Wednesday's Child, by
Mark St. Germain,
is a fast-paced thriller, murder mystery, and more.
Susan and Martin Merrit are unable to have a child
on their own, so they hire Becca Connor to serve as
a surrogate. When Becca is found dead, a police
investigation explodes the lives of everyone who knew
her. As Detectives Valez and Dixon begin to put the
pieces together, secrets surface, alibis weaken, and
lies are uncovered. This dramatic play explores
motherhood, passion, and that thin line between right
This is taken from an, as of yet, unfinished
also all guided improv, that features Natasha in
another scene related to Be Or Not, and it
features several other actors in other story lines.
The other actors are (in alphabetical order):
Daunte Beddingfield, Loren Goins, Barbara Jorgensen,
Crystal Justice (who also served as
for several of the shoots), Wayne Justice, Wendi
Michael, Elena Monigold, Gino Pasi, David Sherman,
and Brett Taylor.
The full-length, which has been in
limbo for well over a decade, is tentatively titled,
Vignettes in Bellcreek. It would be ridiculous
for me to try at a date that this movie will reach
hope springs eternal that someday.....
As an actor I was privileged to have a small roll in this
multi-award winning, very touching, most poignant short
film. I was further privileged to accept the award, on
behalf of Beth McElhenny, for Best Family Film at the 2008
Secret City Film Festival in Oakridge, Tennessee. The film
has won awards far more than that one time. Click on the
