Fail-Safe tells the tale of scientists looking to salvage what is left of humanity after a mysterious virus has taken out the majority of the human race.

We Say Such Terrible Things is a comedy about a dinner party of five men, some friends, some strangers, who have nothing nice to say about each other or anyone else they know.
