Actress Brandy Burre is currently a guest artist performing in CRT’s The Laramie Project (October 8-18, 2015), Join CRT for a special screening of this documentary film, followed by a Q & A with the actress, Brandy Burre. Brandy Burre had a recurring role on HBO’s The Wire when she gave up her career to start a family. When she decides to reclaim her life as an actor, the domestic world she’s carefully created crumbles around her. Using elements of melodrama and cinema verité, ACTRESS is both a present tense portrait of a dying relationship and ex exploration of a complicated woman, performing the role of herself, in a complex-yet-familiar story. It’s a film about starring in the movie of your life.
