Coming-of-age of four disparate housemates in West Hollywood in 1979.
World Premiere comedy.
West Hollywood, 1979. It’s a moment in time before cityhood, before sweeping demographic changes, before gentrification and exorbitant prices, before a decade of the tumultuous upheaval of historic events. It’s a time that’s slightly simpler and perhaps more naïve and innocent.
Four disparate twenty-something individuals move into a rented West Hollywood home. There’s Brad, handsome and straight, but a six-pack away from putting the bi in bi-sexual Ted, flamboyant but in very deep denial about his sexual orientation Stephen, virginal and questioning where he’s headed and a last-minute addition, Katie, Brad’s ex.
The living arrangements are less awkward than they might be. Brad and Katie both know that they are over. Brad starts seeing someone new, Mimi. Katie catches the eye of Michael, a neighbor who’s a successful actor in commercials.
A “comedy in six months,” The Direction Home explores these characters’ relationships, the difficulties of coming of age in a big city, and how important it is to find your own First Family.
