‘BETWEEN THE LINES’ is an ambitious, uplifting musical comedy short film - Directed by Dom Lee with Music & Lyrics by Grace Hancock.

Shy book lover JANE enjoys nothing more than reading at her beloved library. When library manager ALICE is called away and the pompous COUNCILLOR announces that someone will have to pitch today to save the library from closure, Jane is unexpectedly tasked with this and the prospect of confronting her worst nightmare…

Just when hope is seemingly lost, help comes from an unexpected source and we embark on a fantastical musical adventure, where many well known book characters aim to help Jane overcome her anxiety. Can Jane deliver the pitch? Can the library be saved? The answer might involve a showstopping musical number...

Filming will provisionally take place in Devon during September, but might be delayed depending on COVID restrictions and location availability. It will likely involve rehearsals beforehand.
