Today is My Birthday

February 2021

written by Susan Soon He Stanton

Emily is a would-be writer whose bubble life in NYC has popped. Finding life back home in Hawaii chaotic and unfulfilling, she becomes strangely activated after creating a sassy alter-ego for a radio bit. Told through a playful mixture of live radio, voicemail, and phone calls, Today Is My Birthday is a quirky comedy about life with a thousand friends on Facebook and no one to have dinner with on Saturday night.
