JUST CALL ME RIPLEY

Ripley is a directionless bagel shop employee stuck in the middle of her own directionless coming out story. She is trying to figure out if she’s gay, and much to her disappointment, no one just hands you a gay card. Meanwhile she’s stuck living with her ex fiancé, Dan, who seems to be more accepting of the possibility that’s she’s gay than she is herself. In fact, Ripley is surrounded by accepting people, including coworkers at the bagel shop and her neighbor Butch Donna. Just Call Me Ripley is a comedic coming out story that follows Ripley on her search for identity and love.

Currently in post production through Spring 2019.
