The Tragedy of the Commons
by Stephen Metcalfe
Directed by Sean Murray
Dakin Adams, a retired schoolteacher, spends his days writing and sending his thoughts – his blogs – out in the void that is the Internet. His wife, Macy, walks the dogs and gardens. It would seem the only thing they have in common anymore is their home, their memories and their love of “the view” – the Pacific Ocean as seen from the back deck of the house. But now their neighbor is selling and the new owner is coming in to tear down and rebuild – build “up” – and the view – and the fragile relationship of two people – is in ever-increasing jeopardy.
