The Howling Wind

Ask not for whom the wind blows; it blows for thee.

A crisp lil’ two-hander, this short, which comes off like a missing episode of The Twilight Zone, pits two men against each other, and their fears.

Outside, a dust storm blows across the 1963 prairie, reportedly causing those caught in it to go crazy.

So when a shotgun-wielding homeowner finds another man has snuck inside his house, his first reaction is not to welcome the man with a warm bearhug.

As they warily circle each other, the new roommates could be us, living here in the Age of Coronavirus.
