Hold to Play

"I wonder if she talks about me on her tapes. I wonder what she says about me."

Deep in space, the crew of the starship Juno has started undertaking the curious practice of keeping audio diaries under the captain’s orders. One such crew member works in the engineering department, and despite not being enthusiastic about the initiative, he finds himself opening up his his cassette recorder and chronicling life on the Juno. But when an unexpected series of events sends the ship into crisis, he finds himself not only opening up to his tapes, but also to one other particular crew member.

A sci-fi drama that looks at what we think when we’re alone, Hold to Play is thoughtful story with an unusual set up, and a finale that goes beyond your regular monologue. Click below to download:
