Friday, May 1 at 7PM
speaking & signing
with Owen Egerton for a recording
of The Write Up podcast!
Through strange metaphysical circumstances, failed screenwriter Brad Cohen finds himself caught in an infinite time loop, forced to relive the first forty years of his life again and again. Each repeat, Brad wakes up in the womb on what was supposed to be his fortieth birthday, with full knowledge of what s come before. Repeat answers the question: If you could live half your life over, would you do things differently?
