Better Left Unsaid (Special Viewing, June 2020)

During quarantine, we did a special viewing of a recorded version of Better Left Unsaid from Jan. 2011. It’s hard to believe that it was 9 years ago. The script still holds up and it reminded me that I had written a screenplay version of it that I am revisiting in order to shop it around.
