PROJECT SYNOPSIS

Rehearsal, a slightly dark comedy, is the story of a couple, enjoying retirement, whose world is turned upside down when they receive the news that George, our lead, has a diagnosis of a terminal illness. Shocked by the news George has no time for self pity, instead he devises a plan to help Eunice, his devoted wife, cope with his imminent demise – he is going to ‘rehearse’ his own death.
George, however, does not always chose the time and place of these rehearsals wisely – their favorite coffee shop, yoga class and during intimacy.
Eunice finally understands how important it is that George believes she will be OK and begins to play along.

Additional Comments:

This is Linda Rumney’s second film. Her first film, Infidelity, screened at a number of international festivals and won several awards. The script for Rehearsal was a finalist at the American Gem Literary and Short Script competition. We plan to submit Rehearsal to North American and international festivals.
