FRESH GRIND FESTIVAL - THANK YOU NOTES: HEADED TO HEAVEN W/ FLAT JIMMY FALLON & AN UNEXPECTED THING

Genre: Festival, Reading

Thank You Notes: Headed to Heaven W/ Flat Jimmy Fallon 
Written by Vicki Vodrey 
Directed by Jessica Ryan 

After deciding life was too unbearable to continue, Angela put a bullet through her head. Her will included three requests: First, she wanted to be buried with her dog. Next, her cardboard cut-out of The Tonight Show’s host Jimmy Fallon had to rest by her side for the rest of eternity.  And the third wish – that her twin brother, Ethan, gives her eulogy by reading the handwritten notes that she left behind, all of which have been conceived in the format of Jimmy Fallon’s “Thank You Notes” segment. As Ethan goes through each letter, Angela takes us through the hilarious, touching, and ultimately shocking journey of her life.

An Unexpected Thing Happens 
Written by Michael Perrie Jr. 
Directed by Lacy Reily 

Jazz is having a hard time lately. She works part time as a law secretary, and full time as a depressed comedian. Her best friend, Poppy, is on the verge of curing cancer, getting married, and buying a new brownstone. As Jazz is about to give up, she receives a mysterious gift from the Sea Turtle who lives in her dreams - a notebook with the cure for cancer scribbled inside.

The Fresh Grind Festival was created to feature new, original works in development and up-and-coming writers and directors. It is an opportunity to collaborate, to explore, and to develop original plays and musicals, culminating in public staged readings at Theaterlab, a white-box theatre in midtown.
