BREAKDOWN

[MORDY BERMAN]
30’s, male, any race. A single Jewish struggling songwriter in Los Angeles. Equal parts charming and self-deprecating. Funny, big-hearted, a good guy. Actors with musical abilities strongly encouraged to submit.

[JANE BERMAN]
30’s, female, any race. A married Jewish mother of three in New Jersey. A successful attorney with a desire for more than her family and job can provide. Smart, confident, kind, means well, but sometimes forgets how.

STORYLINE:
Siblings Mordy and Jane communicate like proper millennials: primarily through text message and loaded with sarcasm. Their lives flailing on opposite coasts, they hatch an outrageous plan to relieve their mother of the burden of Zad-Zad, their centenarian – and particularly prickly – grandfather. A world premiere dark comedy for the digital age, The Burdens explores pop culture, connection, and the value of actual face time.
