May 15 – June 13, 2004 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Around 2 hours

A world premiere

The year is 1939 and David O. Selznick is making the mother of all movies, Gone with the Wind. The cast is in place and cameras are rolling. There’s just one problem—Selznick doesn’t have a script yet. So he locks himself, director Victor Fleming and script doctor Ben Hecht in a room with little more than peanuts, bananas and a typewriter, and they proceed to reenact the saga of Scarlett and Rhett. Only this is Scarlett and Rhett like you’ve never seen before! This world-premiere comedy is a hilarious homage to the men behind an American movie classic.
