This film, Pyramid, is a three-hander. That is, there are only three roles in the film. It is set in predominantly once location and takes place in story-time of only a few days.
After seven years in prison, Danny returns to the now derelict vineyard owned by the estranged couple whose lives he destroyed.
This film will be an unusual undertaking, with a offbeat plot and execution.
The role requires the female lead role to be of Arabic lineage due to a specific Egyptian theme. The character is strong-willed, independent, obsessive and dominant - but not angry, not violent and not domineering.
Instead, she uses emotional and seductive powers to control as well as preys upon vulnerabilities.
Development of the character will be a vital part of the role which director and three actors will undertake together during a period of rehearsals.
Dialogue will be kept to a minimum - with the storytelling relying on visual performance and storytelling.
