Why See Desperate Writers?

A couple of desperate writers, with the baby clock ticking and their home about to be sold out from under them, are driven to desperate measures to get their script read, bought and made in this hilarious, fast-paced, screwball comedy, that pokes fun at the crazy film biz. Desperate Writers, an 80-minute laugh-out-loud riot, will have scenic design by Lauren Helpern; costume design by Stephen Donovan; and lighting design by Jeremy Pivnick. It is presented by Carnegie Hill Productions, James Spry, Michael Alden and Pam Laudenslager.
