The Narcissist Next Door
6476 Santa Monica Blvd Hollywood
Sebastian is rich (heir to a fish-stick fortune), handsome, gay and unattached. Although independently wealthy, he would really like to establish himself as a professional photographer. His best friend Kate is straight, single, and would like to get her play produced. Meanwhile, she works temp jobs. Enter Sebastian’s new neighbor Tony. He introduces them to a Peruvian self-help discipline called The Source. Suddenly, Sebastian lands a gig shooting photos of Charo Vergara (Sophia’s hotter sister). Kate lands a new boyfriend, Robert (“He was raised Catholic. He has a job. My mom’s going to love him.”). There’s just one thing: Tony is one of the most self-absorbed human beings on Earth, an insufferable narcissist who will eventually drive anyone in his orbit bonkers. Sebastian arranges to go to his photo shoot in Mexico with Kate and Robert. Tony invites himself along. Once there, they are captured by kidnapers who tie them up and threaten their lives.
Can the quartet escape the kidnapers alive? Will Sebastian, Kate and Robert ever escape Tony? Suggested for audiences age 14 to Adult.

"...If you’ve ever wondered why sitcoms are only 30 minutes rather than an hour or longer, then drop by The Narcissist Next Door at the Complex, with a running time of 70 minutes. The first 25 minutes are pretty funny, the second 25 minutes aren’t bad, but the last 20 minutes are tough to stomach. It’s like going to a dessert café where you are served order after order of crème brulee. At some point you just want to throw up."
