The feature, written by Gary O. Bennett & Alyssa Rallo Bennett, directed by Alyssa Rallo Bennett, and featuring Elisabeth Moss, Zach Galligan, Lucie Arnaz & more, follows a young man prosecuting his mother for killing his father via second-hand smoke. The film tackles themes of societal awareness and personal responsibility with a universality that makes it even more relevant today.

The Pack is the story about a young man who is prosecuting his mother for killing his father via her second-hand smoke. Legally plausible, the story brings to the forefront the complexities and anguish of how any of us can get caught in the cultural and legal shift of our nation.

General information

Alyssa Rallo Bennett - Artistic Director Gary O. Bennett - Executive Director Kate Bagoott - Managing Director Nico Alvo - Facility Director Gabriel Frye-Behar - Instructor, Director, Director of Photography Ellen Parks - Instructor, Casting Director Ted Sluberksi - Instructor, Acting Coach Vance Barber - Instructor, Acting Coach Andy Roth - Voice Coach and Casting Director Jennifer McCabe - Instructor and Director Zach Galligan - Instructor, Acting Coach Stonestreet pioneered the craft and teaching of screen and film acting when other acting schools and pundits said there was no such thing as a craft of "film acting." Others claim to have started earlier, but it was Stonestreet that elevated film acting to an artform, to think of it as a unique artform, and tried to understand it as a craft, rather than some simple adjustment from stage acting. Stonestreet is an acting conservatory that does not instruct in just ONE acting technique. We respect all backgrounds, all training, and we have instructors and working professionals that do NOT decry any technique. We are an OPEN acting school, the primary focus of which is the art and craft of screen and film acting. Stonestreet also pioneered the concept of "actor empowerment" in film. Stonestreet does not believe actors should wait around for filmmakers, casting directors, agents and producers to "discover" them, or cast them. At Stonestreet, we empower actors by helping them make their own films, and we give them the tools and the contacts to do just that.
