Heather Christian, composer/actor on playing
"Miss Atomic"

"I was like how do I get in touch with my inner beauty Queen? Then I realized I could just be my scrappy,punky, pixie self and have a good time at this party."

"Visiting a pig farm in the summer desert heat of Las Vegas...I mean the crazy shit we did in the name of research."

 The team Makes a Play

directed by paulette douglas

They're young, they're talented, they're broke...
the struggle to make a living doing what you love.

This exciting documentary, directed by 5 time Emmy Award winner Paulette Douglas, captures a rare inside look at the TEAM's three year collaborative journey creating their
multi-award-winning new production MISSION DRIFT, an epic saga exploring the true meaning of American Capitalism. 

"It's quite astonishing!  Of 7 TEAM performers who were a part of this, 2 remain standing."
Rachel Chavkin, artistic director

“I call it the zygote stage…the ideas have begun to take shape…none of this could end up in the final piece or it all could.”

Rachel Chavkin, artistic director

“It’s hard to explain to my family sometimes that I’m happy and I’m ok even though I’m broke and not on Broadway.” 

Heather Christian, composer/actor

This compelling excerpt occurs about halfway through the film. The TEAM has just experienced a major setback in the process but are regrouping and moving on. The short verite intro leads to the stirring song, "Cannonball" which Heather composed for a similar moment in the play. Co-producer and editor Andy Morreale did a beautiful job capturing the emotional highs and lows of the moment.

"I feel this process has been like hacking off limbs."
Libby King, writer/actor
