THE OTHER DAY

Genre: Drama
Written by Mark Jason Williams, Directed by Valentina Fratti

After a chance meeting, opposites attract when Santo, an out-going late 20’s hottie, and Mark, a 30-something conservative neurotic, fall in love. Six months later, they are living together in a small one-bedroom in Jersey City until Mark’s friend Dina rips away the shiny veneer covering the men’s fragile relationship. With the hope of moving on, Mark takes Santo and Dina on a vacation to Amsterdam, where each faces an emotional journey that redefines their relationships in surprising ways. The Other Day is an honest, heartwarming and humorous look at friendship, love, and hope, which dares to ask the question: When is it time to stop grieving for what’s lost and start living for what’s found?

Valentina Fratti will direct a cast of four including Lars Drew, Amadeo Fusca, Zach Wegner*, and Elena Zazanis*.  AEA Showcase. *Member, Actors’ Equity Association.

Director Valentina Fratti's interest in directing The Other Day stems from her belief that “Williams is able to capture the challenge faced by a complex character with humor and sensitivity.  What happens when you need to say goodbye to the person closest to you?  He places his characters in situations in which we wonder, what would I do? How would I react?”

The Other Day benefits the Hetrick- Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School, which believes all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.  Founded in 1979, The Hetrick-Martin Institute creates this environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth between the ages of 12 and 24 and their families.  Through a comprehensive package of direct services and referrals, Hetrick-Martin seeks to foster healthy youth development. Hetrick-Martin’s staff promotes excellence in the delivery of youth services and uses its expertise to create innovative programs that other organizations may use as models.  For more information visit hmi.org, follow along on http://twitter.com/HetrickMartin or become a fan on Facebook.
