The Philadelphia by David Ives; directed by Michele A. Mascari
Celebrates and mocks how we cope with negativity and everyday hardship in the City of Brotherly Love. Two guys meet in a diner in New York, but they’re both in very different states of mind. Al is in a Los Angeles state of mind where nothing can faze him and, even if it did, he would just make it a Hollywood movie. Mark finds the whole world is against him. He can’t get a newspaper at the newsstand, aspirin at the drugstore and the diner gives him a cheesesteak when he wants a burger. He is trapped in a Philadelphia state of mind. It could be worse. You could be stuck in a Cleveland. It’s like death without the advantages.
Cast: Jef Brown, Mark Motz and Kaitrin McCoy
