Production Background & Fun Facts: I wanted to craft a story that played to my strengths, despite my limitations: 'Accentuate the positives, hide the negatives.' - Paul Heyman. New England geography offered a breathtaking, although frigid location, particularly when shooting oceanside in the heart of a February nor’easter. I also had the advantage of a wealth of talent from the thriving theater community.
