BRIDGES AND BOUNDARIES
By Courtney Lauria
Directed by Tamara Fisch
In a brick house in Astoria, Queens, shadowed by the RFK bridge, a young woman is sorting her emotions. In jars. Literally. Claire’s phobias have gotten the best of her for long enough, and the way she is living doesn’t feel like living at all. Bridges and Boundaries charts Claire’s quest to overcome her road blocks, and create a future she actually wants to feel. This crafted tale explores love, trust, and issues that aren’t just water under the bridge.
