Abbie Cancelled

The dinner was supposed to be for six, but when their mutual friends cancel at the last second Amanda and Amir are forced to play dinner party with reluctant hosts Karen and Grayson, who are clearly undergoing relationship issues. A hidden agenda of job groveling reveals itself as the night becomes anything but small talk. Inappropriate behavior amongst these true to life characters creates both laughable and emotional moments that lead to an unexpected ending.

Film notes

Abbie Cancelled is a fifteen-minute short film with feature length depth and true to life performances. Created through work shopping, improvisation and extensive rehearsals with an ensemble cast, the film is a dark comedy that offers a glimpse into the lives of two career driven, thirty-something couples in New York, each with their own quirks and hidden agendas. Inappropriate behavior ultimately leads these characters into hilarious and dramatic situations, ultimately cutting the evening short. Dumb Bunny is presently developing a feature length screenplay for Abbie Cancelled.
