Moonlight and Magnolias
23 Feb, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The play is set in Hollywood 1939 – semi-independent mogul David O. Selznick has just shut down production of Gone With The Wind after three weeks of shooting. His reputation is on the line and he is determined to have the rewrites completed in five days. He engages a somewhat reluctant script doctor Ben Hecht – possibly the only person in the US not to have read the novel. Together with his new director, Victor Fleming (poached from the set of The Wizard of Oz), the three are locked in Selznick’s office for five days with nothing to eat but a stockpile of bananas and peanuts to sustain them. What follows is a hilarious clash of egos as they endeavour to complete the script within the timeframe.
