Directed by Traci Sky Sprague. Fast-talking, quit-witted satire of Hollywood written by Mamet- whose work is a genre of itself. In this hilarious dramatic-comedy, the play spotlights the American movie business: Charlie Fox and his friend Bobby Gould have a new script that they both see as their ticket to the Big Time. As they prepare their pitch to the studio boss, Bobby wagers Charlie that he can seduce the temp/secretary, Karen. As a ruse, Charlie gives her a novel by “some Eastern sissy” writer that needs a courtesy read before being dismissed out of hand. Karen slyly determines the novel, not the movie-star script, should be the company’s next film. She seduces Bobby, who is so smitten with Karen and her ideals that he pleads with Charlie to drop the star project and pitch the “Eastern sissy” writer’s book. (Content: Strong Language)
