Diane, Georgia and Joanne are 3 modern women living very different lives. Unbeknownst to them, they are all pining after the same young man, Trevor: sexy, stoned, oblivious; a surfer on a rad, rad philosophical journey. When a beautiful 11 year old girl named Anna, and Mona (a sexy, widowed astronaut) are thrown into the crosswinds of diverse romantic affairs, hearts will be broken, loves will be lost, and youthful cries of hope, anger, and sadness will be written on walls. Mothers will try to guide their daughters from the promise and beauty of youth through the diminishing opportunities of aging. Daughters will go to the extremes of passion to hold on to their fantasies of love. One man will be in the middle of a romantic storm of graffiti, drugs, sexual asphyxiation, gunshots, explosions, and desire.
I Used to Write on Walls was first produced by Working Man's Clothes Productions at the Gene Frankel Underground, NYC in 2008. It was directed by Diana Basmajian and Isaac Byrne.
