Indian Summer (2016) is a half hour pilot episode that served as a prequel and proof of concept for Dramatis PersonaeThe episode follows a day in the lives of four actors in New York, with parallels to the four main characters in Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov.

"... a wonderful portrait of people that I feel like I know and also a world that seems foreign and familiar at the same time. [...] I felt that behind the comedy was a sincerity that expressed a period of life where we are silly, fragile, confusing, curious and meandering." 

- Stephen Lee, Filmmaker
