The Story

Reprise is the story of Michael, a middle-aged man whose life has been less than stellar. He cobbles together an income while living alone in the house he grew up in. For nearly three decades, he’s been in love with his high school classmate, Erin. But more than love, his feelings for her are wrapped in longing and a belief that she somehow possesses the ability to deliver him a better life.

Erin is beautiful and tired. Her marriage is falling apart and she longs for the attention and affection that her husband has stopped supplying. Her flirtation borders on manipulation. Something Michael mistakes for sexual attraction.

Add to the mix Michael’s  volatile friend Leonard and you have an evening that ends in more than one casualty.
