Quick, Change

Quick, Change explores the decline of an aging actor as he portrays Richard III at a fictional, Tony-award winning summerstock theater festival.  Gabriel Fox, an actor past the prime of his career, finds himself at the Willow Theater Festival after suffering several major vocational blows, hoping to feel successful and appreciated once again. As he pursues an affair with his twenty-one year old dresser Annie, Gabe feels increasingly intrigued by and connected to the self-loathing, power-hungry Richard. As he feels his notions of morality and success being encroached upon by the women in his life (his co-star Joan, director Beth, and Annie), Gabe frantically tries to mark his territory and prove his authority, made worse by his alcoholic tendencies. In doing so, he ends up betraying them all. Quick, Change exposes the casualties of ‘networking’ and the way people use and dispose of others.
