STALLED

“On the evening of her boyfriend's birthday party Daisy finds herself "stalled." Literally. Refusing to leave the bathroom for the raging party outside, Pat and Olly try to figure out what is keeping Daisy so stuck.

“Stalled” originated as a one act play and premiered at the Great Salt Lake Film Festival in 2017, winning “Best of Fest” in its category and “Best Ensemble.” Since 2017 writer McKenzie Steele Foster has been adapting it to for the screen.

 
Stalled
Post Theatre Company • It’s her boyfriend, Olly’s, birthday party, but Daisy is having a panic attack and has barricaded herself in the bathroom, where her best friend, Pat, and Olly try frantically to calm her down and determine what’s wrong with her. McKenzie Steele Foster’s inventive and constantly surprising play puts us into Daisy’s head as she tries desperately to figure out what’s real and what isn’t, and soon we can’t tell the difference, either. An appearance by an unexpected guest only deepens the dilemma. Energized by insightful performances and a very innovative soundtrack, “Stalled” is alternately poignant and funny. (40 minutes.) Highly recommended.
