GET IT UP ONSTAGE is a night of television and feature films performed live, onstage and in a theater. More than a staged reading, but slightly less than a full-fledged production, this theatrical showcase provides writer the opportunity to put their work up onstage and see it come to life in front of a live audience. Lindsey created the series along with Harper Dill, and they produced the inaugural performance in November of 2014 through their Polly Garter Production Company, which strives to tell stories about women, written and directed by women, and performed for all audiences to enjoyed.
Lindsey wrote and directed "Sext Me Maybe" a half-hour television pilot set in present day Washington D.C., is inspired by the illicit sexcapades of former NYC Congressman Anthony Weiner, and tells the story of Jessica Connolly, a successful lawyer, whose meticulously curated life unravels thanks to the unfortunate arrival of an unwanted dick pic. CAST: Jamie Renee Smith, Jonah Platt, Zena Grey, Michelle Joyner, Rees Pugh, Talia Tabin, Jordan Bielsky, Josh Margolin. (The pilot is currently availible).
Harper wrote and directed and starred in the first act of her feature film "I Love It When You're Not Talking". The story is loosely based on Harper's relationship with one of her best friends during their time living together in New York. Adapted to a one-act play, it tells the story of an incredibly close friendship that becomes complicated by the threat of adulthood. CAST: Harper Dill, Zoe Worth, Gabe Loeb, Adam Lustick.
Lindsey and Harper met in high school where they worked on several theater productions together, including Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood, which features the strong, colorful character of Polly Garter, a singing, pregnant prostitute, whose memorable role has stuck with them ever since.
