Marissa (Sarah Troyer), shortly before her car crash. Troyer was also Kristen in “Seven Reasons”, Episode 1.13 of THE GOOD DOCTOR on ABC.
Marissa (Sarah Troyer) wrecks her car, and it is possible that the rest of the film is an elaborate explanation of why that happens. For a while, the story seems like a simple love triangle with technological complications. Samantha (Anja Savčić) is a college student who also works as a waitress. She solicits the help of one of the café’s customers (the handsome Mark, played by Levi Meaden) with an essay she’s writing for one of her courses.

Kate Corbett (Stacey in “Sweet Valkyrie High“) will be Moira’s soon-to-be-married daughter Bonnie in AN AUDIENCE OF CHAIRS, an adaptation of the award-winning 2005 novel by Joan Clark about a gifted but mentally ill woman (Carolina Bartczak) who loses her two young children after she leaves them unattended on an island near her summer home.

Director Deanne Foley told Meghan McCabe of CBC News: “It’s just such an exquisite novel…It’s about a mother and her connection with her daughters, and a really complex relationship with her love and art and her career, and I think any woman can relate to that.”AN AUDIENCE OF CHAIRS wrapped shooting in Newfoundland in July, and will be released early in 2018.

Meghan Heffern (Tabitha in Fae-de to Black) will be Evelyn in CHOKESLAM, a wrestling movie filmed in Regina, due to be released later this year. Producer Anand Ramayya, speaking to CTV News, described the story as “…a romantic comedy about a female wrestler with a bad temper and her nerdy delicatessen boyfriend who’s trying to win her love back. It’s a really sweet story and it’s really funny, and it’s a really smart script.” Among others in the film are WYNONNA EARP‘s Michael Eklund, and semi-retired wrestler Mick Foley.
Brittany Allen (Della in Delinquents) is Naomi in the science fiction film INCONTROL, which, according to writer and director Kurtis David Harder, delves somewhat playfully into the theme of addiction. “We’re hoping to make a fun film, you know a sci-fi thriller that people can enjoy,” Harder told Jeremy Simes of Calgary Metro News during production. “But it also plays into asking moral questions and the deeper meaning behind it all.” Now in post-production, INCONTROL will tour North American film festivals later this year. Among others in the cast are Sarah Troyer and David LeReaney (both of whom have appeared on WYNONNA EARP), and Anja Savčić (Mary Collacut on CBC’s STRANGE EMPIRE).
