Other People's Dead Dads by Jacob Wasson is a deeply personal epic that transcends sexuality, generation, and death itself. Ollie runs a Funeral Guest Stand-In business, specializing in playing the estranged and excommunicated gay sons of America. He vows to make a change, but his lies have gone too far. I put together this team after finding the script, and after three draft readings, we were able to fund a 29-hour industry presentation.
