Ringers

- a short film-noir starring Jason Alan Griffin

Written and Directed by Dikayl Rimmasch

"Ringers" shows the nightmarish trip of a man whose little plan didn't turn out like he expected. Dikayl has created a world in which one is never sure what's real or what anyone is really up to; a world somewhere near the corner of David Lynch and Alfred Hitchcock.

Jason says, "When I first read this script at the audition, it read like an episode of The Twilight Zone. I loved that show growing up. I immediately knew I had to do this movie."

Dikayl has said that his choice in casting JAG, was mainly for his tendency to seem completely non-confrontational. He said that it was hard finding a New York actor who didn't read as 'tough' during those intense scenes.

Playwright John Gruen said, "Just saw "Ringers" -- totally terrifying. Your performance is superb. You have a true screen presence and, with practically no dialogue to speak of (so to speak), you make every moment a riveting and dangerous experience. Bravo! The direction, photography and editing are equally first-rate. It should win everyone several awards."

Time:
The Present. Just after Christmans.
Place:
Adjoining staterooms on the cruise ship QUEEN OF THE SEA.

"Andrew and Kevin, long time partners, have recently split acrimoniously. Feeling the need for a vacation, they've each booked themselves, with new younger companions, on a 'gay cruise.' Unbeknownst to either one, they find themselves on the same sold-out ship...in adjoining cabins. Rough seas ahead? The forecast looks stormy."

After the reading, join the TOSOS family and their friends for a no-host get-together at Zuni (598 9th Ave at 43rd Street)

The TOSOS Robert Chesley / Jane Chambers Playwright Project is a forum for playwrights to have their work read to an invited audience. No staging. No Q and A. Just an opportunity for playwrights to be heard. It welcomes new voices even as it offers a chance to look at plays from the past in an attempt to keep our heritage alive. It is named to honor Jane Chambers (1937-83) and Robert Chesley (1943-90) arguably two of the most original and impassioned voices to contribute to the GLBT theatrical culture.
