The Iris Odyssey Series

Growing Iris

Revenge Best Served Tepid by a Cold Thespian

Her past confronted, her flops exposed, she needs her luck to change.

Iris Peacock is a stagnant actor temping at a law firm to get by. She's stuck, and needs to get her nerve back.

When Kal Mulgrew (her former stage director) suddenly appears at the office, Iris is compelled by an otherworldly impulse to take action by filming a guerilla-style documentary - Desperate: What it Took to Land a Part.

The shoot places Iris and her fellow thespians in a risky situation fraught with lust, change, and prosciutto.

Budding Iris

Welcome to Iris Peacock’s world – where the metaphysical is part of every day.

A former fledgling thespian and current barista, Iris believes she can break into film with a little help from two Jane Shores and a Nicholas Rowe. For Iris, the ingredients of inspiration are: tequila, bold women, YouTube and the heart of Vancouver’s West End.

But will anyone take her seriously? If she sported a beard, would that help? With history prodding her – she goes to the Nine O’clock Gun in Stanley Park and meets eccentric characters from the theatrical past.

Can Iris Peacock become a famous filmmaker?
