Not Him Premieres at Soho Film Festival
Ryan plays Joe in Sarah Young's short horror film "Not Him" which premiered at the Soho International Film Festival and was nominated for Best Short. Michelle and John seem like the perfect married couple living a comfortable normal life. But behind closed doors, John has become increasingly strange and violent. Michelle becomes convinced that something is terribly wrong with her husband, but struggles to be believed even by her best friend Kim. Determined to prove her sanity, Michelle confronts her husband, sparking a night of unthinkable truths and a fight for survival.
Agamemnon in Agamemnon
Ryan plays Agamemnon in Agamemnon at The Gallery Players. First performed 2,500 years ago, this trilogy of Greek tragedies is foundational to all western theater. Following the vicissitudes of the infamous House of Atreus, starting with the murder of Agamemnon at the hands of his wife Clytemnestra, the Oresteia asks what sort of society do we want: a vindictive, vengeful society or one where the rule of law prevails?
The Page Turners at Portland Stage
Ryan plays Oliver Thomas Jr. in Mallory Jane Weiss’s The Page Turners, Gold Prize-Winner of the Clauder Competition. In a fictitious-kind-of-1844-or-so, four somewhat-Victorian women, Kipper, Mary, Sadie, and Alice are “The Page Turners,” a book club determined to redeem themselves after their disgraceful showing at last year’s Book Club Conference. The Page Turners questions how to shape our identities as women not by society’s rules but rather by the women we surround ourselves with, the choices that we make, and the books that we read.
Art With a Capital A
Ryan plays Caleb, a "Found Sound Artist", in Mallory Jane Weiss' Comedy Series about what it means to create "important art". Coming Soon!
