Hollywood, 1939. Producer David O. Selznick has just five days to turn the disastrous script of Gone With the Wind into a blockbuster or he’s ruined for life. He recruits director Victor Fleming and screenwriter Ben Hecht (who has never read the book) to help salvage the project, but it’s not exactly a willing collaboration. Selznick, desperate to save a movie many consider to be a train wreck in the making, locks them all in his office for a marathon rewrite session. This funny and fascinating behind-the-scenes play comes to vivid life as three icons of the film industry battle over what became one of the greatest movies ever made.

Allergy Note: large amounts of peanuts will be shelled on stage.

A strobe light is used for several minutes during the play.
