Surrealist Drama

Mirroring the progression of a musical fugue composition, amnesiac Vera pieces together through fugue state episodes the events leading up to a traumatizing car crash that claimed the lives of her closest friends—in which she was the driver. One victim’s younger brother steps in to help alleviate Vera of her guilt and despair, though he may have his own doubts about her culpability.

Ayanna Wimberly is a 2015 graduate of Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Dramatic Writing. A life-long cinephile, her favorite topics to see and explore as writer in film are those that put a microscope to human psychology and those with psychotic women. Back in her hometown of Chicago, Illinois she was handpicked as one of 13 high school students to produce original one-act plays to be work shopped and have staged readings at the Victory Gardens Theatre. Since coming to NYU, she has been selected as one of 12 students to participate in the Tisch in London Screenwriting Program and has had both development and production internships with CBS, Jean Doumanian Productions and The Jim Gaffigan Show.
