- The Crumple Zone
A comedy set in a run-down apartment on Staten Island, with three gay roommates, in crisis, during one frantic Christmas weekend. One of them, Terry, an out-of-work actor who can’t get a job or a date, spends his days drinking and refereeing a messy love triangle. Extremely funny, and deeply moving, The Crumple Zone is about staying together, breaking apart, and the things we lose along the way.
