DANIELLE AZIZA- ANDIE/CHOREOGRAPHY
Danielle Aziza is an actress and performance artist from Anguilla, BWI. She has studied at Stella Adler and at The Acting Studio. Her solo performance work explores ideas of privacy and intimacy and aims to encourage others to live unabashedly. You can often catch her either running around downtown, walking her dog Zo, or baring her soul (and a little skin) on one stage or another. Drop her a line at danielle.aziza@gmail.com.  She is thrilled to finally be working on a project with Matt and is very grateful to Phoebe and the cast for their creativity. 


SHELBY ALLISON BROWN - ASHLEY
Shelby Allison Brown is a Louisville, KY native (Go Cards, drink bourbon) stepping into her first production with Randomly Specific Theatre as Ashley in this fun piece of work! Some of her favorite credits include Francine (Jersey Boys), Juliet Capulet (Romeo and Juliet), and Veronica Sawyer (Heathers: The Musical). When she's not working with this crazy band of fools, she's coaching fitness at Orangetheory on the UWS, singing some songs at Bar9 in Hell's Kitchen, or devouring whatever book someone has let her borrow. All my love and gratitude to my friends and family for their support while I live the dream and survive the nightmare! 24:29:11. 


ALEX MAYER - RILEY
Alex Mayer (Riley) is an actor whose work spans both stage and screen. On stage, she most recently performed as Harper in Angels in America with her acting studio. Other theater credits include leading roles in Spike Heels, The Mistakes Madeline Made and Monty Python. Up next, Alex will return to screen with Jack Nicoletti’s psychological drama Little Bodega. Since entering the industry two years ago, Alex has studied under Christopher Chwee at Act First Studios.






Jack, a hero ex-cop, anti-police brutality crusader, and self-proclaimed sex addict, has written a screen play about his life.

In an attempt to win her back he enlists the help of Ashley, his on again/off again girlfriend, to make sure the script isn't offensive. Turns out, everyone seems to be offended by something. Riley, Jack’s former fling, is livid about how he over-sexualized her avant garde performance art. Jose, also a jilted lover, chimes in with his views on this problematic representation of the LGBTQ community. And Jack’s upstairs neighbor, Andie, a bi-racial intellectual, has her own thoughts on what makes someone “woke AF.”

Over the course of an evening as an unseasonal blizzard rages outside, they attempt to agree on what is and isn’t offensive, who gets to say what, when and why and at what point does political correctness do more harm than good?
