What I liked

Very interesting and unique situation, ripe for exploitation.

What I didn't like

Doesn’t really fit “dramatization”, and asking one actress to play THREE roles does it a disservice.

My overall impression

Is this hour based on a true story? There’s no clue, except that it resists being boxed into tidy dialogue scenes, and wilts at the end with the announcement of an off-stage “agreement”. Excellent cast keeps it watchable (especially Clayton Farris,a not UNsympathetic villain; Sherry Berg, who commands the stage; and Claire Chapelli). It does the script a disservice to ask Ms Chapelli to play THREE parts (the martyr, a secretary AND the idealistic filmmaker who bookends the flashback story). The show NEEDS an additional female to split the key roles with her.
