BUENO KEY Private Fundraiser
Apr 26 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
BUENO KEY Private Fundraiser
BUENO KEY is a British drama about three characters trapped in a world of addiction. Danny is a drug dealer who takes up acting as a means of self-expression, resulting in an obsession that alters his personality and creates a rift in his relationship with the love of his life. Made by a completely dyslexic team under DYSPLA and directed by male/female duo bielecki & bielecka, BUENO KEY follows Danny, his girlfriend, and his acting coach as they each struggle with their respective vices. It courageously explores how expression can offer the illusion of escapism, but begs the question: can we ever truly break free from our addictions? 
$10 suggested donation to this private fundraiser. Call 321-544-4726 for details.
Produced by DYSPLA – the first arts organisation to develop, produce and promote the work of dyslexic and neuro-diverse storymakers. Established in 2007, DYSPLA has exhibited work throughout London and internationally.
