JUMP, DARLING
 
directed by Phil Connell
 
 
 
A Queer tale of Family.
 
 

Half- prepped before a dressing room mirror in the back of a bustling city gay bar, Russell, an actor turned drag queen, struggling to find his voice, is given a wrenching ultimatum. Overcome by indecision, he escapes to his grandmother’s house in the country. There he finds sardonic Margaret in steep decline. In a perfect, if precarious solution for both of them he moves in to protect her from her greatest fear the local nursing home.
