Three legendary men hole up in Hollywood Producer David O. Selznick’s office to rewrite the screenplay for what would become 1939’s Gone with the Wind. With equally clever and profound writing, playwright Ron Hutchinson creates a captivating fantasy of what it may have been like to be a fly on the wall during these historic moments of American pop culture.

Reviews & Testimonials

"Moonlight and Magnolias is an excellent example of a Hollywood screwball comedy of the 1930s. The extraordinary thing is that it has been written in the 2000s and by Ron Hutchinson"
