Erin C. Buckley ’06 is thrilled to announce that her short-form digital series, PLATONIC, is now available for streaming exclusively on YouTube. Set in a memory of New York City just before the pandemic, PLATONIC follows Olive (a gay Brooklynite) and Billy (her straight best friend) as they look for love and document their search via voicemail messages to each other. Many YSD alumni collaborated to bring this series to life, including actors Erin Felgar ’07, Joe Gallagher ’07, Richard Gallagher ’06, Ryan King ’04, and Jordan Mahome ’05; producer Roweena Mackay ’05; co-producer Amy Aquino ’86; costume designer Christina Lorraine Bullard ’07; and writer-director Erin.
