New York producer, Jerry Cobb, has invited wunderkind playwright, Nebraska Jones, for an all-expense-paid trip to paradise. Cobb has invested all his money commissioning Jones’ next play, which he believes will eclipse his Broadway debut – hailed by critics as a “masterpiece of comic timing.” What happens when you’ve paid for the next hit comedy, but what’s coming out of the typewriter is tragedy? In this “vintage” screwball comedy skewering an artistic life in the theatre, the line between comedy and drama comes under hilarious scrutiny and is found to be much narrower – and sillier – than you’d think.
Price: $65 to $70
