From the director of YOU’RE NEXT and featuring a standout, badass performance from Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”)


From the director of YOU’RE NEXT and featuring a standout, badass performance from Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”), comes THE GUEST: a tense, action-packed and unpredictable film like everything and nothing you’ve ever seen before. Empire Magazine called it “a demented action-horror hybrid of sci-fi conspiracy thriller and gore-fest”, and Vanity Fair said, “THE GUEST is big, it’s bold, it’s badass, full of flavor Hollywood wishes it could pour over its vanilla blockbusters.”

A soldier (Dan Stevens) introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence

The script of the film was written by Aschlin Ditta, head writer of the “Catherine Tate Show”, the stage adaptation was in the hands of Award Winner Director Leonard Zelig who is producing the play here in New York City at Teatro SEA, an amazing three-year-old venue in the Lower East Side.

Scenes are interwoven stories of couples in Hampstead Heath Park in north London. Seven loosely related tales behave like a sexual encounter – moving forward and backward; connecting smoothly, painfully, and curiously; heating up then heating up more. Sex and love sometimes are the same and sometimes have nothing to do with each other. 

Scenes explores divorce, homosexuality, the longevity of love, children, infidelity, and prostitution … all in one afternoon. 

Scenes shares what makes these couples tick and in turn what makes us all tick.

Scenes is already in development for a more commercial run. The Water People Theater Company is thrilled to premiere this new work.
