A Jew, a Muslim, and a Christian walk into a bar… and write a podcast dramedy about a woman Messiah.
This one’s a new one for me. It’s actually a scripted podcast written with my good friends and frequent co-conspirators – I mean collaborators – Misha Euceph and Rachel Callman. We never thought much about each other’s background because our commonalities transcended religion. But together, we wondered what would happen if one of the most powerful religious roles reserved in history was bestowed upon a flawed, confused millennial woman like any one of us. We dove into our own religious experiences, the history, and the cannon, exploring how gender politics, religious wars, the prevalence of social media and the self-care culture would impact the second coming. And how a 28 year-old “spiritual but not religious” Echo Park resident’s normal friends and normal problems could become the moral compass of the modern world.
I wrote a new short! Excited to keep workshopping it and hope to shoot it this summer.
Speaking of workshopping, I got the opportunity to perform with an amazing organization called Club B.Y.O.S.S. They want to bring writers and filmmakers together to celebrate short scripts with the belief that scripts shouldn’t have to be produced in order for the story to be shared. The written piece alone is worth an audience!
See below some pics from the event and info about the short!
