EROSION

Genre: Drama
written by Nicholas Linnehan; directed by Andrew Rothkin

 Erosion is the story of a young gay man’s depression resulting from his inability to maintain relationships. After meeting a man of interest in a group therapy session he is catapulted into a parasitic relationship of drugs and dependency, which ultimately threatens to destroy him.

The story is told through a unique look inside his therapy workbook, his psychiatric sessions with his doctor, and the use of the ensemble who play various internal struggles and people in his life.
