The Suzy Prophecy

Writer, director and actress Heather Juergensen (Kissing Jessica Stein) has produced what she calls a "Labor of Love" without all the nasty blood and mucus that comes along with most birthing processes.

On May 29th, fifty some-odd invitees enjoyed the ten-minute short at Hollywood's Cinespace restaurant, something of a dinner theater with facilities for screening movies.

In just ten minutes, Ms. Juergensen was able to work in a call to a suicide hotline in which the operator had to ask around for the script appropriate to the caller's particular issue; a data entry job in which neonatal death statistics are being organized; and a suicidal coworker who's been meaning to give up smoking.

The wacky irony of it all comes to a head when life and death seem to struggle in a sexual embrace.

Not bad for just ten minutes, but then who needs foreplay when you've got the wicked insight of The Suzy Prophecy.

Never did figure out why its called The Suzy Prophecy, though. Perhaps that will become clear in the sequel.
