7:11, by Head Writer Leilani Downer.
Head Writer Leilani Downer debuts a moving and timely story about a nurse in a Covid ward who receives a visit from a spiritual entity.

Inspired by the works of TV/Film such as HBO's Six Feet Under, or Robin William's What Dreams May Come, 7:11 should provide actors with an opportunity to occupy characters living in a supernatural world, while being overtaken with real world emotion.
