Episode 1 of 4

EPISODE SUMMARY: Sylvia has just moved in with her boyfriend Ryan. She falls asleep thinking about a troubling phone call with her mum, Nora. In her dreams Jim, her personified subconscious, points out she might just be in a dream and joins her on the adventure. Sylvia’s convinced she has a problem to solve but Jim just wants her to have fun. Sylvia becomes obsessed with "figuring out" the dream puzzle; is it about her concerns moving in with Ryan? Or is it all about gender roles? Or is her real problem a little closer to home?

Starring Juliette Burton, Matthew Crosby, Sooz Kempner, Rob Frimston, Angus Dunican.

Episode 1 – ‘Move’ (recorded in April 2020 remotely during COVID19 lockdown). Created by Juliette Burton. Written by Juliette Burton and Liam Beirne. Produced by Juliette Burton. Edited by Frankie Lowe. Recorded remotely.

Juliette Burton as Sylvia – she’s worried about being worried and overthinks about thinking. The only break she gets is in her dreams…where she’s worried about what on earth is happening.

Matthew Crosby as Jim – Sylvia’s personified subconscious. He just wants to have fun/be friends.

Robert Frimston as Ryan – Sylvia’s boyfriend. Simple, dependable, you can always rely on Ryan to nurse it better. Of course in her dreams, he’s somewhat different.

Sooz Kempner as Nora – Sylvia’s caring, loving mother… in her eyes. To Sylvia she’s overbearing, interfering and archaic with ridiculously high standards. And in Sylvia's dreamworld, she does have a habit of becoming odd animals.

Angus Dunican as Announcer – your weekly cheeky introduction and fond farewell to wish you Sweet Dreams
