Characters
Terry
, a handsome and charming man in advertising. Probably played by an actor in his 30’s or 40’s.
The Other,
all other parts, including Her, Jeff, and The Priest. Probably played by an actress in her 30’s or 40’s.
2007. Primarily New York City with a little Cape Cod.
The setting should be simple and allow for fluid transformations: a desk, chairs, a couch, maybe a bed.

Synopsis
Other Bodies
follows Terry, a notorious player, whose pursuit of a mysterious woman leads to obsession and violence. What begins as a seductive battle of the sexes deepens into a haunting parable of the way our bodies betray us.
