A GROUNDBREAKING TV SERIES
AFTERS is about after parties, and the “Afters” life, set against the backdrop of London on New Years Weekend.
Roxy, a small time dealer ‘slash’ DJ, has a fresh ex, solid best friend, and a side bag of answers to other people’s problems.
But not her own.
On March 9th 2018 an immersive live read of "AFTERS" was staged at Picturehouse Central.
Isaac's hour-long pilot script was performed live for the first time by a cast of actors, to an industry audience.
To request a press pack and sample of the script please get in touch.
IS a musical
The short film is adapted from Isaac's original play, a finalist in competition for Theatre Madness at Stratford Arts Centre 2016.
Its blend of socio-political riffs and pop culture references are familiar enough to feel inclusive and crucially, universal.
Its themes of hope, belief, achievement and love are a clear hook.
But the driving theme is MUSIC.
It taps into something electric and almost primal, living inside us.
