Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theater festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends Susan, Heidi and Larry on the eighty-eights.
[title of show]—taken from the space on the festival's application form which asks for the [title of show]—follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self- expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists.
Above all, it's a love letter to the musical theater—a uniquely American art form—and to the joy of collaboration.
