Sinking Hearts: Episode One

You should go see the first episode of Sinking Hearts, a Gothic soap opera I wrote, as part of the HOT! Festival at Dixon Place tomorrow. One night only and Youngblood's own Patrick Link is ACTING in it!

Sinking Hearts is a gothic soap opera in the tradition of Dark Shadows, Twin Peaks and True Blood. Except that it incorporates drag, gay sailors and the work of Kafka, so… there’s that.

In Sinking Hearts a psychic Navy wife named Misty Nagel moves to a secluded submarine base in Washington State with her sailor husband and bitch daughter. There are lots of questions to be answered, and with the help of her alcoholic neighbor and new BFF, Crystal Firby, Misty intends to answer them. Questions like: Is Misty's husband, Chuck, a total fag? Will Misty's 12 year-old daughter Madison beat her to death with a brick? Where are all the neighbors disappearing to and what's with all these giant insects, anyway? Find out the answers to these questions and more on Sinking Hearts!
