"Barbara Masry's new comedy Rewriting Her Life is a tribute to the aspirations, disillusionments, and collaborations of struggling theater artists everywhere. This sharp and sophisticated romp tells the story of a struggling Manhattan playwright who returns to Brooklyn University, her alma mater, seeking a production of her latest play. Ambition and romance collide when she hooks up with her old college crush who is now the Acting Chair of the Theater Department," explain press notes.
