Directed by Lori Wolter Hudson (assistant director of Broadway's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Philanthropist and Pygmalion), the work was recorded live at Ripley-Grier Studios in New York City March 16 with a cast that includes Greg Etling as Michael Walker, Jenny Neale as Susan and Scott Guthrie as The Stranger. RSVP, according to New, "takes place in Middle America in the early 1970s. To be specific, this is the morning of Michael and Susan's wedding. Michael is a nonfiction writer by trade, but on this morning – when he should be getting ready for the ceremony – he finds himself fixated on his first attempt at fiction. Writing what he knows, Michael creates the protagonist in his own image. However, when his fictional self is confronted with a familiar stranger from the future, the real Michael is unprepared to face some facts."
