Legacy Land

Legacy Land 1440 1080 staceyrose

In the shadow of an unseasonable Thanksgiving blizzard, recluse Barbara Tompkins and her young lover Marcus’s, plan for a cozy weekend for two is upended by the unwelcome arrival of Barbara’s sister Denise and her domineering boyfriend, Freddie. When Freddie reveals the true intention of he and Denise’s visit, years of hostility and resentment held between Barbara and Denise are unearthed. Their childhood home becomes battle ground and host to a sexually charged surreal journey into the sister’s repressed memories. As the storm rages, a mystic game unfolds that lays bare the insecurities, kinks, and secrets of the sisters and their lovers. To put an end to the madness, Barbara and Denise must ultimately choose whether to succumb, or fight to overcome the Tompkins family legacy. Legacy Land, listed as an honorable mention on the 2019 and on the 2020 Kilroys List, is an unflinching dark comedic dive into the bizarre legacy sex abuse and incest imprints upon the psyche, sexuality, and relationships of its survivors.

America v. 2.1: The Sad Demise & Eventual Extinction of The American Negro

America v. 2.1: The Sad Demise & Eventual Extinction of The American Negro 2560 1704 staceyrose

America v. 2.1 is a day in the life of a troupe of historical re-enactors charged with telling the tragic story of what was once was the American Negro, a woeful race once featured prominently in the American landscape, but whose time has been extinguished at own foolish hand. The troupe finds themselves at odds with the state of their own existences while being painfully oblivious to the parallels and intersections their lives draw to that of the very Negroes whose story they are bound to tell. As this oblivion fades and they are faced with their stark reality, this day in the life of actors, becomes a day of reckoning.
