Married/Unmarried

Synopsis

Married/Unmarried written originally as a stage play, examines the sexual emotions and infidelity of two twenty-something couples.

Each character interacts with another in a blistering series of 'two-hander' vignettes that examines the effects of love and loss, and dissects their darkest sexuality and desires in frank and explicit scenes.

The structure and pace escalate to a startling climax when inhibitions and morals are discarded, leaving the characters naked from restraint.

Using the vibrancy of London streets and locations as a backdrop, the characters are followed in various interludes - both in musical montage and newly scripted scenes. The work lends itself perfectly to being shot in the film medium, heightening the realism and the suffocating emotions of love.

Filmed, styled and structured in the tradition of the French New Wave studies of morals and manners, and inspired by the naturalistic and improvisational focus of John Cassavettes, Married/Unmarried is a stark exploration of dark sexual swordplay, brutal performance, and unflinching truth.
