About this show

This delightful play takes audiences into the inner sanctum of 1939 Hollywood in a fun, fast-paced world-premiere comedy. Movie mogul David O. Selznick has just shut down production on his epic movie, Gone With The Wind, and locked himself in his office with screenwriter Ben Hecht and director Victor Fleming -- whom he dragged off The Wizard of Oz set -- to rewrite the script. The three of them work for seven days straight re-tooling the adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's celebrated novel, wrestling over every detail, from the shape of the plantation pillars to Rhett Butler's famous final words to Scarlett O'Hara. This funny and fascinating behind-the-scenes piece comes to vivid life as three icons of the film industry battle over what became one of greatest movies ever made.
