I can't do this anymore.

I'm gonna fucking kill someone.

- In an age void.

- What?

They don't know what to do with me.

That's the problem.

Look, it's Lincoln Center.

It's a cultural superstore.

It's white boy business, I mean, you

getting that part is a long shot, come on!

Well what's the point then, Raph?

Please, tell me,

I mean it's the same five directors,

the same 10 writers, the same 20 actors,

they just do everything! It's not good

for theaters, it's fucking boring.

Look, it's a tight circle,

we're not part of it.

You know the days of Joe Papp, off the

street, the living theater, that's done!

Who's off the street?

I'm trained, well trained.

- I know you're trained.

- I went to conservatory!

Yeah but you didn't go to Juilliard, and

that's what this is all about, right?

What big shows you were in,

who saw you do it,

my dad is Edward Albee,

all that kind of stuff.

- Edward Albee doesn't have kids.

- I know.

- He's gay.

- Doesn't mean he doesn't have kids.

- But he doesn't.

- Hey, Dom! Who's this, your pimp?

Hey, how you doing, what a sight!

You look fantastic. Look who

it is, Kaplan!

Hey don't mind us.

We were running a scene right now...

I can't believe I'm running into you maniacs,

you guys have been on my mind all week!

- Was it in a naughty way?

- Take it easy.

It's always a little naughty

with you, Raphael.

Tell us the less naughty parts for now.

All right. That was an amazing

night at your bar last month.

We've had so many amazing nights

at the bar with you, Kaplan.

No, we were talking movies with

your writer friend, Jonathan.

- You had those leather pants on!

- We love those pants.

Wasn't Jonathan talking about doing some low

budget Raymond Chandler detective story thing?
