‘HACTRESSES’ is a wacked 6-part comedy web series about EVIE and LUCY, two naive best friends who ambitiously strive to achieve one big dream: to become successful actresses before they hit thirty. Despite years of failed auditions, demeaning jobs and unscrupulous bosses, abject poverty, failed relationships and very little progress, their dream (or is it a delusion???) never dies.

The girls’ only real performing work is uploading acting scenes and Vlogs onto their YouTube channel with the assistance of their live-in-Landlord and long-suffering friend, financial backstop and washed-up musician TOMMY MCFARLANE (DAVE O’NEIL). 

In their desperation, they attempt to court the favour of their hack agent as well as producers, directors and casting directors. Instead, they just receive propositions from users, losers, phonies and big-time nobodies.

Although their lack of success may dampen their spirits at times, it definitely hasn’t extinguished the flame that has burnt brightly within them since they graduated from drama school. The upside of their naïveté is irrepressible hope and a crazy and highly unhealthy co-dependent friendship that seems capable of surviving anything, because it has already survived everything.

Created by and featuring Belinda Kirwan (as Evie) and Nina Nicols (as Lucy).

Starring: Dave O’Neil, Lawrence Mooney, Mark Coles Smith, Jo Stanley, CJ Fortuna, Ben Hall, Abbe Holmes, Paul Ireland, Belinda Kirwan, Nina Nicols, Alf Nicdao, Eliza D’Souza, Tom Travis, Chris Gafney, Loraine Fabb, Brenda Addie, Chris Gibson, Stephen Luby, Rob Taylor, Hannah Thiesz and Daria Elizabeth Fortuna.
