My short play Hacks, a story of two old Hollywood hack screenwriters, is going to be presented tonight over Zoom along with other short plays by the Wine Box Players. Showtime is on September 22 at 7:40PM EDT and will go until 10:30PM EDT, 4:40PM-7:30PM PDT, here’s link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/3080641380 In Hacks, Nathanael and Herman come up with one outdated and ridiculous movie idea after another until they’re confronted by reality in the form of a modern studio executive.
I originally wrote Hacks as short story. It had been prompted by Reed Magazine’s call for submissions about cliches. My entry was turned down, so I posted it on my site, here’s link: https://robertkirkendall.com/2021/01/30/hacks/ I also saw it’s potential as a short play so I adapted it into script form, and now it’s going to get its debut performance tonight. Huzzah!
