[title of show]

Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends, Susan, Heidi, and Larry on lady eighty-eights. With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what the hell to write about. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what the hell to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival's deadline and dream about the show changing their lives. [title of show]—taken from the space of the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show]—follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their own show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends, and artists. [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre—a uniquely American art form—and to the joy of collaboration.
