A WORLD PREMIERE by Chisa Hutchinson
Directed by Kristin Horton
A Haunting Comedy
“…the Ethics of Gentrification! Like what even is that! It’s called evolution, amigo! Survival of the Fittest! And it’s not my fault that some people are woefully unfit.”
Rebecca Burgess moves into a brownstone, renovates it, and simultaneously refuses to embrace her neighbors. In all her gentrifying glory, Rebecca is just living her life when weird, supernatural sh*t starts happening, for no reason that she can think of. But, of course, the fact that she can’t think of the reason is probably why it’s happening. Chisa Hutchinson is serving up her usual quick-witted words and otherworldly images. Yes, the playwright who brought you Dead and Breathing and A Wedding Gift is back. So, get ready for a haunting – and hunting!

Her first original feature, The Subject, an indie about a white documentarian dealing with the moral fallout from exploiting the death of a black teen, is available on various VOD platforms after a successful film festival circuit during which it won over 30 prizes. www.chisahutchinson.com
