TCFF Insider Series presents ‘Janey Makes A Play‘ with Filmmaker in attendance on Friday, July 22nd. ‘Janey Makes A Play is a documentary film that follows a captivating ninety-year-old woman as she rallies her small town to create a theatre production about the Great Depression amidst the real erosion of the town’s local economy. Janey has spent her life in the theatre, committing the past decade to writing and directing original plays for Rio Vista, California, a picturesque small town on the Sacramento River Delta. Her community non-profit troupe, called No Small Thing Productions, has produced seventeen of Janey’s original handwritten plays. Janey continually battles inconsistent rehearsal attendance, people moving away or quitting, actors memorizing their lines last-minute, and sets that are not completely assembled. If they don’t sell tickets for their performance, the troupe will not have enough money to continue to exist. Transported into rural America, we witness the challenges of pulling off a high-caliber production with an eccentric cast of characters.
Film will be followed by a Q&A and a networking Happy Hour onsite!
