Stage-centric comedy “The Daphne Project” debuts in theaters in New York starting in July 22nd ahead of Fuse+ release.
The film stars Daphne Wilco (Zora Iman Crews), actress and social justice warrior, hilariously wreaking havoc on an off-off Broadway production of Euripides’ “The Bacchae” in the name of progress, her progress.
Co-directed, written & produced by Alec Tibaldi (the critically acclaimed “Spiral Farm”) and Zora Iman Crews (Amazon Prime’s “Legend’s Of Sleepy Hollow Anthology”), this quick moving New York centric stage driven feature film invites comparisons to another critical favorite “Curb Your Enthusiasm” with its perfectly timed comedic gems. The Daphne Project,” a film festival circuit darling (including top Film Festival’s Geena Davis’s Bentonville Film Festival and St. Louis International Film Festival) will open in theatres beginning in New York with the Quad Cinema on July 22nd with the filmmakers in attendance for Q&A’s, ahead of its platform release through Fuse + later this year.
“The Daphne Project” engaging cast is led by stars Zora Iman Crews (Amazon Prime’s “Legend’s Of Sleepy Hollow Anthology”), Jake Horowitz (Amazon Studios’ “The Vast of Night”, Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and All), April Lavelle (HBO Max’s “The Flight Attendant”), Reed Lancaster (“Gold”), Geena Quintos, Annie-Sage Whitehurst (“Roadside Assistance”), Yael Rizowy (“Trying Hard”), Ed Norwood (“Spiral Farm”), Austin Letorney (“Magnolia Flowers”), Duncan Menaker (“Cilla”), and Piper De Palma (“Spiral Farm”).
