"A little gem of a comedy. Morogiello clearly knows his milieu. He even gives himself a glancing mention, as a persistent supplicant whose scripts Jim tosses straight in the trash. However, anyone who threw out Blame it on Beckett made a big mistake." - TheatreMania.com

Heidi Bishop is a wide-eyed dramaturgy intern, eager to better American drama. What she encounters instead is an endless stream of bad scripts by desperate playwrights and an office filled with cynicism and turf battles, led by her bitterly hilarious boss Jim Foley. When Heidi's efforts to improve things run into unintended consequences, she is forced to confront idealism with reality to save her career, reputation, and relationships.

A humorous play, with sophisticated writing.  One of the few plays that I have worked on that I realized something new each time we rehearsed.

For the script being about a couple of dramaturges, I was skeptical at first. Once I got into the text I was submersed which humor that can only be funny if read and acted straight up. This is a great script and will direct this show!

Fabulous writing and show. Was the hit of our last season. Thanks John!
