DEAR NATALIE, IT’S ME STAZIA
Hilarity is horrific and tragic is comedic in this tale of 25-year-old Stazia’s search for love and belonging in the loneliest city on earth: New York. To the outside world she lives the life of comfort and grandeur, though on the inside she is torn, caught between the realities of her past and a classic idealism for the future.
Written by Alison Fishburn & Christopher Mattiucci
Produced by Alison Fishburn
