“Silence” Synopsis:

New York (1927) – a Vaudeville team, realizing that Vaudeville is on the way out, decides to produce their first film: “King Lear”.
However, on the set of “King Lear” a random garbage man stumbles into their film and turns their drama into a slapstick comedy. The comedy is a huge success and the company is faced with finding this garbage man to repeat their success and reap the riches or whether it is more important to them to pursue their art.

Actors Needed:

He favors his artistic integrity over everything else and believes that art must be pure, and done for its own sake, and the beauty of art should be its own reward.
