The plot line revolves around ‘Darla’ (Chastant), who opens a local business with alimony she received from her recent divorce. Darla creates a space where people can go to blow off steam in a controlled setting creating a “rage room” (ironically, the latest craze sweeping the country). With the aid of a young vagabond, ‘Puja’ and his generous heart, ‘Darla’ confronts her beliefs about humanity while dealing with the everyday drama and comedy of creating a business from the ground up. They are nothing short of an odd couple dealing with compelling neuroses within as they race towards a cathartic breakthrough.
Also starring Sarah Lancaster (Chuck, Everwood) as you’ve never seen her before, the stellar cast includes Matt Biedel (Mad Men). Take some time and watch any of or all six of 3-5 minute webisodes at: rageroomshow.com
