The Insidious Impact of Anton

written by
David Hilder

directed by
Richard Tatum



Francesca is a 30-something urban dweller who knows who’s who and what’s what and will be more than happy to tell you exactly which is which. She has it all: the job that’s not too demanding, the superintendent ex-boyfriend who still fixes her plumbing (to speak in euphemism), and the gay friend next door. Who needs ups and downs, she figures, when she can have contentment? Then she meets Anton, a mysterious stranger who keeps turning up, and the oddest things start happening. She gets fired from the cushy job, starts to actually care about people, and, worst of all, ends up dating Anton, a peculiar little man with an Eastern European accent. Ultimately, Francesca has to face what it means to be alive, and what it means to be human.

The cast included: Mikhail Blokh, June Carryl, Warren Davis, Tracy Eliott, Jon Gale, Daniel Montgomery, and Patty Jean Robinson
