This project is a screenplay that follows the life of Marisa Bradford, a young college-aged woman from Palm Springs, California who finds herself moving to London to attend the London University for the Dramatic Arts (LUDA). Marisa is a recovering alcoholic who recently became engaged to her boyfriend Eric before leaving for London. At LUDA, while fighting for leading roles in A Midsummer Night’s Dream with catty actresses from Essex, Marisa faces the familiar temptations associated with her alcoholism and a new temptation—Sean, a good-looking lead actor who defends Marisa at every turn. When her friends and family arrive for the debut of the play from America, everything comes to a head as Marisa’s separate lives merge. Ultimately, she maintains the relationships that matter to her with the people who have never stopped supporting her, even when she didn’t understand the support. A scout from a prestigious acting program in New York City sees her performance in a supporting role, Titania, and offers her a spot in the highly-competitive program. The ending leaves her and Eric resolving their relationship challenges and moving to New York together.
