This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it's a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!
A Marine sergeant returns home after completing her third tour in Afghanistan. Unable to sleep, wracked by paranoia and anxiety, she carries unseen wounds. It is only a matter of time before she can no longer bottle up her trauma, and a boisterous welcome home party provokes her into an explosive outburst. Her husband is at a loss, and the VA seems to be an impossible option. When she has nowhere to turn, she runs deep into the woods.
In this Crabcake, we spoke with producer/director writer Remy Auberjonois and producer/writer/actor Kate Nowlin. We talk about why this story is different than all the others (spoiler because it is the first time involving women returning from combat), why the lead character is only referred to as "Our Sergeant," and what it took to bring it to life along with how they both hope it resonates with the audiences!
