Hey, I'm Anemone!

New York, New York

Anemone Productions was founded by actor Nancy Nagrant, and focuses on generating work for film, television, and theatre with an emphasis on the female protagonist. Anemone’s inaugural production was the short film Find Some Love (2015) written by Michele Aldin Kushner, and directed by Melissa Attebery. The next project was a reading of a new play by Steven Fechter (writer of the award-winning 2004 film The Woodsman). The play, Genesis, was directed by Emmy Award winner Michael Laibson, and performed in 2016 for an enthusiastic standing-room-only crowd at Theatre 54 in NYC. In early 2018 she produced her first full-length theatre production-- Rosemary and Time by Jennifer Fell Hayes, directed by Kathy Gail MacGowan, which played at Paradise Factory Theater in NYC.

 

Anemone completed production on 3 short films in 2018, all in collaboration with director Michelle Bossy. Miracle Baby, starring Nancy alongside Stephen Kunken (Billions, The Handmaid’s Tale), is another collaboration with Mr. Fechter, and is best described as the Greek-myth Medea meets House of Cards. Stag Party, written and starring Sami Bass, with Alex Hernandez (UnREAL, upcoming Bloodshot), explores a couple who search for closure in a relationship where love was not enough. And Untitled Josephine Cashman Project, written and starring Josephine Cashman, with Heidi Armbruster (Younger) and Marinda Anderson (New Amsterdam), about a woman who wants to tell the man she loves about a disease she hides, but her anxiety and worry lead her on a rollercoaster ride of rejection.
