Between Extremes

Arlington filmmaker Frank Mosley, who will debut his first feature, HOLD, in a couple of months, is finishing up a short called HOT/COLD but needs a couple of extra bucks to see his experimental narrative through. Which is where you come in. On Tuesday at Four Day Weekend Theater, Mosley is presenting a staged reading of the DELETE, narrated by drama instructor Jennifer Mazza-Nguyen and acted by cast members Danielle Pickard, Crystal Pate, Morgana Shaw, and John Elliott. Local photographer Paul Leicht has taken a series of portraits and abstracts that will be projected on three background screens during the performance, and local noir-folk singer-songwriter Clint Niosi will accompany the actors by performing a first draft of the film’s score. Admission is free, but Mosley hopes that theatergoers will donate to his cause. He hopes to have the money to produce his film by the summer.
Past, present, and future collide in this story “about disillusioned people stuck in a purgatory of uncertainty,” Mosley says. The narrative hinges on three women of three different ages who mirror one another’s failures and victories. The film’s non-linear structure encourages theatergoers “to determine whether [the characters’] fates are justified.” A live performance piece, a short film, an installation, triptych, a concert –– whatever it is, Mosley’s staged reading of HOT/COLD stands to be groundbreaking. Also, local filmmaker Shaun Hamill will be chronicling the evening for a documentary.

Staged reading of HOT/COLD is on Tue at 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. at Four Day Weekend Theater, 312 Houston St, FW. Visit www.frankmosley.com.
