Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
An imagined conversation, inspired by real events. The producer of Gone with the Wind, David O. Selznick, asks Hattie McDaniel to politely decline to attend the premiere of the movie in Atlanta, making sure she's aware that if she doesn't comply, she'll never work again, and hanging an Academy Award nomination over her head for good behavior. Ultimately, and painfully, she decides to go along with his request.
