You think Lena Dunham is just another Hollywood flavor-of-the-month? Well, if you're tight with the Sundance Institute or WGA-East and live in New York and RSVP in time, you can check out her latest project on December 6.

The reading of Nobody Walks, written by Dunham and Ry Russo-Young and directed by Ry Russo-Young, will be mounted at the Sundance Institute and Writers Guild's latest Screenplay Reading Series of Works-in-Progress:

It's a provocative look at the sexual entanglement that ensues when a driven young artist invades the home and family of a Hollywood sound designer helping her finish her first film.

Here's indieWIRE critic Eric Kohn on Tiny Furniture (Dunham's amusingly snarky portrait of ‘postgraduate delirium’) and my flip cam interview.
