The Ego Never Rests, My Beloveds


Atosa and Becca. Two strong, smart, independent women. Never taken in. Almost ever. Except that one time.

This is their story.

Truly the Ego Never Rests, My Beloveds is an exploration of the things that make us susceptible to the things we never imagined we'd be susceptible to. The show is inspired by the creators' respective cult histories, the psychology of power and the power of the second-person-present-tense.
