Betty, an up-and-coming film actress, is skilled, talented, driven

But while rehearsing a pivotal scene in a romantic drama she hopes will propel her to the A-list, Betty finds herself more than a little challenged. Her director, Bernie, is also her leading man

Yet even someone of his noteworthy capabilities can't do it all

Enter Bernie's stand in, a background actor seemingly from the silent movie era

Before long, however, it becomes evident the scene would be a better fit in a disaster movie, stunt double or no. That is, until he speaks

And Betty is the one left speechless

One-act comedy
