New Tear-Jerker describes a stagnant space between voices and sounds of life and dismal silence
NEW YORK - "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck," proclaims Mime in Lawrence J. Corneck's new screenplay, Mime's the Word . Mime becomes mixed up with a sympathetic priest and a confused, embittered young couple when he finds a baby left to die in a trash can.
Mime's the Word follows unsavory, eccentric, ruthless, puzzling and disturbing characters in Corneck's riveting Game of Life saga.
Mime's the Word features the ultimate anti-hero as Mime regresses into the solitude of silence to escape the adversities of a life.
Father Warhola becomes drawn into the sudden darkness of Mime's world. A brutal crime brings Mime and Warhola closer together and strengthen their resolve that there in no escape from life.
Zoe Rex is a spoiled rich girl who doesn't care about the consequences of throwing life away. Her boy toy, Yoshi, is naïve and easily sucked into Zoe's manipulations.
An intense investigation is put underway by Serena Knight, a weary, cynical, relentless detective. What evolves from the investigation can only be seen as senseless and dark, a stagnant space between the voices and sounds of life and dismal silence.
Corneck is the author of Existential Hell: A Screenplay Trilogy; Big Cigar, small d**k; FAT FAT Snitch; Geezer Pleaser and Bald Lubavitcher, all part of the same Saga. More screenplays based upon earlier characters, including Bubble Catcher, Asphalt Bungle, B**** Fight at the KO Corral, Spy with the Beautiful Frown and Killing Time as Time Kills will follow. Each screenplay will be written in a different genre: cat and mouse, domestic drama, high adventure, coming of age, comedy, romance, horror, tear-jerker, show biz, caper, western, spy and science fiction.
