Literary Giants Battle it out in Witty Drama Scott and Hem
COMP - $22.50*
The scene: Hollywood, 1937 and writer F. Scott Fitzgerald is holed up in a Hollywood villa, desperately trying to finish a screenplay, and stay sober, under the watchful eye of Miss Montaigne, the personal assistant to Mr. Mayer (as in Metro, Golden, Mayer). The raucous party happening outside his window would be distraction enough, but then the notorious Ernest Hemingway enters the room and Scott and Hem really gets going. In this witty drama from Mark St. Germain (Duma, Freud's Last Session) the two authors battle it out on everything from the perils of creativity to their fears of death and wishes to live on through their writing. There are plenty of secrets spilled, Hollywood gossip shared and one-liners flung about as both men struggle to deal with the vulnerabilities in their careers and lives. It's an imagined conversation but there's no doubt you'll walk away from Scott and Hem feeling like you know Fitzgerald and Hemingway -- not to mention Hollywood's seedy underbelly -- better than ever.
