Written & Directed by Bernard Gray, and Starring Mandy Evans, "Alana" tells the story of a young woman whose neglect and abuse lead her down a dark path with fatal consequences. Evans' brilliant portrayal of Alana both endears and haunts the audience as they watch her innocence siphoned away and her madness take hold. Evans' virtuoso performance coupled with Gray's edgy, thought provoking, and controversial storytelling presents Alana's life to you in a powerful and unapologetic manner. "Alana" addresses issues that are often overlooked and down played in our society. Gray feels that "'Alana' shines a light on the impact parents - and men in particular - have on the psyches and lives of young women. Evans adds, "There are so many versions of Alana in the world right now. No one wants to admit it. It's raw, it's ugly, but it's the truth. I challenge myself to do roles that scare me. Ones that are controversial and bring up topics that others would run away from for fear of being looked at in a negative way." The talented Gray and Evans are joined by a superb supporting cast of Jack Swank, Joni Bogush, Jefrey Wilkerson, Jeff Goldman, and Chris Boylan.
