Postiche poster Version 1



POSTICHE  tells the story of JIM (Daniel Schroeder) who feels his relationship has quite literally come to a dead end.  What he hasn’t expected is that KERRY (Natalie MacMahon) feels exactly the same.  They have lived a sham marriage for longer than they care to acknowledge. And so, the time has come for them to play out their Endgame.
