Crew Call for Short Film “Dirty Dishes” [Baltimore, MD] #filmcrew #casting

Posted June 23, 2017

PLOT SUMMARY: Dirty Dishes is about a dispirited 1950’s housewife who desires a life outside of her home, but must first confront her sink full of dirty dishes.

SYNOPSIS:
Martha Lapin is a dispirited 1950’s suburban housewife who feels disengaged from the world around her. One morning while having breakfast with her husband, Roger, and their two kids, Martha comes across an ad for a writing assistant position and confesses to Roger her desire to rejoin the workforce. Blindsided by her confession, Roger convinces Martha that her duty as a wife and mother should come before her desire to return to work. With Roger and the kids away, Martha goes about her day as usual receiving visits from Bill, an insurance salesman, Darcy, her high-spirited nanny, and Nancy Girshfield, the ultimate neighborhood housewife. In the end, Martha finds that going after what she wants will force her to confront the one question she is afraid to ask herself: does she love her family as much as she thinks she does? And that answer may rely entirely on whether or not she can complete the one task she secretly refuses to do: washing the dirty dishes.
