Ryan Scully (Emporia, KS)

Life is nothing but a serious of flickers, little flashes of clarity. It’s in these moments we see our true selves. Until finally we have enough to be whole. Sometimes all the pieces can’t be found on their own, and the person who helps you find them may not be what you expected. This new original play by Ryan Scully follows two guys who meet for no special reason, but have an impact that will go much further than either one of them realize. World premiere. 60m R flickeratkcfringe.weebly.com
