Written By: Ron Hutchinson
Directed By: Harry Dewar

In June at the Arts Theatre find out how the film “Gone with the Wind” was saved from being gone with the wind!

Acclaimed movie producer David O. Selznick has a problem: his massively hyped production of “Gone With The Wind” is bleeding big money, the script is unfilmable, he has fired the director and the production has been shut down.

Disaster looms! He needs a new script and a new director now!

With renowned screenwriter Ben Hecht (who hasn’t read the book) and celebrated director Victor Fleming (who is up to his eyeballs in directing “The Wizard of Oz”), and a diet of bananas and peanuts, he locks the group in his office for five days to create a screenplay that will save the film. Filming the burning of Atlanta is easier than this!

Frankly my dears, you must see this play!
