Audition Description

A modern-day psychological horror following a remorseful young man, Mac Messings, attempting to escape his mother's abusive control. When his mother is suddenly paralyzed, Mac's dream of leaving is shattered as he begins losing touch with reality.

  • Her objective is to keep the remains of her family together. She wants to force Mac into staying with her through verbal abuse and guilt. She is coming from a rocky past and will go to extreme lengths to manipulate Mac, revealing her possessive nature. She knowingly uses the wrong tactics to keep control over Mac; a constant contradiction of how she views herself. Wanting what's left of the family to stay together, but harming the only thing she has left. This is ultimately because she wants control over Mac more than anything else.

  • Mac's objective is to start a new life with his girlfriend and escape his mother's abusive control. He is a kind-hearted character to a fault; he constantly allows his mom to berate and mentally abuse him, without defending his own self. He is remorseful and disconnected from reality, constantly thinking that his mother's words are truth; fueling a constant cycle of self-blame for his father and sister's deaths. His only beacon of hope is Nia, and the thought of escaping his mother's control, allowing him to start a new life.
