Moonlight and Magnolias on at the English Theatre

The English Theatre in Vienna is putting on a production of Ron Hutchinson's Moonlight and Magnolias between 31 March and 10 May.

Set in Hollywood in 1939, the comedy Moonlight and Magnolias tells the real life story of producer David Selznick's rush to get a script together and save the film production of 'Gone with the Wind', the world's most eagerly anticipated movie that is at risk of being scrapped.

Set over five days in Selznick's apartment, he and two colleagues frantically attempt to rewrite the novel 'Gone with the Wind' into a screenplay. With top writer Ben Hecht on his side, Selznick thinks that it will no problem at all to turn around the script in just a few days. That is until it turns out Hecht is one of the only people in America who has never read the book and has no idea of the plot.

Eating nothing but peanuts and bananas, Selznick, together with director Victor Fleming, then attempts to re-enact the whole of Gone with the Wind for Hecht's benefit and a mad marathon creative session begins.

Nominated for the 2004 Joseph Jefferson Award for New York, Moonlight and Magnolias has been well received, despite Hutchinson being more well known for his TV and Film screenplays.

Now there is a chance to see the play at the English Theatre in the eight district of Vienna. To find out more or buy tickets visit www.englishtheatre.at, email tickets@englishtheatre.at or call +43 1 402 12 60 0
