A Comedy by Ron Hutchinson

Premiere on 25 April, 2019 through 22 June, 2019

Hollywood, 1939. The iconic movie Gone With the Wind (based on Margaret Mitchell’s bestselling
novel) is in full production. But producer David O. Selznick hates the script as well as the
direction. So, he calls screenwriter Ben Hecht, who has not read the book, and director Victor
Fleming into his office, locks the doors, and demands that the three of them come up with a new
screenplay in five days. With conflicting opinions at every turn, and under enormous pressure, the
men resort to acting out scenes from the novel themselves in order to create the dialogue for the
new script. They bicker and shout, hurl peanuts and insults at each other. They practically come to
fisticuffs over what became some of the most memorable moments in the film. This hilarious
comedy, though based on real circumstances, is an imaginative account of the creation of one of the
most popular movies of all time.
