How to Talk to Human Beings

Written and Directed by Frances Koncan

Outside the theatre of a Broadway stage door, fans wait eagerly for autographs and photos with their favourite actors. Sometimes these fans come back. Sometimes they come every day. And sometimes things get... complicated. A hyper-realistic, pop-culture-infused comedy about theatre, actors, and the fans who love them (sometimes a little too much). Not at all based on a true story concerning the writer's personal experience as a member of the Spring Awakening and Sleep No More fandoms.
