Listed by View details

The Darken Door is a short drama about the loneliness people can feel and their instincts to retreat and hide from the world when they are going through a tough time. This story is a mystery drama about a man named Hugo Gate who is grieving his father’s death. It is a stormy night when a stranger appears on Hugo’s doorstep and requests to enter his house and borrow the phone.

Initially Hugo is reluctant to let him in, but at the familiar phrase uttered by the stranger, who calls himself ‘Ambrose’, Hugo invites him inside. However, once he does, a strange conversation begins. Ambrose claims he is immortal and that he has a connection to Hugo’s parents.
Hugo refuses to accept this and wants Ambrose out the door, but Ambrose refuses to leave until Hugo accepts the truth.

I am a student director and have had previous experience directing small projects involving theatre and film. This project will have a release screening on 6th December.
This audition will be self-taped. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.
