Union Square Theatre
100 E. 17th Street New York, NY

The New York Premier of Desperate Writers, a "madcap, screwball comedy" about two writers in their 30's, Ashley and David. Ashley wants to get married and have a baby. David wants to wait until all his ducks are in a row, i.e. sell a script, make some money. Ashley will do whatever it takes to sell a script. ANYTHING!!!



Critics raved calling this 80 MINUTE, NO INTERMISSION farce "A zany, rollercoaster of fun" (Entertainment today), a "A wild, hilarious ride, side-splitting screwball comedy" (Geri Windsor, Kaleidascope Radio) and said "Desperate Writers puts laughs on life's struggles that most can relate to, especially in recent economic conditions. Desperate Writers is filled with great one-liners and witty comedy.



The results are situation comedy at its best.
